TVD Live Shots:
AIR at the Auditorium Theatre, 6/20

French duo AIR—Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel—have been treating ears to their atmospheric anthems since 1995. Their debut album, Moon Safari, lived in my car stereo for the better part of my college years. So needless to say, I was thrilled to finally see them live and in color for the first time ever—and on their first US tour in 7 years.

As expected, they did not disappoint. After almost every song the crowd gave AIR a standing ovation to the point where the ovations lingered long enough for the house lights to come up. Their set was a nice mix of the band’s discography with extra attention played to Moon Safari and 2004’s Talkie Walkie.

Their tour continues in July as they make their way around Europe for the remainder of the summer. I highly recommend. Merci, AIR.
