The energy Phoenix brings to its live shows is a big reason the band is one of our FUV Essentials. Another reason is that they treat big stages like Brooklyn Steel (where Phoenix kicks off a five-show run tonight) the same way they do the small "stage" of our own Studio A. It's been home to a few memorable Phoenix sessions, and today on FUV Live, we'll bring two of them back to the radio.

At 8 p.m., flashback to 2006 when the album It's Never Been Like That was new and Phoenix stopped by to perform a set of tunes and talk with Rita Houston. Then at 9 p.m., hear the band's most recent visit to FUV (also with Rita), when the guys sat around a table in Studio A in the spring of 2017 and played songs from Ti Amo, as well as the Phoenix fave "1901."

You'll hear both sessions live on 90.7 FM and streaming online tonight, but they're also available anytime in our Vault, along with more Phoenix performances from over the years:
