Scumby's impending adventure reminded me I've got less than a month until they mosey down here. All that's left to do is find out who the hell the Suburbs are and why everyone likes their album Arcade Fire so much.

Enjoy the show, Uncle T-Bag.

My ears still hurt. I was so psyched from the show that I couldn't fall asleep until the wee hours of the morning, so I called in "sick" from work today. To say I had fun would be an understatement. Local Natives were great, Arcade Fire were even better. The sound mix on the first few songs sucked ass, but they luckily fixed it, and the rest of the show was phenomenal. I danced and sang a lot.

Apparently Win's grandpa lived in Utah for a long time, and he used to visit a lot, which was news to me. They also apparently had a bunch of family and friends at the show, so apparently they still have some sort of connection. We also got mentions of Jimmer, which was humorous.

This was the setlist.

Month of May
Rebellion (Lies)
Neighborhood #2 (Laika)
City With No Children
Rococo
Intervention
The Suburbs
The Suburbs (Continued)
Suburban War (Win forgot lyrics and pretty much just stood there and laughed through the entire second verse)
No Cars Go
Haïti
Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)
Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)
We Used to Wait
Wake Up

Encore:
Ready to Start
Keep the Car Running
Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)

I thought so, too, at first, but the segue into We Used to Wait was actually quite wonderful. Not as outrageously awesome as Power Out/Rebellion but I didn't feel cheated or anything.

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.

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.

At the outdoor show at Thanksgiving Pt, Utah in '07, Win mentioned that he and Will used to spend a lot of time in 'those mountains behind us' with their Grandpa growing up. Both were also raised in the predominant religion, although are (obviously?) no longer practicing.


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?)
