Daft Punk Tribute Band Funks Up the El Mo

If you missed the announcement of their show, you'll have to live through these photos from the funked-up live show of Daft Punk Tribute last Saturday night at The El Mocambo.

Fresh off seeing The Indies wrap up Canadian Music Week earlier in the evening, I headed upstairs at The El Mo around 11:30 p.m. In spite of the blistery winter weather, the place was already packed and rapidly heating up.

The trumpeter playing in a motorcycle helmet was a key visual centerpiece for the 11-piece band. Having a live horn section certainly helped bring life to the electronic music of Daft Punk.

These Humber College music performance students played almost nonstop until 2 a.m. The bar got livelier and the crowd got sweatier as the night went on. After an encore of One More Time the DJ took over, mixing in a little Kayne West ripoff for good measure.
