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?


the non-musical energy on stage was impressive, from the struggle over control of the football helmet to the push-ups between songs. the pulsating lamps worked out quite nicely.
Back in the day, I think that richard perry used to wear the helmet while using it as a percussion instrument!
i was almost positive i saw him doing that during sasquatch. it was also the hottest part of the day, so i was pretty sure that i was hallucinating :)
he definitely did that at sasquatch. crazy fun times.
