i still wish their was a great quality recording of this.. who knows maybe the fanzine email was to hint at something along the lines of this!

There is a recording, however I'm not sure that they would share it as it was billed as a one time event.  The music is exquisite (I listen to it on the beach when I'm there <3) but it was only a part of the experience.  It stands alone to an extent, but the lights and of course the art installation where such a big part of it.  The DVD could only show so much of the experience :(
things like this makes me wish i was here during the circa :(

Nick and Polina Buckley

By now you've all read the heartbreaking news that friend of the band, Nick Alexander was one of the victims at Le Bataclan.  Nick worked Merch for MGMT and was doing the same for EODM on Friday night in Paris.  A memorial account has been set up. https://www.gofundme.com/y7aaknp8

A message from the fund's creator Miguel Benavides can be read below...
--
Nick Alexander Memorial Fund
About this fund: My initial goal for this find was to benefit my friend in the most direct way that was calling to me. I personally want to help his family. Two things happened: we reached a significant amount quickly, and our extended tour family pointed out a basic rule of the road: we take care of our own, even the ones we don't personally know. Taking this to heart, we are converting this fund to taking care of more than just Nick.
My role: I am in Los Angeles, CA. I started this because, after 24 hours, I noticed that no one else had, and I wanted to do something that felt productive and positive. I have already spoken with an entertainment attorney who many of you know, and we have already spoken to tax counsel about the best way to set up this fund. It's a weekend, so we will get more info on this as the week progresses.
If this isn't the right time for you to make a donation - please know we hear you, we understand.
Today or tonight raise a glass to the memory of Nick Alexander a guy doing a simple job of touring with a band and selling t-shirts going new places and making new friends. Last night, he ended his journey in a small theater in Paris along with many others who's lives were cut short by hate, by misguided religion, by ignorance.
Here is to you my friend may you and the others from this tragic event find peace...


From MGMT's fans:  We are all heartbroken over the loss of Nick.  He and his family along with the others who were at Le Bataclan on Friday are in our thoughts and prayers.  The French fans have always been among MGMT's biggest supporters and no doubt many of their long time fans were in attendance on Friday.  Their lives will be forever changed.  I can report that our dear Coralie was there and is safe.  I hope that others will post and let us know that they are alright. 

Many of us keep in touch, even during this "down time" while the boys are writing.  We were immediately in contact on Friday night.  Of course as soon as we heard "Bataclan," we thought of MGMT and their French fans.  Coralie let us know right away that she had escaped and was safe with her family. We were all brought together by our love of the music and everything for which MGMT stands.    Peace to all of you. --lala and the CKs

This was posted by the band on Facebook regarding the shooting at Le Bataclan, in Paris. I love Paris and France, and am very sorry to everyone who has been affected. Here is the post
To Everyone:
We love France. We love Paris. MGMT are fortunate enough to have played Le Bataclan four times, including three consecutive nights in the fall of 2010.
The people of France and Paris have always loved us back. Grateful isn’t a word that adequately describes our feelings.
Three people instrumental in our reaching and loving France were at the Eagles of Death Metal show last night at Le Bataclan:
Delphine, our wonderful record label French bulldog, who fought tooth and nail for us to do the things we wanted to do; to be crazy; to go on French TV wearing Thanksgiving costumes with a vat of pudding; who took us to marvelous places in Paris; she was at Le Bataclan. She is okay. Unharmed somehow.
Arnaud, part of the pair of French live music promoters who saw us play a show at Glasslands in NYC in 2007 and said “we want to bring you to France”. They did. Arnaud and his partner Pascal placed a big bet on us and we have never forgotten. Arnaud was shot in the chest last night. We have heard he made it to the hospital, had surgery and will survive.
And we also just found out Nick Alexander, who was one of the top crew members and merch sellers MGMT has had and one of the nicest guys in rock. He sold merch for us on our two European tours in the Fall of 2010, including those three nights at Le Bataclan. We are crushed to find out Nick is one of the victims of last night’s insanity who didn’t make it. If you have a t-shirt from that tour, wear it proudly to honor Nick.
Our thoughts and positive vibes are with anyone who was affected by what happened last night, including our good friend from The Whigs and Eagles Of Death Metal touring drummer Julian Dorio.
We make music and play music to help make people happy. It is what every band we’ve ever met wants to do. Happiness, like music, comes in many different forms and styles. But happiness doesn’t come the way we saw last night. We all need to figure out how to make happiness win. Then the Aliens will come back and smile and bring us many amazing gifts.
We love you France. We love you Paris.
MGMT

When I think of all of the shows I've attended (it's in the twenties), although I don't count these two nights as shows, but I just remember feeling so blessed to be experiencing it. The two nights were different experiences and both were perfect. Memories are so precious.
