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.
