Arcade Fire is playing on my camera

So last night I was given the lucky option to attend a free LCD Soundsystem/Arcade Fire show. This being my first time to Randall's Island and I wasn't too impressed. As I got in line to the Stairway to port-a-potty heaven I looked out along the field and saw just how cruddy it was. No matter, S.Wan aka Swan got me free tickets to my first LCD SS and AF show, so I couldn't complain. Little did I know this would be Arcade Fire's last concert in NYC for two years!

The video I got during the show doesn't really compare to this video below that I captured right after the show, when Arcade Fire decided to have a surprise encore right next to the stage. They covered the Violent Femmes' "Kiss Off." Lucky for me the BrooklynVegan posted the vid and gave me credit. Later on I found out the video is posted on Stereogum. As of right now, it's the 7th most commented article on Stereogum. Yup. All I can say is I'm pumped. The days of me moonlighting as a video reporter have begun. ha.

Amen for my camera. I love that thing.

Thanks BV and Stereogum. ;)
