The Arcade foyer

Play it: Arcade Fire 09.21.2005 Highlights
Download: Arcade Fire w/ David Bowie singing "Wake Up" (Gorilla vs Bear)

Photo by KablesSo my wife and I saw The Arcade Fire last night (@ The Paramount,) and it was a worthy event to break us in on using a babysitter for the first time, as we were duly impressed (yet again.) Fresh from their New York sets with David Bowie (download,) the Montreal indie gods were in full effect, complete with onstage wrestling during "Neighborhood #2 (Laika)" (Come on Alex, you can do it!,) and again covering Bowies "Five Days," this time sadly w/o the thin white duke.

They ended the set (playing "In the Backseat") and marched their instruments through the theater into the foyer and finished the set there (pictured, via Kables, he also has video of it.)

What truly made it great evening, though, was the opening act Wolf Parade, who many people are dubbing the next Arcade Fire since their also from Montreal (and feature a former member,) but perhaps might instead be the next Modest Mouse (Isaac Brock produced their soon-to-be-released SubPop debut, Apologies To The Queen Mary - this coming Tuesday.) They bounced around the stage and stormed through their short set w/ effortless aplomb. (Dat's right, aplomb!)

I do what I can blogs the show (also Kables)

I'm listening to the new Wolf Parade right now, which I got, um, through "a connection." I can tell you unequivocally that it rules.

Anyway, thanks for the linkage . . . :)
