Will Daft Punk Be In Detroit This Weekend?

Will Daft Punk be in Detroit on Monday? This poster is at Gratiot and Randolph. Maybe for Movement? We shall see. The website DaftDet.com had a countdown, but doesn’t seem to be working.

In the new issue of Rolling Stone, Daft Punk finally revealed the real reason why they wear their trademark helmets.

Member Thomas Bangalter said:

“We’re interested in the line between fiction and reality, creating these fictional personas that exist in real life. Kraftwerk and Ziggy Stardust and Kiss; people thought the helmets were marketing or something, but for us it was sci-fi glam.”

“One thing I like about the masks is that I don’t have people constantly coming up to me and reminding me what I do. It’s nice to be able to forget.”

Today, Daft Punk has different versions of helmets – some with built-in air conditioning and communications systems, for live shows; others made of materials that photograph better, for shoots and projects.
