arcade fire: seattle is the next seattle

"I know this is an opera house, but we're running out of time; so let's get to know each other" -- Win Butler

Tonight's Arcade Fire show concluded with a really neat extended version of "In the Backseat" that brought almost all the members of the band on a parade through the audience & directly in front of me. After their exit walk across the floor and into the lobby, they came back inside and wandered among the stragglers.

So great, right?


I really doubt it. As fun as it would be, I think it might put me over the line into actual groupie. And I don't think I'm actually cut out for it. As much as I enjoyed last night's show, I noticed that there's something of a diminishing return on seeing the same band twice in a week. Maybe once one breaks through into true groupie status, one learns a whole new level of appreciation. I'm definitely not ready for that kind of dedication.
