The music for this episode comes from this year's Vegoose festival held in Las Vegas. For the past 3 years the same crew that puts on Bonnaroo Festival has been throwing a Halloween music and arts festival of the same vein, minus the camping. I've never been to it personally but each year I try to download some of the sets that were fortunate enough to be taped (LMP Fact: the first episode featuring Dave Matthews and Tim Reyonlds was from Vegoose 2006!).
This year I was pleasantly surprised to find Daft Punk's Vegoose performance hosted on bt.etree.org. If you are a fan of electronic or house music you've probably heard of them, but recently they made a huge jump into the mainstream music scene when Kayne West sampled their track on his song "Stronger". The video for "Stronger" also features an homage to the band. For the past decade most if not all of Daft Punk's public performances and interviews have been held with them in robot suits which are similar to the ones piloting the spacecraft in Kayne's the video.
I was not aware of this until putting together this podcast, Daft Punk will be releasing a new live album titled Alive 2007 on December 4th, 2007. So if you enjoyed the Vegoose show I expect the live album to be very similar since it will contain the duo's performance in Paris from their Alive 2007 tour.
