The Arcade Fire

Wow, what an incredible experience. It's been something that I've been waiting for a long time, having just missed the boat on the Neon Bible tour. Granted we had the worst seats in the house; our view of the stage was obscured by a giant speaker box, but I could see the screen well enough, which gave me plenty of closeups of the band. There is just something indescribable about them. Everything that was going on in my head instantly disappeared the second they cut into Ready to Start. I was enthralled, the entire show was just one long euphoric eargasm. The energy that they show makes me have faith in humanity again, if only for an hour. Even though so many of their songs are sad, they have this undercurrent of hope or rebirth. It's as if nothing can keep them down. They played all the songs I wanted them too, and a few I wasn't expecting. Overall, 10/10, fantastic show. Hearing the crowd sing along was incredible, that place was a cathedral.

  4. I don't like indie much besides a few songs from arcade fire ( wake up , rebellion , My body is a cage) and Neutral milk hotel (The airplane , king of carrot flowers and Holland 1945)

    This songs ok , not something I'd listen to but neither something that would bother me
