on friday night we headed out to maryland
to see spoon and arcade fire perform.
of course it was incredible.
but arcade fire, oh gosh. they know how to put on a show!
we loved it. and we’re really loving their new album.
here’s my favorite song from their new album the suburbs performed live in nyc:

    Oh you lucky girl. I am waiting, waiting for them to announce a Vancouver tour.
    Without a doubt, their show in Sydney on the last tour was the best gig I have ever seen. And I've seen A LOT of gigs.
