Thanks to the internet called Kottke, I watched the Arcade Fire's "takeaway show" [blogotheque], in which they perform "Neon Bible" in a freight elevator and "Wake Up" in the middle of a crowded auditorium. It's neat seeing them backstage, getting ready to perform, and Richard Perry tearing up a magazine as part of the rhythm section (he always seems to be the happiest one in the band, doesn't he?). I'm getting pretty excited about seeing them next [!!] week.
That website also has a street performance by the Shins [#] playing on the streets of Paris, which, even though my lack of planing leaves me crippled with anxiety, gets me pretty excited about going there next month, too.
