FOR ME MY NIGHT WAS MADE WHEN WIN CAME OUT TOWARDS ME AND HIS LEG BRUSHED AGAINST MY HAND....AND WHEN REGINE STOPPED PLAYING TO THROW A BEACH BALL ABCK TO THE AUDIENCE...ADN WHEN WIN DID THE SUBURBS REPRISE...ANDJUST ALL OF IT OH GOD.

AND I DON'T NEED ANYTHING EXPENSIVE; I WAS JUST TELLING SIZZLE THE OTHER DAY THAT THE BEST ENGAGEMENT RING EVER WOULD BE "THE ONE RING", AFTER ALL, IT DOES RULL THEM ALL!

EXACTLY, IF ANYTHING WE NEED TO PUMP THEM WITH JUNK FOOD, KEEP THEM ENERGIZED FOR SHORT PERIODS OF TIME, SO THEY SAVE IT ALL UP FOR THE SHOWS. REGINE IS A FAIRY SO SHE'S PRETTY MUCH IMMORTAL AS WELL.

YOU KNOW WIN SAID RECENTLY THAT HE DOESN'T WANNA BE AROUND IN FIVE YEARS (LIKE DOING MUSIC)?
WHEN WE SEE THEM AT THE GROCERY STORE WE HAVE TO TALK SENSE INTO THEM.

Interesting. A lift is an odd place for a band to play. Almost as odd as in the middle of a crowd:

So you would recommend going to watch this band then?

Well, I may well go and see them. Although probably not now. Probably December 11th. And possibly December 8th. Just to, y'know, randomly pick dates out of my head. To add to the times I've definitely not seen them before.  :)

Don't post here enough, but I just gotta say that seeing that the Arcade Fire love has grown substantially since I last posted here it makes my heart happy :) I heart them so much! I agree that they are the one band I'd recommend above all else.

Since I couldn't wait any longer to see them (they really are THAT good), I said fuck it and decided to fly to London to see them with my best friend at all 6 UK shows Dec 1-14. I am going to die from excitement. (But hopefully after the shows, or else that would suck.) And you know what, I know it still won't be enough and I'll be plotting my next crazy scheme when new tour dates are announced soon enough.

All the justification I need:

Meh, I've seen them at a far smaller place than that before now.

I've heard mixed reports about it as a venue. It's an old railway station and has a very high roof - worried that the sound will disappear into it. We'll see, I guess. The best thing is the fact that it is only a 15 min walk from my flat.  :P
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: pinksavannah on October 20, 2010, 10:37:53 PM
But on this leg I mean, it's one of the smallest UK ones, I think. I think only the Big Sur/Hackney Empire gigs were the smallest they had done all year. Unfortunately I don't see many really small venues in their future anymore except on rare occasions like those. I would have loved to of seen them at a really intimate venue myself :(

The sound will definitely be interesting. I prefer outdoor venues myself, that was where I first saw them too, so it will be in interesting comparison.

But hey, the positive is at least you can attend a show period! You'd probably be more upset if you couldn't see any heh! And if it does suck (which I sincerely doubt) or isn't as good as past experiences, I should say - you didn't travel far haha  ;D

Wake Up in the audience totally beats Neon Bible in a lift.  :)


I'm torn as to whether to buy a ticket for another night of their UK tour. I could do it, but it would be mean staying overnight, leaving stupidly early the following morning to get back to work and probably cost about £100 in hotel/train fares. Decisions, decisions.

Sod that, she lives 11,000 miles away and I'm spending about £1,500 going to visit her next year, she'll be lucky if she gets ANY xmas present.  ;D

I'm broke for about another 10 days until next payday, will decide then.  :)

I'm gonna be spending close to 2k - if not more, for my trip, so I say DO IT! Fuck being sensible, live another epic night with AF. You will probably regret it otherwise ;)  You could also potentially get a long (cheap) overnight train/bus and skip the hotel, just sleep on the way back. We plan to do this on a couple gigs anyways. Or try volunteering - but that is only like a 10 days notice IF you get it :/

And I suggest night two in London. I have a feeling it will be monumentally epic. Reason being all their night two shows in the same cities featured awesome, changed up setlist/new 'old' songs  ;) Here's to hoping anyways!
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: Jteeman on November 06, 2010, 07:43:08 PM
I'm tempted to do Birmingham and Glasgow. London is too difficult to do, would have to ebay tickets and it is midweek. Plus it is mid "tour" as it were, so wouldn't expect too many surprises that night.
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.

I think Glasgow would be a solid choice, considering it is the last stop and the crazy Scots! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUvLnSMw5rc

Ah, love that clip. To be honest, most crowd clips of Wake Up are stunning, it's the best crowd participation song I've heard in years.

Barrowlands is a cracking little venues, saw MGMT there back in 08. The SECC, where Arcade Fire are playing this time, is a but more soulless though.
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: pinksavannah on November 06, 2010, 08:45:19 PM
Definitely! I get chills if I just hear the song when I think about my own Wake Up moment! Hands down the best concert moment of my life thus far.

I would love to go to Barrowlands! :( I've always thought it seemed like a very cool place.

Do post if you decide on another date though :) Gosh, Dec 1 can't get here soon enough!

As of right now, Arcade Fire is a better band all around but MGMT still needs more mileage.
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: Jteeman on November 07, 2010, 06:57:51 PM
I don't see them ever being better personally, and that isn't intended as a slight on them in any way whatsoever. Doesn't mean you can't have more fun watching/listening to them than AF, but Arcade Fire are up with Radiohead in terms of the best bands I've ever heard and seen. They're just that damn good.

I know and I agree completely. I just thought it was unfair for MGMT to be compared to them. I know we're in an MGMT forum but still.

^ oh yeah i agree, mgmt need more mileage, but honestly i don't see them ever getting there, they've had two albums and by this point arcade fire were already solid and everythign they had was gold really.

idk.

This year there'll be no Arcade Fire concert for me :(

The date was canceled because it would compromise the security of the NATO's conference. The band was sweet enough to show willingness to play a day before the scheduled date, but the city didn't authorize in the end. AF is (L).

Regarding some of the pretentious/negative comments. Obviously not everyone is a fan and that is fine, but my main comment to them is judging Arcade through this one performance really doesn't do them justice by any means. While SNL as a whole had tons of great fan moments and ultimately I am giddy, their raw energy truly can't be held on that baby stage. - Even though they still brought it. But musically, it's not the best they've ever sounded either but that again that is attributed to the setting. And I do think they just wanted to have fun thus with the costumes, digital short and what not. They've got so much reports for being so serious and dark with the previous albums but all members are all incredibly hilarious in their own ways and not many see that and deem them as trying to hard to be something or whatever. But I am not worried about those tweeters/reviews or anything, Arcade rules all in my book and whether I am the only one who knows or the whole world does - it doesn't matter to me. No one is bursting my happy little bubble here tonight ;)

Anyways, gotta take some drugs - aka - cough medicine and force myself to sleep after SNL has me wired to bounce off walls.

*humms* WHOOOOO USEEED TO WAITTTTT?!!!!!

I just saw the whole episode, it was so great. Quick question - while watching the performances my dad noticed Nick Zinner, guitarist of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, was in the background. There were never any closeups of him or anything so I couldn't be positive, but it looked like him to me! Yeah Yeah Yeahs are from New York so it'd make sense if it was him. Anyone know anything about that?

“While looking for a drummer for his band, already called Arcade Fire, he came across passionate music student Regine Chassagne, the daughter of Haitian immigrants who fled Francois ‘Papa Doc’ Duvalier ‘s regime in the Sixties. She would play music in shopping malls and supermarkets to support her family, make lawyers dance at Christmas parties with just a tambourine, mandolin and flute.”

“They saw Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, a Chinese film with French subtitles. ‘I didn’t hang out with many English-speaking people, and I forgot Win wouldn’t understand.’ Regine translated for Win, whispering into his ear, a first act of intimacy. ‘Then we went to a party and we met all your friends. I was wearing a cowboy hat, coming from Texas, and you thought it was so exotic. You wanted me to wear my cowboy hat everywhere.’”

“You don’t think about it in those terms. I’d just broken up with a long-term girlfriend, and I wasn’t looking for a relationship - I thought, What am I doing, here I go again. But I was so excited by it. We haven’t been apart since, apart from a couple of weeks the first summer… I’m just really lucky to have found Regine, to have the love of my life as part of the most important thing in my life. It’s not all sunshine and buttercups, but it is a very stabilising force. I think her creativity comes from a really pure place, and she’s very sensitive to ugliness and cynicism.”

“Jesus Christ. How in the hell are they still going?”

I tend to shy away from focusing on Win and Regine because by the nature of their roles in the band they are always going to be at the centre of a lot of good things. I like to look at some of the "lesser" lights, so to speak, especially when I've seen a band a couple of times before. it's like with MGMT - i spend far longer watching James, Will and Matt than I do Andrew and Ben most of the time.

I think Will (AF) is one who doesn't get a lot of attention and I looked at him! the chicks are boring and the ginger is funy but scary.

and as far as MGMT goes I looked at Andrew some but he just kind of stood there for most of it so I wandered a lot to James and Will. Oh James, what lols you don't induce.

Oh, wasn't sure which you were meaning, so took a punt at band members.  ;D

in terms of favourite songs, Wake Up is and always will be my favourite, especially live. It's just so epically uplifting; you can't hear it and not come away feeling better.

Other songs I love a lot include Intervention, Ready To Start, Tunnels, Laika, Power Out, City With No Children. But, to be honest, I love pretty much every song I've ever heard of theirs.

I'm the same way at concerts, though I tend to do it out of pity more. I'll always be looking around the stage, often at the drummer, because I want them to feel loved (because they are loved!) xD

Wake Up is such a wonderful song, I can't ever blame someone for that being their favourite. I've been digging Ready To Start, lately.

and as far as MGMT goes I looked at Andrew some but he just kind of stood there for most of it so I wandered a lot to James and Will. Oh James, what lols you don't induce.

William and Richard are often doing something daft together when I've seen them, always good.

James is just ace. Getting him to stop playing and start waving at us mid song during Congratulations at Brixton is still one of the funniest things I've seen happen. Bless him.  ;D

I'm quite gutted I never saw them when they were touring Funeral - I know people that did, really small venues and apparently they were epic. I only really got into them the tail end of that album and the Spring 2007 tour was the first one of theirs I was aware enough to go and watch them at.

What size is the venue? If it is 10,000 or less, I'd aim for about 4-6 hours before doors. The bigger it gets beyond that size, the earlier I'd be getting there.

Don't get me wrong, i've pretty much loved 90% of the gigs I've ever been to. but certain things can make it that little bit more epic.

Seeing a band as good as these live in a tiny venue would have been brilliant. Which is two of my most favourite gigs are my first MGMT show (about 750 capacity venue) and my first Dead Weather show (capacity about 150).

I can see Arcade Fire being an epic masterpiece of a show.

Everything's different overseas. Vampire Weekend was just in/near Jacksonville, FL (where I live) not too long ago with Beach House opening for them, which is of course great, but you see how over there everything is taken up a notch? Vampire Weekend opens for Arcade Fire.... *sigh*

I really don't want to like Vampire Weekend, especially because they tend to be immediately associated with MGMT. Plus, when I saw the video of them wishing "bad luck" on Vampire Weekend, though they were just kidding around, I dunno... from there I really didn't want to like them.

But I can't help it. I do. xD

I like VW, don't get me wrong, I just don't think they'd be a good supporting act for Arcade Fire.

I was just looking through a few entries on setlist.fm and I found something interesting - recently, in Mexico (http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/arcade-fire/2010/teatro-estudio-cavaret-guadalajara-mexico-5bd517a4.html) they started with 'Keep The Car Running' and in LA (http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/arcade-fire/2010/shrine-auditorium-los-angeles-ca-33d524bd.html) it was the second song they played. To be this seems kind of odd because in the first full AF concert I 'watched' (MSG webcast) they had it in the encore (http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/arcade-fire/2010/madison-square-garden-new-york-ny-43d5bf87.html) which, personally, feels more like it fits.

I'm sure though that whatever the setlist is at the O2, it will be amazing  :)

People still associate VW with MGMT because people still associate musicians by their looks and location, not the music.
I still associate said people with the desire to shove a spoon up said people's associate.

Post by: pinksavannah on November 17, 2010, 08:05:00 PM
Going back a few posts, I actually agree with Jteeman, I really dislike Vampire Weekend. I really do hate all the MGMT association with them. I might not should knock them so much since I've only heard a few songs, but I do not likey, sorry. If Dublin hadn't been so expensive for their ticket too, I might have tried to swing that too. But I really shouldn't complain since I'm seeing them so many times in the UK already heh.

And Richard is my favorite after Will. Richard is an understated God! But Will rocks all for me :) But heck, Sarah is this power of dynamite, Marika & Owen kill it when they play, Tim makes me laugh so much, Jeremy rules and is a fucking amazing drummer, and of course Win and Regine are love. I fucking love them all! <3

Ready to Start is a solid opener, but I really love when Arcade switches up their setlist, esp lately. It happened in the last sort of batch of dates on the tour recently. Threw in the wildcards like Backseat, OPENED with fucking Tunnels. Month of May into Rebellion (vs the usual Power Out into Rebellion). I really love when they get a little bored and change things up. Makes for really special shows. They played Ocean of Noise at the show I saw back in August and it hadn't been played since 2008 (I believe) so I nearly died when it started. It's one of those things you feel that was done for you, vs, the standard setlist. Although Wake Up is the natural closer for good reason these days, I wish I could have seen when this was the opener. The only thing I find odd about their setlist these days is they play all of Funeral almost, now touring The Suburbs and they hardly play anything from Neon Bible (Intervention, Keep the Car are the givens) but anything else has been pretty rare :(

Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: pinksavannah on November 17, 2010, 11:12:02 PM
I definitely think R2S is a fantastic opener, and amazing song in general! When I saw them, it didn't get quite the reaction it does now since the album just released. But now that The Suburbs has set in everyone's paletes for a few months, I'm sure it will be a totally different expierence next time I see them. So If I'm making a general statement about an average audience who hasn't "warmed up" or a big fan of the band, Tunnels is probably a slow opener, well slower. But personally, I'd say heck no. I'm obviously biased since it is my favorite song and deeply personal for me (or at least tied with Cage), so it's something that would make me the most excited. And really the whole last arc of Tunnels is monumental so I don't think it's a drag, but quite the opposite. Starts you off slow and then overwhelmingly impactful - especially live. Ohhh ohhh hooohh  ;D

However, with that being said, since it is that 'special' I do like it served towards the end. But I still think it's awesome how they did away with a predictable start up for a show a while back and would like to see more of dis. :)
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: Purplebash on November 18, 2010, 05:04:16 PM
I love Tunnels. I bet you'll see a much different reaction from the crowd now that The Suburbs has been around for a little bit. But incredibly enjoyable.

But yeah I'm one of those people who can't get enough of songs that build, and Arcade Fire does that all too well. Tunnels would be good as how andrewsexra said, but I'd be too 'NO WHERES THE REST?!?!?!' xD
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: pinksavannah on November 18, 2010, 05:14:32 PM
Agreed! So many of their songs are amazing bursts of energy from the get go it never lets up (Month of May, Rebellion, Power Out, Laika) - so much to the point you are dead at the gigs LOL. And songs like Intervention, No Cars Go, Une Année Sans Lumiere (back when it WAS played), Haiti live, and of course Tunnels, among others, feature this amazing build up that is so awesome. I don't think any other band captures that 'switch' as beautifully.
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: Purplebash on November 18, 2010, 05:25:17 PM
Power Out is EXACTLY an amazing burst of energy as you said it. There really aren't many other bands that can perform such a powerful click like that. I can't think of one now... Mika is another artist who I not only love, but I think he is wonderful at creating builds, though it's just not the same as Arcade Fire. He builds, but there's rarely that big DROP, you know, where you just go "WHOA I love this song"

My point is that they reworked it to fit in with Neon Bible, so it is representative of that album really.

It's not that surprising they don't play that many songs off it - they play the singles from the first two albums, then 6/7 from The Suburbs and then a few others - Funeral is really the album that "made" them, so it's not surprising they focus on it.

I mean I can understand why, I just love the album so I'd like to see more tracks from it these days than their usual few picks from it. There are so many amazing songs that haven't been played in so long. I wonder if they themselves miss playing them? On that note of songs I'd like to see, I'd also give my arm to see Headlights Look Like Diamonds live.  :D But I know there isn't enough time to do all this really.

I do think Neon Bible is actually a complex album for people to get into though. Almost anyone can immediately relate to The Suburbs and it's the most literal, Funeral is also extremely relatable. Childhood, growing up, etc. Where as Neon Bible was sort of not as personal on some levels so maybe it's harder for people to connect to. Lyrically more about the world and less your part in it, its also very politically themed/social consciousness which has put off many people I know. But musically, the sound is beyond massive. (Especially Cage and the mentioned tweaked No Cars). However I relate to NB the most after Funeral myself. It was actually also my introduction to them so I'm extremely partial to wanting more from it!

Regarding all three albums as a whole, they are the most consistent and fluent I've heard. And even if you listen to them back-to-back-to-back, they flow almost as if it's a life unfolding. Funeral, being young and as you grow. Experiencing the first of life changing emotions.  Neon Bible, my interpretation of young adulthood, a bit angsty, and now The Suburbs, looking back and remembering. Full circle. Well this is my opinion anyways :) Gosh they are such amazing pieces of music!

Sorry I tend to ramble in these late hours ;P

While listening to The Suburbs with my dad not too far back, my dad mentioned something I wouldn't have thought of. He said 'Doesn't it sound like he kinda wants to have kids, break down, and be a family?' He mentioned City With No Children and how he thinks he's referring to the whole music scene and how it's fun to be out and about with adults, but when it's 24/7 and you don't have kids, you may desire something more, like children. I think it makes total sense.

Post by: pinksavannah on November 19, 2010, 07:07:21 PM
I agree with that wholeheartedly. And actually Win has made several comments recently about how he doesn't want to do this forever so it really supports the songs if you interpret them this way. And then Will said in an interview that he feels like by the end of this tour someone will be having a baby and that will lead this person to wanting a baby and so on. Which is why I feel I MUST see them as much as possible on this tour. So it definitely seems they are after more personally than just their world domination musically - haha  ;D. The moment Win/Regine get pregnant it could be the 'end' of the band for a long time. I don't see them being like an act to breakup (god I pray not!) but I can definitely see them going into super long hiatuses and albums YEARS and YEARS apart, shorter tours etc. :( The thought of that makes me want to cry  :'(

I can tell u they were in atl about three months ago and probs won't be that close for another year or so. Maybe they'll go to festivals in the u.s. Though

Oh, I think I remember that, we thought of going (cuz we love Atlanta) but decided against it... urgh, should have just done it! Next time they're anywhere near, I'm not missing it for anything. Unless MGMT is near at the same time.

I drove from Atlanta for this reason because I didn't want to take that chance. Glad I did too! I know there was a bunch of people who drove from Florida for the ATL show. It probably would have been your best bet, but too late to dwell on that now sadly.

All I know regarding tour dates are they will be touring in 2011 up until 2012, I think Will said anyways. Their manager tweeted some time back they will hit Texas and I'd assume surrounding areas next Spring. But I don't believe they have ever gone to Florida and I know a lot of fans are disappointed by that :( It would be great if they snuck in some FL dates like MGMT did later. But there is no telling :/ I'm sure they will do some festivals next year. Odds are in favor of things like Coachella & Glastonbury. Best start saving now and keep your eyes peeled at the beginning of the year. Ultimately make a plan to travel to them if you have to - haha  :D I promise you it is worth it!

Something tells me I'm catching a festival, I can feel it xD Usually bands don't come to Florida unless it's Miami. I bet they wouldn't even hit the south if there wasn't Atl. Freakin' stereotypes - not the artists' fault, of course, for assuming 'the south' is the way they think. The majority of it is. But, MGMT gave Florida a try, and I bet they'll come back now that they've seen the great turnout. More artists need to give it a shot - there's usually enough people who care around to sellout a show.

It's probably from the new video for The Suburbs, which is pretty cool. Last night I was all drunk and stuff and some guy had a shirt that looked like a Tic Tac Toe grid and so I'm playing Tic Tac Toe and shit with my index finger right? I get to the top of the grid with my finger and it reads Arcade Fire. I then subsequently let out an an appropriately tuned, "Holy fuck!"

I was in about the same spot for MGMT just on the other side.  You're right, it was crazy, everyone body surfing and people getting dropped.  After MGMT I moved up even closer for Arcade Fire which meant I had to stand there waiting for over an hour before they even went on but it was worth it.  I was probably only 10 people back at most from the stage for Arcade Fire.  Great video by the way.

The crowd surfing was ridiculous. I got pushed towards the front and lost my group (forumers  8)) and it was fucking crazy, the crowd surfing was ridiculous. I thought I was gonna pass out so I went back to them and it was a lot better. Good thing we moved for Arcade Fire cause I was shivering when we got out of the massive crowd.

I didn't feel like the crowd was rough at all and I was pretty much front and center for it.  Definitely more calm than the MGMT crowd. There was still crowd surfing though, but I think you usually see that no matter who the band is.

front center at my show and when win would come to my part of the crowd people would all push into me, naturally, and there was some crowd surfing and...the crowd wasn't that rough but they certainly were into it...a tinge of roughness.

I think that generally the Arcade Fire crowd is not rough cause they want to have fun but also be into the show. Whereas in MGMT shows people just care about 3 songs so during the rest they just do whatever.

I would never say an Arcade Fire crowd was rough, but they are move lively that MGMT crowds, generally speaking.

Compared to some gigs I go to, they are both a walk in the park, to be honest. :p
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: pinksavannah on November 24, 2010, 05:48:40 PM
I had the worst pit expierence when I saw MGMT in Ohio this year. Fucking terrible, missed several songs and had to leave too after waiting 6 hours or so. But when I saw them in Raleigh, granted only the "bottom section" could move to the stage it was much better, close but not aggressive like the other gig. People were downright insane at the other show. So much so that it put me off from wanting to be in the pit at any of their other shows, but I was there for the Raleigh one and it was okay, but keep in mind the whole audience wasn't GA. So I suppose it just depends on the location of the gigs too. Really a shame because I agree that MGMT is not a mosh band. Jumping and having fun is one thing, but wanting to kill the people in front of you because they are closer? Not cool. But it happens.

When I was in the pit for AF it was crowded and lively, but really the best 'pit' expierence I've ever had. Everyone was into it and close, but I didn't feel like I was going to pass out and didn't really getting shoved or anything (was third row). The only bad problems I had was when a drunk guy came up during Tunnels and was using my shoulders as a crutch which was really pissing me off, but then he backed off. In fact everyone at AF was really awesome, and some people let me in front of them since I was so short. I didn't want to take their spots but someone pulled me and placed me right in front and was second row then. Which I thought was pretty cool :) So I had a really good crowd experience at my gig

God this thread makes me so freaking happy.

My MGMT experience was just a bunch of shoving. People were really arrogant. I have to say, at least they were truly into every song. But it was such a mess, especially during Kids. If MGMT wasn't my fave band and that wasn't my 1st time seeing them I would have left mid show. I want to see Arcade Fire soooo bad now... ever since I've seen this thread my love for them has doubled, and it was already huge. My dad's all 'Since when were you THIS big a fan?'

yes! Will be at both the London shows.

Have you ever been to this venue before? I would kind of like to know what time people start queing. I want to get as close as possible, and since I'm coming from the US I don't know anything about when people might start waiting here. I've heard people are pretty mellow about the wait there and don't go very early, but this is going to be such a huge venue. I don't know!

It's at the O2 right? The beauty about the O2 is that there are various bars and restaurants around it, so you can spend time in there if you get there and there isn't a queue.

As for time the queuing will start - I'd say people will be there from about midday onwards. Probably not too many that early, as it is in the middle of the working week, but if you want to be right on the barrier, I'd be getting in the queue by 2pm at the latest, I'd have thought.

I had a dream I met Arcade Fire. It was amazing. It started where I met Bflow and I hung out with him and got photos etc., then I was in some strange hotel dealy on a computer and Regine comes up to me (I wasn't even aware Arcade Fire were in the area so it was really cool and random, I was like, BFLOW AND AF IN THE SAME DAY?) and asks if she can use my computer. She checkes something then we get to talking and I'm like can I get a pic and she's like not now but tomorrow night? I'm like ok but i think i have work, what time? she's like i'll be free all night and i'm like scooooore.


then win comes over and i talk to him and ask for a pic and he's really cool about it only everyone i try to get to take photos is really reluctant/ can't sue a camera so it takes us like 30 mintues to get a fucking picture and the whole time i'm posing a half hug on him so i'm basically snuggling win for the last half of my dream lol. then the very end was me posting all my amazing shit on facebook llolll. every dream i meet someone the end of it i post pics on facebook, so it feels even MORE real,so I'm even MORE pissed off when it was a dream -__-



then my cat woke me up at 8 by petting my foot when i was suppsoed to be awake at 7 and i run to school and get there on time.  8)

Some of you probably already saw this but I for one have only seen it on Vevo where it cut out the part where they mess up.

Gotta admit the mess up really made them much better, when htey re-started it they had much more power behind it.
Ah such a perfectionist band i love it.

I went to the Cardiff gig on Thursday night. It was by far the best gig of my life! They really have a way of connecting with the crowd I just don't feel with other bands. It was also interesting that they changed the set list around quite a bit and didn't play Wake Up last (they played Tunnels last).
I can't wait to hear what they were like in Manchester!

There's a little bit off the front of the stage, about 18 inches below the level of the stage, that Win jumped down onto a few times, especially during we used to wait.

Unfortunately, he misjudged it the first time and smacked his leg on the edge of the stage. Cue crowd reaction of mixture of laughter and "OMG is he okay"?

Just by chance, I was videoing at that time, I'll upload it in a bit. Just doing photos first. :)

I don't know how you do it, you always get first row!

It's the willingness to queue up early, as well as being happy to talk to random people around me - I spent the afternoon/gig getting to know these two lads there and we looked out for each other, kept each others places. It also helps that a lot of the gigs I go to I'm with other people I know and so we do the same.

yeah, damn immigants.

Apparently someone from the management has been asking people from the AF forum (the AF equivelent of Lala, if you want) at shows to move off the barrier and let new people on there because "it's what the band wants".

If that is the case, it's pretty horrible and really lessens my love for the band considerably.  :'(

I sort of understand though... I mean, having the same people in the front row at every show has to be weird. I know I'd be to embarrassed to do that. Like, I'm already embarrassed of the fact that I'm following MGMT around Spain and it's only gonna be two shows lol

So how do they do that? If they see them at the barrier they ask them to move?

Plus imagine being the band, seeing this group of obsessed passionate fans lining the front row every show. And all the annoyed 2nd row-ers right behind who probably get to see them only this once.

lol but lala is just one person and if she decides to queue since noon for the show then she very well deserves the spot at the barrier. If you want front row, get there earlier. It's as simple as that.

Post by: Jteeman on December 12, 2010, 04:39:23 PM
The tickets don't say "general admission, but only to certain places if you have been before".

If someone spends hundreds of pounds following a band, and spends hours in the cold waiting to try and get a good spot (there's never a guarantee of it happening), they deserve it. If other people want to get to the front, take the punishment that comes with freezing your arse off waiting for it.

Bear in mind as well that most barriers are a minimum of 30-40 people along them (depending on the venue) and the people being picked on are a maximum of maybe 10 people. It's hardly like they are preventing other people being there.

There's no justification for asking them to move. There just isn't. What next, telling people they can't stand near the front because they are bald, or because they are fat? It's ludicrous.

I've queued for hours to get my spots and I've never once "stolen" front row at general admission.  If some 16 year old fangirl comes in a half hour before the doors open and thinks she's gonna shove her way past me so she can scream, I love you Andrew, that little bitch has another thing coming.  Shra wasn't able to queue and got there late and Sizzle, Abby and I got her right in front of us because it was her first show and she's small.  I can afuckingssure you that MGMT has had no problem with me being up front at the miniscule fraction of shows that they've done that I've attended.  I can also assure you that when James hugged me and thanked me for all I do for them that he never once mentioned that he didn't want me up front at shows.  So fuck off.

Thanks Sizz for the heads up.

I think we're rather getting side-tracked here. The point is that if you ask one person to move from the front, whoever it is, whatever they have done to get there, you open the door to doing the same to anyone. It's a slippery slope.
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: Ninko on December 12, 2010, 05:45:14 PM
I don't think any band would ever consider being as stupid as to tell the fans to give up their front row spots, and I don't think they mind seeing any of them more than once. On the contrary. I would also never swap places with someone who's there to scream and whose interest in the band's music is fleeting and it doesn't get beyond the obvious hits.

Exactly.

If I buy tickets to 10 consecutive shows with my hard earned money and queue for hours in the cold December, I think I earned my spot at the barrier.

I've been watching this whole thing unfold in their official forum and apparently yes, it has happened before. They are trying to get pitchfork on it to get the band's attention and maybe some sort of clarification.


It's not looking pretty though. People are really upset about it.

It's not like they just walk in last minute and get front row or push and stomp people to get there.  They queue for hours ahead of time so it's justified. First come...first served.

I hope it gets sorted out and it's some sort of misunderstanding....it makes me think of The Big Pink guy at Lolla-remember him?   He was painted pink and wearing all pink and he was like 6.4?  He was up front with us and when The Big Pink came on stage, they smiled and waved at him-they obviously "knew" him.  I'll add that they seemed pleased to see him  :D

Honestly, everyone I know who likes them has different favourite songs. If you like Keep The Car Running and want stuff similar to that, I'd recommend No Cars Go, Rebellion (Lies), Neighbourhood #3 (Power Out) and Intervention. But they have so much more to offer - compare those songs to something like Haiti or Crown of Love and they are as dissimilar as two very dissimilar things.

See, my problem is I've never been to a concert of any kind whatsoever, so I'm not getting it, and they don't like it.

It's more that you are seeming to/are defending something that is frankly just wrong.

Post by: Jteeman on December 13, 2010, 06:33:27 PM
Worrying how quickly people can understand me.

You're being scolded because you keep defending someone who was being rude, crude, crass and cruel and  who expressly said they were doing it because the band wanted them to. People are mad, and I know I would be considerably more furious if this happened to someone I knew or to me.

I'm still very angry regardless. If something is wrong, it should be protested, whether it directly impacts you or not. To paraphrase Edmund Burke, if you don't protest when wrong-doings happen, that's all it takes for evil to win.
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: amoth14 on December 13, 2010, 06:40:37 PM
And you're not understanding me.
I'm not defending the management in any way, shape, or form. I'm saying I'm not tearing down my posters and burning my records until I find out the whole story, mainly because a huge chunk of my life revolves around Arcade Fire, and I'm not going to jump to conclusions yet. Maybe I am defending the band a bit, but's it because I feel deep in my heart that they really had nothing to do with this, their management misinterpreted something along the way. Something doesn't add up. That's all.

Also, I shouldn't be 'scolded' to begin with, just because I have a slightly differing opinion.

Well I can't speak for the rest of the forum but I'm not a hater. :):

"I'd be mad if Lala stole the 1st row spot every time I went to an MGMT concert, just to put it in perspective. Plus imagine being the band, seeing this group of obsessed passionate fans lining the front row every show. And all the annoyed 2nd row-ers right behind who probably get to see them only this once."

@jtee...it seems so unreasonable and unbelievable that I think that amoth14's "Innocent until proven guilty" is a good way to go.  If proven true, then outrage is absolutely called for.

Post by: pinksavannah on December 14, 2010, 09:31:35 PM
I don't want to comment on the whole Arcade/Barrier incident, since I met the people and I've said my peace on the actual UKK forum but I will say that I find it truly hard to believe it came from the band themselves, I don't know. More of my thoughts are there for those who are actual members. But I do want to go positive now and do want to say that the last two weeks have truly been the best of my life. I've had the most amazing time and every single gig was mind blowingly amazing, every one was special for different reasons. I got fucking Cage several times (!!!), Crown of Love, Deep Blue, the debut of Wasted Hours, Rococo and truly went mental every single time I saw Laika. Ahh! And lets not even mention the magic that is Wake Up with 20k people at the O2 venue and humming the song while waiting for the tubes/subway. More than the actual shows, I got to meet SO many amazing people and I managed to get front row at every single gig. After a show I also got to meet Will, Sarah, Jeremy, Tim and Richard and they were all so fucking awesome. I also saw Tim again on the last night and he remembered me coming from NC.  :D Will actually chatted and laughed about my helmets jokes, Richard called me dude which makes me feel tingly and Jeremy expressed "Holy Shit!" when I told them I came to follow the tour which I think I might declare on my tombstone. <3 Got photos with them as well that make me so freakin happy.

I truly can't express how happy (and now depressed) I am thanks to this trip. I'm already going to start saving and hope I can do another Suburbs tour run next Spring when they hopefully announce new dates. Arcade Fire is truly the live experience that I don't think I can ever top, which is quite saddening for me since it will be severely depressing when they stop touring for a while - or when I just go to another gig in general. It definitely won't live up to anything now. Experiencing this band with my best friend, in awesome (and sometimes shitty - looking at you Birmingham) cities, has been the biggest highlight ever. I've not slept properly in 2 weeks, have bruises covering half of my body, am now sick and have lost my voice and I would do it all again tomorrow if given the chance. It was incredible! Must stop crying! I urge all of you to see AF at least once, or just follow your favorite band of your choice if you have the chance. It was such a fun experience!

Jtee it was nice to meet you in line! I overheard your White Stripes convo btw and kind of felt your pain since I want to see them live so bad  :( Any MGMT, AF & TWS is pretty damn cool in my book :) I actually ran into a few more MGMT fans in Manchester and then Glasgow which is ironic since I was just explaining to my friend how at home there are like zero fans of both bands I've met in day to day life. Either totally hate one or the other. I was a happy fangirl to gush over my bands needless to say  ;)

And now I must resume fucking reality again. Life sucks.  >:( :'(

Well reading that just made my night, oh my god. pinksavannah you are totally rad! I need a time where I'm off for at least 2 weeks and MGMT is touring ALL OVER Florida so I can get that experience!!!!

But that's my fantasy... I understand your post-concert depression (I get it every time!) but hey you have a wild-eyed girl right here who'd love to experience anything similar, it's pretty amazing you got to do this :D
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: pinksavannah on December 15, 2010, 01:01:16 AM
@AbbysRoad It truly can't be expressed into words. Obviously the music means so much to me, but the overall experience of being with my bestie who I only see once a year, meeting so many people, actually having a blast waiting in line, "front row families" and my tendency to truly freak out the security guards is something I'll cherish forever.

@andrewsexra  I heard My Body is a Cage three fucking times! This time last year, NEVER would I thought I'd hear it. But three times - absolutely amazing! It's remarkable live! I really loved shouting the 'new' Will background vocals to the top of my lungs.

Speaking of shouting, all the non album bits are some of my funnest memories to sing "Shocked, Shocked, Shocked, Shocked!" on MOM, the screams on MOM etc. It is SO fun! It's amazing how much better they sound live. A song like MOM is a monster live. I hope it won't ever be taken from the new setlists. It works so well with Power Out/Rebellion and Ahhhh and all the "seal of approval" looks we got from Win on almost every Power Out session was epic. Ahhhhh every time we would get a smile or pleased look from a band member was so amazing! On one night Tim bowed back to us, Richard pointed to my friend's hair and made glasses on his eyes to me and other times Marika and Sarah smiled so much. Regine curtsied to us on one night. Oh in Glasgow the guy who was in first in line we met caught Regine's tambourine which I was so happy about (I am really not bitter I didn't get it since I never want to fight for it after reading someone's hands were ripped apart once) but I did get to touch it and take a photo with.  ;D

I feel so lucky. I wish I could have seen more dates, and was able not to skip Dublin but I'm pretty pleased and really I can't complain. It was amazing! I hope that there will be another European/UK tour in the Summer that I can attend again next year before they sign off for a while. Fuck, I can't even begin to imagine that depression O_o. Definitely will do this if there is enough cities!

I promise you all if you do something similar you would not regret it! DO IT!  :P

Hey, life doesn't suck! You had the opportunity to do all of this! I know in a couple of days you'll already feel better. Anyone, who's ever seen his favorite bands has experienced post show depression,  but in a true Christmas spirit, we should all be really happy for having this kind of life!
I went to see AF when they were in Germany and it was amazing! The setlist was awesome - 18 songs with  all the Neighborhoods,  Haiti, Sprawl II and  My Body Is A Cage (managed to film it).
Hope you feel better soon.

^ Yeah I know. Just post-show depression is the worst as well all now and this is definitely the worst I've experienced! But I'm so beyond happy I got to do all of this, even being sick is okay! I must make a tour happen next year too. Hoping for a ton of dates again! woot!

I met a girl who went to the German show too. She also said it was amazing! But there is never a bad AF show after all, heh.  ;D

To go with the caps lock: RICHARD REED PARRY AND OR TIM KINGSBURY INFECTED ME WITH THE FLU. That is awesome. Yeah, they were both sick when we met them so I'm blaming my cold on AF members.  :D

My story with Arcade Fire... when I was like 8 or whenever Funeral came out, my family loved Rebellion, we listened to it all the time, I never even paid much attention to the band or even the band name till a couple years ago, I got really into them, Suburbs came out, fell in love :D

there was a guy front row who was next to me at the altanta show, and i remember when i saw him i thought "he looks homeless" and on the video i think he's wearing the same thing he wore to my concert...

an arcade fire dead head, what would you call that...

I'm sort of on a downer from them at the moment - I guess that, given that from July to December last year I was so "up" for everything about them, it's just my natural equilibrium re-asserting itself. Will take me a couple of months before I can really get properly excited for them again, although I don't expect to see them back our way any time soon, sadly.

Why would that prevent you from getting GA though? All it will stop is being able to be right on the barrier, and even that is possible with a bit of effort.

I loathe being seated at gigs, unless absolutely impossible to avoid. You just lose some of the atmosphere.

Nobody usually sits in the seated areas anyways.  I don't know guys.  I JUST DON'T KNOW! 

Do you all think I should do GA anyways?

Do you all think I should do GA anyways?

For me, the flaws of seating are 1) you are usually further aware from the stage than you could be if standing (especially if it is a theatre type venue) or 2) you are at an odd angle (if it is a stadium/arena).

Benefits of seating are, if you are short and can't get a decent view because of that, tends not to matter so much if you have a seat. Also, if you suffer from back troubles etc, having a seat obviously provides relief. And GA will always be a bit rougher down the front etc.

Obviously, entirely up to you, but unless you have a dislike of crowds, I just don't see the benefit of deliberately going for seats rather than GA. But that's just me.
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: Hunter Clark on January 20, 2011, 08:26:59 PM
I'd go GA... Whether you're in the front or backl I think you'd have more fun. You can move around and dance. But, if not seeing great is a problem, maybe seats, idk. Your call.

Abby if you have to get seats I'd sit with you. The last GA concert I went to I was all the way in the back and being a midge I couldn't see a thing and it was miserable. The only good spot for me in GA is right up front and I probably won't be able to get there that early.

Well, I've not run out of money as such, but I don't really want to spend another £50+ on gig tickets this month if I can. I'd have probably held off buying Band of Horses and Kyuss if I'd known about this.

I'm happy it's worked out for everyone getting tickets!  I have seen Arcade Fire seated and in general admission and they both have their positives but I guess it all depends HOW you want to enjoy the show.  Seated was nice because you could really take it all in and enjoy it comfortably and not miss anything.  However, being in the crowd you really get to be in the middle of it all which really gives the entire show a different feel.  I always feel more a part of things when I am in the middle of it all and nothing beats that.  So I went with GA this time, although I doubt I am even going to try and get up front.  I was in the 5th row or so at Lollapalooza so that will tide me over for a few years.  I know it's just about preference but I was reading all the discussion and thought I would weigh in.  Regardless, like I said, I love all the love for them here ;D

Exactly.  Yeah I decided that I was going to go for it after MGMT ended.  So I made my way to the front only to have to wait almost an hour and a half before Arcade Fire even started.  It seemed like nobody had water except me and I had several spray bottles so I kept everyone cool and hydrated around me.  It was almost unbearable at times but I am glad I did it.  Seeing MGMT and Arcade Fire back to back up that close was pretty amazing.  Oh and Sana says hello  ;)

Tickets for Hyde Park still ain't sold out, which isn't that surprising, considering they are £60 each. Have to say that is probably £15 more than should have been.

Bono is pompous, Larry, Adam and Edge much less so. Besides, his pompousity is mainly around preaching about helping people in Africa etc. It's not that far removed from what Win et al do re Haiti. They are both overtly political/socialogical bands in terms of their music.

I'd love to see a joint U2/AF show. It'd be stunning. U2 shows are visually brilliant, if nothing else, and they have a cracking back catalogue to go through. And obviously don't need to discuss AF's talent here.

AWww, I love U2.  Their older stuff, obviously, but I grew up listening to them and they're definitely one of those bands who can calm me down since they remind me of home and simpler times.  Bono's gone a bit holier than thou, but still good music.

Still trying to figure out if I should go two nights in a row or not.

The Chicago gigs make me sick to my stomach. AF and The National :( I couldn't justify going out for one show back when the first went on sale, and then day 2 announced and I was gutted. But now three days. Seriously? I could cry. WHY Chicago of all places?! No offense Chicago people, But I'm green with envy! You know, other cities exist too :P heh!

But I swiped my ticket to the Hyde Park show last week and all plans are in motion to see a few gigs in Europe again this summer so I'm focusing on that. Three set for sure, yaysies!

Haha, well I'll be returning in late June. :P For me, following in Europe is much more rewarding than stateside. Since I get to see friend and obviously not being at the gigs alone is so much better. But financially, once the initial plane trip is out of the way, the costs are about the same - I actually saw double AF gigs in the UK than the price of seeing the three Southern MGMT gigs for example.

What shows are you seeing in Europe?

So far I have decided Hyde Park in London and the two Italy shows. I'm trying to go to the non fest shows. (Even though Hyde Park will basically be like a festival I know). But since they keep announcing day by day, it makes for planning a bit difficult! But hopefully another.

Mother Nature loves Chicago too  ;)  I still need to educate myself on The National.

I am a new fan of them. Got into them in late December and fell completely in love with the High Violet album. It is so good. Gradually getting deeper into their discography and Boxer is amazing as well! They have quickly become one of my very favorites needless to say.

I'm not sure that he'll be up for barrier and I'd feel pretty bad just abandoning him. We'll probably end up just off it anyway, if prior gig going is any experience. Besides it's a midweek date and I need all my holiday for trip to New Zealand the week after, so I couldn't queue for the same time as, say, I did in Dec.

Ah k, I see. Well if you can't start queuing early anyways, it's probably best you just take the gig easy and enjoy it by getting tipsy. Just don't be that drunk guy  ;D

And I'd so abandon my friends... am I awful? :P I just can't imagine being any further than the first few rows now. I'm actually really worried about the Hyde Park show since It's my first time seeing them again after several months. I suppose if it does end up happening (likely due to the VIP seats) I'll get a different experience... but I don't want a different experience. heh!

I suspect we'll end up there anyway. If there were more of us going, I'd abandon him, but not if there's just two of us.

Anyway, I might be doing him a disservice - he might want to be down there as well!

If you are willing to get there early enough, I'd have thought you would still be able to get on the barrier. My understanding of the VIP things is that they are off to one side, not a golden circle, though I could be wrong.

Yeah so I've read most seem to be off to the side, but knowing my luck it will be something different this year causing me to be way back. But I'll definitely go and wait much earlier again. Don't know how the gig being the summer will affect the turnout. You guys over there were so relaxed about queuing, where as here you'd have to camp - eh!

Apparently there is going to be BMX riders circling them at the Grammys (unless they ended up ditching the idea)... so should be interesting to say the least.

So glad it will be MOM. Wanted something more visceral and in your face and that song is definitely that live. Just glad its not Sprawl II though - love the song, but not for such a mainstream performance.

I saw them last night at the secret show thing they did in LA, it was at the Ukrainian Cultural Center on Melrose in Hollywood, crazy, right? Still can't believe I waited like 6 hours for tickets and got sunburned, but it was SO worth it. I was right at the front on the barrier and got to touch Wil's hand when he came down into the crowd, and Regine when she came over to the fans at the end. It was a lovely lovely show, it was so alive, just wow. I can't wait to see them at Coachella again, with 80,000 people because last night it was only with like 500! I even got a setlist :).

It's a thursday so would have expected it to be not too bad, but then the size of the place means that it could be busy queuing. I guess the weather will play a big part in the queue size - a bit of rain and a lot of people will be put off.

Anna Kendrick is a fucking hypocrite for telling people they shouldn't have taken so many pictures and enjoyed the show more. Yeah, especially since you didn't have to move a finger to get a ticket whereas the normal folk had to wait in line for hours! I'd take freaking pictures too had I waited in line for freaking centuries and got my hands on one of the very few tickets available.

No but she posted on twitter that people shouldn't have been taking so many pictures and ~enjoyed the show more. STFU when you queue for 15 hours with everyone else then you can maybe complain about people taking pics the whole time.

i used to be really bad about taking pics then i realized i was seeing the show through a camera.

when really like unusual stuff happens i'll take out my camera, for a moment i want to cpature, but otherwise it stays put away.
doesn't really affect me if others are doing it, but i don't like to

I see her point though.  She was probably referring to those people who have their camera glued to their hand the whole time and only see the action through the little view finder.  Video can't capture what it feels like to be at a concert.  I know I've learned my lesson.  Take a few and then put it away.

Yes, I totally agree with that and I'm like that too. I'm just saying that if those people queued the whole night to spend the entire concert taking pics and vids, well that's their choice and she should stfu cause I'm certain she didn't even have to move a finger to get a ticket just because she's famous.
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: Jteeman on February 13, 2011, 12:55:43 PM
She's still allowed to express her opinion that those people couldn't have enjoyed the show as much when they are so focused on taking pics.

I can kinda see her point - I used to take way more pics than I do - these days I tend to pick maybe 3 or 4 songs during a set to take pics and then put the camera away the rest of the time, so that I can enjoy the show more. It's difficult to do both.
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: Purplebash on February 13, 2011, 04:00:20 PM
Well naturally I see her point but I get was Sizzle was saying, it was sorta hypocritical in a way.

But like at the MGMT show I saw, it was really aggravating how it seemed the entire crowd wasn't watching the show, they were capturing it for all of YouTube to see instead. I was like... what a waste... but still the way technology is so easily available for us now I wouldn't pass up snapping a few too many shots of Arcade Fire, either xD

Post by: Mudkim on February 14, 2011, 08:52:40 AM
yeah..they usually pick the album that's going to sell the most or has sold the most which is why AF even nominated was a huge curve ball. it's like they're starting to care

ahaha this is the last one promise

The Suburbs was a highly selling album and still is...it was #1 for months and I believe is still in the top ten...so not really a curve ball that it was nominated.

^Exactly

Being a former member of the academy(nonvoting) all these comments people are making about the votes being rigged and shit is kind of offensive. I guess they don't realize who the people are that do the voting. :-\

I didn't think it was odd for them to be nominated but I was sooo shocked when they won! I really did not expect it! I've never been SO happy for an award before! My insides were like bursting and I'm sure my mom thought I was annoying because I couldn't stop saying "OH MY GOSH! YES!!! OH MY GOSH" hahah. They REALLY deserve it!

It's all the more laughable that some people actually think those things, because AF are far from unknown these days.

Sure, if they had won it for Funeral back in the day it would be have been a "shock" (not undeserved, but unusual) but they are a massive band these days - you don't get to headline famous festivals, have your own show in Hyde Park or get Terry Gilliam to direct a show of yours from MSG if you are unknown.

All those people expressing "surprise" are just showing they don't know anything about music.

In the last three days, I have truly had an insane Arcade Fire rush, hence seeing them front row at their secret show in LA on Friday, and now they win the very well deserved grammy. Very proud of them, such an excellent band, really love everything they do, The Suburbs is excellent, but Funeral and Neon Bible are equally just as epic.
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: Rebs on February 15, 2011, 03:40:51 AM
I watched the Grammys more so to laugh and talk shit. Back when the nominations were announced, all I thought was okay cool they got some recognition they deserved. I never for a split second thought they would be taken this seriously. I don't even know how the process goes, but much respect for finally getting it right in my time. It's so hypocritical for me to have gotten excited, but I'm not going to lie, I DID. When Jason Segel came out and dissed LAdy Gaga and presented his favorite band, I clapped loud and my friend and his girlfriend who listen to the likes of Nicki Minaj and Rhianna, looked at me like, "Who?" They were confused it was great. They got up and stopped watching. Next was the awards and I openly told them I was only watching this shit just for AF and that they had not a chance in hell at winning. When Barbara Streisand opened the envelope and said, The Suuuuu----

That moment. Oh...my...god.

It's probably extremely silly to act like I did. I probably was over emotional. No fuck that. I don't care. When she said, "The Suuuu----" my jaw dropped, I got off the couch and into a squatting position with my hands out like I was carrying a log or something and started scream, "Ooooooooooooooh....." Then she spat it out. I freaked the fuck out. I jumped up screaming "Oh my god!" I couldn't think of anything else to say. I just kept screaming it out. "Oh my god! Oh my god!" Mind you it was 11:33pm on a Sunday night in an apartment. People got upset. But I will remember this moment for the rest of my life. Better than any Superbowl championship the San Diego Chargers could give me and if you knew me that is saying a lot. Because I cry when the Chargers lose in the playoffs. But man, I can't express how fucking happy I am for them. Just truly, genuinely happy. And what made it better was everyone on my facebook posting "Huh?"


And lastly, what amazing performances by them. Did anyone else notice that was the one and only Matt motherfucking Hoffman???? What an amazing night Sunday was.
Title: Re: ARCADE FIRE.
Post by: andrewsexra on February 15, 2011, 07:31:35 AM
:) it really, to me, was just a defining moment in the musical world and it just...

it means a lot to the whole of "good music"-the music we all love, the music "our kind" listen to that not everyone listens to, but dammit, we love it and we don't care-that this won.
it's just...so nice for something of substance to win a grammy. and for people who aren't so jaded to win it!

everyone always says oh arcade fire are douchebags ablabhaba...they were so happy and genuine winning that award, an awward which if eminem had won it would've gone like " -___- yeah thanks k bye"

it's just. it means a lot that i was able to "be a part" of that.

"They're indie but by no means small" Yes!!! The first half of that song was pissing me off but I didn't realize he was gonna be all awesome at the end xD Because I get the joke of the first half or so, but the whole idea of that annoys me. How everyone is all "Why did they win? No one knows who they are!" First of all they're pretty damn huge, secondly who cares?

Talking to my dad this morning about the Grammys he made a good point, that while we're extremely excited and proud and happy for Arcade Fire for this accomplishment, the fact that all these people were asking about it means they're gonna get to Googlin' them and furthermore like them and bam, another band I like that I've lost having in common with people who actually like music.

Post by: Purplebash on February 15, 2011, 07:07:06 PM
Valid point. I think that's a little different though. Just as Zac Brown Band stole MGMT's award won Best New Artist over some other more well-known people, that Esperanza chick won in the same category and everything, and over Bieber. No one is looking her up, no one really cares. The only news I've heard from that is that people just wonder why she won, not enough to learn more about her. Best new album? Arcade Fire won the biggest award they offer and over the largest pop stars of the year.

If they were to come to where I live, they're definitely playing the arena now, let's just put it that way. Before they would have played a big venue, yes, but not an arena.

In other places they already were an arena band but to say you're a Jacksonville, Florida arena band is  big xD

Guize..I feel an obsession coming on.  I bought The Suburbs album a few weeks ago (I know! I know! Im always behind on getting into awesome music!) and fell in love. Ive had it on repeat ever since. Then they won the album of the year at the Grammys and I just felt incredibly satisfied that such a prestigious award went to such a deserving band. Then last night I watched their concert that was posted on Youtube and it just exceeded my expectations and I literally can't stop thinking about it. They're brilliant...but you all know that Im sure.  :D  ;)

headlining the new orleans jazz fest and i have two finals that day (the lat day we can even have finals, go figure)

i'm like trying to see if i could take them early...
ccos im just that stupid.
yeah anyways, it would involve an 8 and 1/2 hour drive which idk who will go with me since all my friends would be taking finals....and my parents wouldn't let me go alone.


and then again they are performing in memphis but memphis is the same distance but it's on a thursday before my finals so that's like review classes i can't miss.

but i'm really tempted to go to the jazz fest :(
someone explain to me why i was born so late, i should be at least 20 by now dear god this age restriction thing is getting ridiculous.
and don't say i'm wishing my youth away because i'm not. my youth is gone i'm just wanting to move past that, i want to get on with my life and my life will be concerts.

One of the best things about the UK is the fact that the oldest that 99.9% of gigs and the like require you to be is 18 and even that isn't used for about 50% of shows. Which is handy for younger fans.

yeah anyways, it would involve an 8 and 1/2 hour drive which idk who will go with me since all my friends would be taking finals....and my parents wouldn't let me go alone.


and then again they are performing in memphis but memphis is the same distance but it's on a thursday before my finals so that's like review classes i can't miss.

but i'm really tempted to go to the jazz fest :(
someone explain to me why i was born so late, i should be at least 20 by now dear god this age restriction thing is getting ridiculous.
and don't say i'm wishing my youth away because i'm not. my youth is gone i'm just wanting to move past that, i want to get on with my life and my life will be concerts.

Exactly which gigs are you going to? I know you have mentioned a few of the fests (bonnaroo, coachella etc). If you are trying to see a bunch of shows maybe you should pick some that are close together and drive back-to-back. Plus if you saw the solo shows, I don't think you'll have to worry about the age restrictions. Unless you just like the other artists on the fests and thus why you are wanting to mostly do them.

One of the best things about the UK is the fact that the oldest that 99.9% of gigs and the like require you to be is 18 and even that isn't used for about 50% of shows. Which is handy for younger fans.
i mean...i'm 17 anyways

Am I the only one that apart from being a flawless human being thought Win was kidding about the new album? They're probably recording some new tracks/versions for the re-release of The Suburbs.

In that video he looks as hot as he does live. I remember being surprised by how much hotter and younger he looked one meter away.

They're releasing something in May, I think it's a live EP.

And now onto something really creepy I noticed. This was recorded before the Grammys cause Win's shaved hair looks a lot longer than it was last week and I know he shaved it before the Grammys.

Bad times.

Although, in better news, I've just found a recording of the show I saw back in December. I appreciate that I'm likely to be the only one pleased with that news but still. Yay.

Arcade Fire are planning to release a deluxe version of their Grammy Award-winning album The Suburbs, set to include an additional two tracks, according to BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe.

In addition to the two new tracks, “Speaking in Tongues” and “Culture War,” the deluxe re-release will include a DVD containing the Spike Jonze-directed short film Scenes from the Suburbs and a making-of documentary. The deluxe version is set to release on June 27, with both songs premiering on Radio 1 on May 23, according to Lowe.

i always go to shows alone..my dad goes with me but we don't stay together for the show
is that weird or something?
idk i make friends there cos if i brought a friend they wouldn't be nearly as into it and that's just frustrating to be next to someone who isn't as in to it as u are. when u go alone everyone is there for the same reason u are and if u are at the front especially you meet the real fans

one time i went with a friend and we had to leave so i didn't get to meet the kooks -__-

It's best to go alone or with someone who is really into otherwise it's distracting to have someone there with you who's obviously not enjoying it as much as you...

By the way, today's show will be webcast in this site http://wxrt.radio.com/Arcadefire

BAAAAAAAH GUYS!  Night 2 was nothing short of amazing!  Different order, some song switches, and they ended with Sprawl II instead of Wake Up.

My mom is in love with them now.  She thinks Regine is adorable, and we were incredibly impressed by little Butler's dance moves and overall shenanigans.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!

The whole song still sends goosebumps down my spine, every single time I hear it, whether it's one I was there for myself or one thousands of miles away. I can't explain how awesome it makes me feel.

But I was to pick one moment in the song that really gets me each time, it's the bit around "million little gods" and just afterwards that gets me the most.

I totally agree with the annoyance factor on how Neon Bible was advertised as if it didn't even exist. However I love The Suburbs. I think Funeral is still my favorite though...

Dearie, if I actually thought your sole interest in the band was Edwin's looks I'd have been considerably more scathing in my opinions than I have been...

I stand by my opinions. All of them.

also, leave my arse alone. It's fine as it is.  :-[

Speaking of standing by my opinions...I maintain that The Suburbs is the most complete album of the 3, but doesn't have the respective highs and lows of the other two.

Sweet Jesus, the man is perfect.


Wore my Arcade Fire t-shirt today and my students were all very jealous that I got to see them twice this past weekend.  Then I drove home with the top down listening to The Suburbs as I drove through the suburbs.

Holy Win spam first of all...  :P

I need to get me a new t-shirt in August. My current one is falling apart.


Usually band tees hold up for a while. How long have you had it? Or do you just wear it profusely haha!
Just bought my first shirt in Memphis, been putting it off for one reason or another. Got the US tour one because I love the date arrangements on the back. Think its weird Bonnaroo isn't listed though.

Speaking of Memphis, show was amazing, Win held my hand for balance on We Used to Wait and took a dude's crutch from the crowd which was funny, Will banged, busted and ripped pieces of his drum causing himself to bleed, Regine laughed and smiled at me and my cousin beating the shit out of one another throughout Laika and... I heard this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LzOI-cYiGF8  ;D <3

The crowd in Tennessee was so disappointing though. Never in my 8 shows had I seen so few people have their hands up on Wake Up. It was a shame :( I also hate I didn't plan out the Beale St. Fest since it was the next day, but money and all prevented both from happening.

It was my cousin's first time seeing them which she called surreal since I have basically raped her mind with them for ages now and she was actually seeing them. She thought they were amazing, but even she felt the lacluster energy from the audience and she's only seen videos. It was disappointing she didn't get the full 'experience' at her show but I think it goes to show what an amazing band they are that she was still in shock over how good they were, sans crowd participation. Its weird because I saw the Georgia show last year and while the energy was WAY awesome, it still doesn't even compare to the crowds in the UK at even the lowest energy show like Birmingham. Its interesting comparing the audiences though. Obviously its not all US shows if you read reviews, but probably a Southern thing. Either way, eeally makes me miss overseas shows  :(

3 years last month. It's getting a bit frayed around the edges, literally. Bit of wear and tear.

I think crowd energy is pot luck wherever you are really. I didn't think the Manchester show we both went to had quite the energy of the festival show I saw in the summer previous. And having been to watch MGMT a lot in Sept, the energy on the nights was totally different each time, even when in the same venue!

Memphis? How long did you have to wait for. I HAD to return my rental car immediately so I had no time to wait since it was a 9 1/2 hour drive for me but I kinda wanna know... but it might kill me. if it wasn't long.

Definitely is, the second night at the O2's energy was way more intense than the first night and it was same venue thing. But still, even the lowest level shows like Birmingham & Manchester, were the most lively out of ANY shows that I've seen in my nearby areas here. People don't let loose as much  :P

I read the pages about me
In her autobiography
They were brief and to the point
Our flesh while you are getting dressed
Memory that needs to be repressed
I'll just wait until it's over

Since you've gone away
I never know just what to say
Since you've gone away
I never know just what to say

Because I like cars more than telephones
Your voice in my ear makes me feel so alone
Tonight I'm going to drive
The silver moon is shining bright
Over the interstate
God saying, "Hurry, don't be late"
Soon the sun will rise
That's when the romance dies
And I'm just tired of running around

I walked
To get the mail today
I guess
Your letter never came
I'll just
Check again tomorrow

Our flesh while you are getting dressed
Memory that needs to be repressed
I'll just wait without saying a word

Since you've gone away
I never know just what to say
Since you've gone away
I never know just what to say

Because I like cars more than telephones
Your voice in my head makes me feel so alone
Tonight I'm going to drive
The silver moon is shining bright
Over the interstate
God saying, "Hurry, don't be late"
Soon the sun will rise
That's when the romance dies
And I'm just tired of running around

But fuck it, I love you no less
I'm going to feel like shit
By the time I get to you
Now the sky is turning blue
The stars, they disappear
One by one with daylight, dear
And yes, you're in my head
But that doesn't make you here
And I've lost all my friends
But you're the one I miss the most
And now I'm almost there
Yeah, I'm almost to the coast
And if I had any notion
Of how to drive my car across the Atlantic Ocean
I'd be fucking set   




I believe that Arcade Fire are more than musicians.

Ready to Start is a better opener though imo. Personal preference obv.

I'd say festival crowds can be variable in setting the mood more so than normal gig crowds are. Sometimes it works, sometimes it just doesn't so well.

I was listening to them most of the day yesterday..They just seemed perfect to listen to on a hot summer day.  :)

I seriously adore their EP. Ive had it for awhile now but that was the last one I bought. Im not sure how I originally overlooked it, but Im obsessed with it. Especially Woodlands National Anthem and Headlights Look Like Diamonds. Just beautiful

I still haven't slept properly. We waited for them after the show cause we had nowhere to go anyway and thought we'd give it a shot. Never in a million years did I think I'd ever talk to Win fucking Butler, omg I almost died. They were all really nice because when they arrived to the venue in the morning they saw us waiting but they didn't stop (~they were busy). People were really pissed that none of them stopped since we were just like 8 people in line at the time (I personally did not care cause I understand it's not their job to stop for the fans if they have to be somewhere) but they were extremely nice when they came out after the show.

Two days before me! I didn't think you were Dutch though, thought you were Spanish. Although I might just have imagined that.  :-\

If I could, I would be, but I'm in work. I might be able to jump out at about 4pm if I'm very nice to my boss in the meantime, but not guaranteed.

I tend to aim for about 5 hours before doors if I want to ensure decent barrier.

No probs Caitlyn! Yeah, I was on the faaaaar left hand side of the stage but on the barrier. Here is a shot I took of the screen above me and the stage in the distance without zoom. I feel like the camera makes it look farther away in this though...

Also, I CANNOT tell you enough that the burst mode on the camera is worth it alone. (That's how I got a series of photos of Regine twirling! Heee!)  I literally took over 5000 photos over the weekend and only selected around 250 to post...I don't know what that says about my photography skills but sometimes the action shots come out a bit blurry. It also has an auto assist focus.

here are a couple of crappy disposable pictures i took at the hyde park gig. since they had quite a few acts (mumford & sons, beirut, owen pallet) playing the set up inside was a bit more like a festival with all the attractions.

(http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6209/6038961083_656fdca8f0_z.jpg)
they had this tent with a free photobooth and arcade games.

and they had this tent with hourly showings of 'scenes from the suburbs'
(http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6130/6038979325_5930e668b1_z.jpg)
i tried to take some pictures of what it looked like inside with flash but they were almost completely black, i guess that's what i get for only having cheap/shitty cameras!

i don't know if i posted about it - it was a good gig, very fun but the sound could have been better, it was really hard to hear detail but i guess they had a noise/time curfew imposed by playing at hyde park (in month of may win even made comments about the 'rich neighbours'). most festival/outdoor music performances i've been to are usually more about singing along and having a good time rather than having great acoustics, a lot of the music just blurs into one sound. it was definitely fun though, not a personal criticism at all i just wish stuff like this had better sound.

No flash!! I would never use flash at a show! It's just rude!
I saw you Grouplove shots on FB by the way and they're way better than mine..I suppose that is one of the benefits of being front and center ;) I was actually irritated because there were bars on the side of the stage that the camera kept focusing on so some of my photos are effed because of it...

BUT to bring this back to AF..I went through more of my photos the other night and thought Id post these goodies...

I felt like a crazy person, the audience was so dull. It was basically me, a french dude screaming and the rest of our small crew that were into it. Win came to visit 3 times though so that was awesome.

Just lucky I guess. There were only about 30 people queuing when I got there, I was amazed. Because there are a few doors at this venue, we managed to sensibly position ourselves at the front of the queue for one of those.

Once they let us through those outer doors, they didn't let us onto the floor (the band were still sound checking I think from the sounds of it). So they got everyone to queue by the standing doors on the inside. Because there are 6 doors, i went to one of the ones slightly further from the main entrance, which meant I was first in that queue. all the queues opened onto the floor at the same time, then it was just a scramble to the barrier.

Eff yeah Ian! So excited for you! *high five*

I was excited for myself as well.  ;D

Win shouted at the people in the seats to stand up during Keep The Car Running. Which they did. Crowd was quietish, until they dropped Wake Up into the middle of the normal set and it was pretty loud from then on.

Hearing is fucked, as is my voice. I regret nothing.

Pretty much the usual:

Ready To Start
Keep The Car Running
Haiti
Sprawl II
No Cars Go
Rococo
Speaking In Tongues
Intervention
Suburban War
Wake Up
Laika
Tunnels
We Used to Wait
Power Out


Month of May
Rebellion
Suburbs

Was nice to hear Speaking In Tongues live.

Also, I'm just uploading my pics and, if I do say so myself, some of them are among the best band pics I've taken in AGES. Will upload the best and link the rest when there are on there.  :)

Cheers y'all.

Caitlyn - we didn't push past anyone. A bit of local knowledge about where to queue helped maximise our position. We would have still been on barrier even if everyone who was there when we arrived had got on first, we'd just possibly not been quite so central.

I don't like pushing past people when queuing, as I know i hate it happening to me. Do unto others and all that.

Yep, it is. I'd say there's a pretty slim chance they'll win either even if they do attend, considering the artists/bands they're up against. I have a feeling we're going to have a repeat of when Flash Delirium was nominated for a VMA and 30 Seconds to Mars won  ::)

I totally agree with the sentiment that MTV is utterly meaningless in terms of taste but I still want them to win. That's just how I am, I always want my favorite bands to win anything they'll up for even if the award is shit.

Arcade Fire are participating in Neil Young's benefit concert for physically impaired children. Youtube will have a live broadcast of The Bridge School Benefit today starting at 4:30 p.m. PT/7:30 p.m. ET. I have no idea when AF set will air so it's best to check in with the site from time to time to make sure you don't miss it.  ;D

I wish I knew about it earlier so I would've given more notice and you could've watched it Sizzle  :(

Their set ended about half an hour ago and they were soo good. Some things I noticed: Win's hair is growning out, and swooned a little I saw him.  ::)  Even though their set was acoustic (a requirement of playing the concert) they still rock harder then many bands while playing electric, Win even apologized at one point if they were playing too loud and said that they can't help playing loud.  :D

Setlist:
The Suburbs
Empty Room
Month of May
Rebellion (Lies)
Intervention
a song I don't know with a guest appearance by Neil Young
Wake Up

Oh, and Régine guested during Eddie Vedder's set for one song. I'm bummed that they didn't play longer. I would have loved to hear Sprawl II, Haiti, No Cars Go, Ready to Start, Half Light I, Antichrist Television Blues, Laika, another song or two from Neon Bible (besides the couple I just mentioned), or just about anything else they would've played given the extra time, I'm not very picky.

Heh, I know half the people on the front row of that.  :P

They played it only at a few shows, a couple of times in Brighton for the Radio 1 special that this video is taken from, and then some of the UK arena shows in 07 i think. I've got a couple of recordings of it lying around somewhere.

As much as I love the Foos, it's not a patch on the original.

You would know half of them!  You are the ultimate concert goer.

Nah, it's just because I know just a few "big" Foo fans from places, the equivalent in terms of getting to their shows of, say, Lala for MGMT.

Are Win and Regine having a baby maybe?

This is obviously speculation on my part, but it would be very unusual for ANY band to release an album without some kind of promotion. It's nigh on commericial suicide, even for an "indie" minded band like AF.

If they aren't playing to tour before 2014, I'd be surprised if they released an album before the spring.

im almost sure the strokes did the same thing, they didnt tour angles...? or did they i dont know. either way, a baby seems like a likely and beautiul reason to delay touring!

According to Le Journal de Montreal, Arcade Fire’s Régine Chassagne gave birth to her first child, a son, with husband Win Butler on Sunday, April 21st. A family pastor reported the news, adding that the baby weighed seven pounds at birth.

do you guys like their new 8 minute song Reflektor?

I looooove it!!!!

disco influenced, David Bowie lends his voice, James  murphey produced. I think the Fire might have made their first dance influenced record

at first listen it was a little too disco-y for me, but its pretty catchy and I've warmed up to it. It could be about 3 minutes shorter though. Also not a fan of the video. But I'm super excited for the new album and tour.

I bet there will be a shorter radio version, which would be good. Its a good album length, but a little too long. I's super catchy, and I LOVVVE the double vocals they have going on, maybe their best use of it yet?? I am so excited for the album. It's going to be a double album with two distinct sides. I also cant wait to see them cuz ive never seen them live yet :(

Radiohead are better, in my opinion. I don't think I've ever seen a better live band than Radiohead.
