Did Daft Punk Play Avalon Last Night? Nope! It Was a Prank

Reporting by Dennis Romero

The buzz on Twitter today: Daft Punk played at surprise set at Avalon Hollywood last night.

Starting after midnight, lots of folks in attendance reported witnessing -- or thinking they were witnessing -- the helmeted French duo, famous for teasing us by not playing Coachella this year:

So what gives? Was it actually Daft Punk?

Of course not! This is Daft Punk we're talking about.

Says Alastair Duncan, the PR for Avalon: It was a cover act, "externally booked for a private event."

They were called OMT.

Sheesh.
