September 29, 2010: Arcade Fire, Live

Just a quick post about the concert last night: it...was spectacular. I've never seen a show so well put together. Arcade Fire is truly one of the best acts in the biz and definitely one of the best acts in the world. They really do have universal appeal: I saw grandparents in their 60's, kids as young as 15, all nationalities...they are truly a band that transcends boundaries (both socially and musically).
The show was at Key Arena in Seattle (about 3 blocks from the Space Neddle), and it was packed (all the seats available anyway). I would guess about 2500 were there in total for the start of the main act (AF).
Amazing lights show, awesome screen graphics, talented musicians (they can play all of each others' instruments (and did for some songs)) was great. More than great. Amazing.
I'll have the Arcade Fire "Bands" tribute up by the end of October. They are currently my favorite band.
BTW, here's what they played:

1. Ready to Start
2. Month of May
3. Keep the Car Running
4. Neighborhood #2 (Laika)
5. No Cars Go
6. Haiti
7. Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)
8. Modern Man
9. Rococo
10. The Suburbs
11. Ocean of Noise
12. Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)
13. We Used to Wait
14. Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)
15. Rebellion (Lies)

16. Intervention
17. Wake Up

Most amazing show I've ever been to. I'll try to post soon.
