I read some newspaper article recently that purported to tell people how to publish the most successful blogs. One of the rules is your postings must be easily read within 15 seconds and the other is to post three times a day. I just found that funny since its not exactly the rules I adhere to (then again, I'm not claiming to be "successful").
Courtesy of Bradley's Alamac is the Arcade Fire live show at TT Bears and a wonderfully detailed review (Bradley's obviously not adhering to the 15 second rule either..) with links to songs from the show - "Neighborhood #3/Rebellion" is my choice for best cut because it seems to weld together the Shins with U2 and the Talking Heads) - not the best sound quality but you can certainly get the point about Bradley's enthuasiastic review of the show and the crowd reaction.
Above picture is from the CD - if you actually bought the package - its the lyric sheet in the form of a program that you might receive at a funeral. Unlikely, that this band will be dying anytime soon, though.
UPDATE: Come to think of it, the unifying theme of this post is that Arcade Fire also likes to break rules - changin tempos and melodies on a dime, referencing "uncool" bands.
