This one of the few bands I am more then willing to pay this crazy price.

I think this also needed a Yes - But I still have no interest in Arcade Fire

i once paid 40 dollars to see jim jones, hell rell and jr writer at the redzone.
i paid 25 dollars to see jim jones on three other occasions.

this show isn't that caliber but still i have never seen lcd soundsystem, and i like arcade fire.

Library show is Thurs, this show is Fri. Unless library show got moved.

Also, Wes' reasoning is the same as mine. Never seen LCD. And since I'm obsessed with LCD, this show is must-see.

By the way, to the folks who aren't impressed with Arcade Fire, have you ever seen them before?

There is no "I wouldn't be going unless I had guest list privileges" option.
I likey the Arcade Fire, but yee-ouch, $40?

Mr. Duffy and I saw Arcade Fire a couple of years ago at Little Brother's. When he asked me if I wanted to go, I was like, "Who's the Arcade Fire?"

One of the best shows of my life!!!

Me too, but I only have one kid.

I don't think I'd pay $40 to see any band.

Scratch that. I'd pay $40 to see Tom Waits, the Minutemen or if Hüsker Dü was now what they were in their heyday.

Yeah..after seeing that show. I felt like there was a real purity to it.
I was afraid they were a Christian band. Then I realized they were just Canadians, and their brains haven't been processed like mine.

i took ryan hand on a date to that show b/c my girlfriend had too much homework. we drooled at the foot of the stage and shook their hands afterwards like fanboys, but we'd only had the album about a month and a half at that point (more?). anyway, the lady's pissed, now, that she didn't go, then, thusly, 20 duckets for Arcade Fire + 20 clams for LCD Soundsystem (her favorite disco enema) = a pretty fuckin 'pleasing for both parties' 4 year anniversary gift, am i right? better than a candy coated nutch and a bland Cameron Mitchell experience. i only wish it wasn't in that NORAD of a venue.

I wouldn't miss this show for anything. It looks like AF has been playing pretty much the same setlist each night on the tour (with minor changes), so expect tomorrow night to look fairly similar to this:

Black Mirror
Keep the Car Running
Laika
No Cars Go
Haiti
Intervention
Anti-Christ TV Blues
Windowsill
The Well & The Lighthouse
Ocean of Noise
Tunnels
Power Out
Rebellion

Encore: Wake Up

I interviewed James Murphy and made it into a podcast. Listen here.

After the interview I thought of about a dozen other things I would have liked to ask about, and I feel like I jumped in to talk a few times when I should have let him keep going. But I think if you're interested in LCD you'll like this.

EDIT: I'm having trouble with the Windows Media stream, so use Quicktime if you can.

CONCERT PREVIEW


Arcade Fire can’t be typecast



By Chris Riemenschneider STAR TRIBUNE (MINNEAPOLIS)




Five months after its second album, Neon Bible, was issued, the dramatic Canadian ensemble the Arcade Fire has cemented itself as one of the most vital new rock bands — albeit a peculiar one.
The record, immediately alluring but hopelessly ambiguous, often resembles a dark and apocalyptic masterpiece, full of strings and pipe organ — and cryptic lyrics, which mine everything from religious zealotry to MTV tween fame.
Yet the enigmatic frontman, Win Butler, isn’t inclined to explain it all: Along with his wife and their chief collaborator, Regine Chassagne, he remains an elusive interview subject.
The group, teaming with the New York disco band LCD Soundsystem, will stop tonight in Columbus for a show in the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion.
Arcade Fire drummer Jeremy Gara, who often stands in for band mates on the phone, recently called from their hometown of Montreal to weigh in on a few topics.

• On the touring schedule:
The Arcade Fire has never been a road hound, the kind of band that plays 300 dates a year. The 5-year-old group is about midway through its Neon Bible tour, which began in the spring.
"We’re kind of right at the point where we’re starting to get a little weary of it," Gara said. "This next American tour is going to be fun, though, because it’s to a lot of cities we haven’t played on this trip yet. Just the size of the shows is kind of daunting now. The U.K. tour is going to be, at least mentally, something to overcome, because it’s all in arenas — big venues, and not particularly nice venues."

• On Neon Bible sales:
Commercial success caught up with the band’s critical acclaim: The album sold 92,000 U.S. copies its first week and made its debut at No. 2 on the Billboard chart, a major feat for an indie release (it’s on North Carolina’s Merge Records). Both Bible and the band’s 2004 compact disc, Funeral, are nearing gold status in the United States (500,000 copies sold).
"The whole financing and selling of albums is a mystery to us. It was hard with this one. When Funeral came out, they just pressed like 10,000 copies, and that was it, at first. It was totally bizarre how much it wound up selling because it never really exploded, but it never really died. It just consistently kept selling.
"With this one, there was a huge investment made on Merge’s part to make sure there were like 200,000 copies right off the bat. But then we had to make sure we really marketed it so it did sell. So in that sense, we are happy — or even just relieved — that it has been selling."

• On the idea of a tour with 10 other people:
Officially a seven-member band, the group usually bulks up on tour. This outing features three extra players, including horn player Kelly Pratt of the band Beirut. Adding members doesn’t make touring more complicated.
"Even when we were just six people and Win was in school, it was hectic from the beginning for us trying to make everybody’s schedules fit. Now, it’s more fun, especially now that we have buses. The family is bigger. And there are more options of who you can hang out with. Inevitably, a few people are going to go out and have fun one night and a few are going to go to bed. There’s enough to choose which you’re gonna do."

• On the next album:
"We’ve been banging around a couple of parts, a few rhythmic ideas.
"A couple of the songs we’re already playing with are totally different from each other. It’ll definitely be all over the map. We’ve all played too much, and been in bands before this one, to stay with just one certain aesthetic, like ‘Oh, this has to sound indierock.’ The Arcade Fire doesn’t suffer from that at all, I’m happy to say."
