Here’s the Greek during the day, just so you know what this place is all about:

America’s Best Venue!

Anyway, Arcade Fire pretty much now rival The Decemberists in my world of music, and if you haven’t seen this band live, please please please do before you die. All I can say is that pound for pound, they live up to (and surpass!) all the hype out here on the blog-o-sphere.

As for any kind of real review; absolutely trenchant, transcendent, wonderful, marvelous, no adjectives can really describe Arcade Fire‘s stage prowess and the way they hold the crowd in their hand, the amount of command they have, the hush that falls over the crowd at the start of each and every song…

It’s really quite remarkable, something to behold.

Seriously, SEE THIS BAND!!!
