The White Stripes show I went to was amazing and so was Arcade Fire. (both in Montreal)

I don't know which one was better, all I know is that they both put on incredible shows. At the end of the day all I care about is if I was entertained or not.

Just found a bunch of early AF demos from around 2001-2002, very interesting stuff. It's up on Demonoid if you want to torrent it.

And is their b-side "Brazil" from the "Cold Wind" single a cover? I could've sworn I've heard it before.

i saw them in early spring this year at brixton, at the time when neon bible had barely come out, which meant i did not quite enjoy songs like 'keep the car running', 'no cars go', 'my body is a cage' as much because they were all still relatively new songs to me

the thing about them is you need to hear their songs about 3 times to 'get', and up to the time i saw them at brixton i only heard tracks to neon bible once

although i was in tears for songs such as rebellion - lies, and 'wake up'

I want to see AF again very bad, but it's just not practical this leg.

I've seen both AF and WS this year, and I wouldn't trade either show for any other show. I love this year in music.

This is somewhat random, but does anyone know if there is a specific story behind "In the Backseat"? I have been wondering about this for quite some time.

Arcade Fire
Opening acts: The Gossips and LCD Soundsystem
Seattle, Washington
Hec Edmundson Arena, University of Washington (basketball arena)
9/24/2007

Wow, what a performance! Arcade Fire put on one helluva show tonight. Spirit was in the house!

Setlist, as best as I can tell from my notes scribbled in the darkened arena:

1. Black Mirror
2. Keep The Car Running
3. Neighborhood #2 (Laika)
4. No Cars Go
5. Haiti
6. A new song that we didn't recognize, with Regina taking the lead
7. Neon Bible (short version)
8. Black Waves/Bad Vibrations
9. Intervention
10. (Antichrist Television Blues)
11. Well & The Lighthouse
12. Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)
13. Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)
14. Rebellion (Lies)

Encore:
15. Headlights Look Like Diamonds (from the EP)
16. Wake Up

(Did I forget a song before Wake Up?)

So I got there a little bit after 7, and The Gossips, a 3-piece band, came out on stage and started chatting with the crowd (I didn't know who the heck it was talking to us, some woman, I thought she was just making announcements) and then launched into their set. I'd never heard of them and didn't even realize they were on the ticket. Corianderstem arrived a few songs into their short set. The band wasn't bad, but I won't rush out to buy their CDs either.

LCD Soundsystem was next. I'd read last week in the Seattle P-I that Arcade Fire and LCD Soundsystem are huge fans of each other. LCD put on a good set, with a few songs I knew, a few songs I didn't. One or two of the songs were boring, but overall I was impressed. A few songs in, Win, Regine and one other member of Arcade Fire came out and helped out on North American Scum (Win played the drums and sang backup). LCD also played All My Friends, Someone Great, and a song that I'd have to call Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah, Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah (that song was pretty redundant). They closed with New York I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down.

This was my first time seeing Arcade Fire live, and it was a total thrill. I like U2 better historically, but Arcade Fire is my favorite band of the moment, and it's such a treat to see them perform at this early stage of their career. I love how much passion they put into their performance -- they really bring it. I can only imagine how big they'll be five or 10 years from now.

No Cars Go is my favorite song, and it was visually stunning. I don't know exactly how to describe it, but the wall behind the band was turned into a giant screen with black and white images of what seemed like zombie-like faces in a movie theater or other some audience setting, hands covering their cheeks with a terrified look in their eyes. Well, it was much like this YouTube video of the song from Europe this summer:
