I just realized I see them again next week (for some reason I thought it was two weeks out) when they stop in my little Neighborhood to play for some 1800 people out of the sheer kindness of their awesome selves.

I'm so incredibly happy that 1,800 people is a small crowd for them now. When I first saw them four years ago in a crowd of 2,000 (with The National opening), it was par for the course for them. Now, it's damn near impossible to get tickets to the same show in a room that can fit 10,000. Their story is a truly awesome one.

Yeah, I seem to be going backwards with them. I first saw them at Madison Square Garden (25,000 people), then Denver (6,000) now NM (1800).

Given the fact that I've only been able to see them in crowds of some 50,000+, I'll relish the opportunity to see a proper show.

I feel like the only asshole on this forum who hasn't seen them.

They came to Philly during a four day span when I had no access to a vehicle.

I attended the show last night as well. I was very impressed how well the new songs off The Suburbs sounded live. Month of May, Rococo, Suburban War, Ready To Start, and of course We Used To Wait, were all awesome.

My only complaint is the show seemed to go so fast. I wish I could go see Arcade Fire again tonight.

I think Dalton was sitting next to us. Doesn't he seem like the checkered shorts type? (or am I just thinking about his past?)

Seats, and closer to the back, but still had a good view since its not a huge venue. I wish I woulda been in GA. I missed when they went on sale, and so my buddy just picked up a couple tix a week or so ago. I was surprised there wasn't enough ticket demand to open up the upper level of seats though. Still a pretty good crowd I thought.

Didn't the crowd seem really young though? Maybe I'm just hitting that realization that I'm one of 'the old guys' at concerts now, but man it seemed like there were a lot of high school age people there. And yeah the sound sucked at first, I was glad they seemed to fix it a few songs in.

I enjoyed The Local Natives as well, I need to go find their album.

The headdress would have tipped you off.

He can afford douchebag seats after his starring role on Twin Peaks:

I thought of that, but since he knew I'd be there, he may have tried to go incognito, like an ordinary Denver guy (who are all very white and wear checkered shorts).

In fact, much as I like Denver audiences, it's always the whitest, blondest bunch of people under one roof I've ever seen.

Even if he skipped the headdress, the checkered shorts would have been supported with a belt made of human scalps. You'll know our man Dalton when you see him.
