Arcade Fire @Radio City Music Hall, May 9th

Apparently, Monday was not enough.

I was lucky enough to pick up a great single yesterday on Ticketbastard -- exactly one row behind where I sat for Björk one week ago. Radio City Music Hall, while less intimate, has superior acoustics, and the larger crowd supplied the energy.

I love how, much like in a play, the musicians in Arcade Fire who are not Win and Regine manage to infuse their own personalities and presence into the overall performance. Watch some of the guys in "Neighborhood #2 (Laika)" -- friggin' hysterical!

Happily, they closed out their magical 3 night run with "Wake Up":

Even the National sounded fantastic -- I could actually hear the vocals tonight. Here's a song from their last album, Alligator, called "Mr. November":

And now the magic's all done. *Sigh!*
