On Thursday, February 15th I got to see my favorite band in the universe Arcade Fire live at Judson Memorial Church in the Village. (Terrific venue to see a show) It is so nice when things that come with such high expectations do not disappoint. I’m looking in a thesaurus right now to find an appropriate adjective to describe the show. They were stupefying! I absolutely love all the songs from the new record Neon Bible and they all sound great live. But the highlights of the show for me were “(Power Out)” (see below) and the in-the-crowd end-of-the-world encore of “Wake Up”. I’m glad that we live in an age where you can go to a show one night and find video of it on the World Wide Wonderful™ the next. This person has no idea that the dinky little video he/she took on their cell phone is now sitting comfortably on my iPod. Thank you!
