Concert Review: One More Time: A Tribute to Daft Punk

Thursday, Feb. 7-

Along with their replica chromed helmets and full scale pyramid stage, the DJing duo formerly known as Daft Punk’d brought the sweet electronic beats of the world renowned dance music group Daft Punk to the Blue Note Tuesday night.

The dance music group, under the new name One More Time: A Tribute to Daft Punk, started off the night with the tremendously catchy song “Robot Rock”.

The entire crowd was extremely anxious to see the group after two local DJs performed including Missouri’s own Ubervice; however, not anxious in a good way. Ubervice played for what seemed like longer than One More Time played and the crowd was getting a little bit tired of his show. The crowd even cheered during his performance whenever there was a light test on One More Time’s stage.

All the realistic aspects of the group’s show really add up to quite a fantastic Daft Punk experience at an affordable price. According to One More Time’s Facebook page, the technology they use in their shows “create the perfect Daft Punk inspired vibe and [they] perform an awe-inspiring encore in electro-luminescent suits, reminiscent of the ‘Alive 2007’ tour.”

While “awe-inspiring” might be a little bit of a stretch, One More Time plays a great show. Their hour and fifteen minute set consisted of “Daft Punk anthems, club bangers and their own remixes” also according to the band’s Facebook page.

House music fans around the world (pun intended) may get to see some new music from the real Daft Punk in the near future. According to an article on theverge.com, Daft Punk recently signed with Sony’s Columbia Records and the group will release a new album this spring.

One More Time may very well be the start of something big in the world of tribute bands.
