[WATCH] ARCADE FIRE on AUSTIN CITY LIMITS

As previously mentioned, Arcade Fire appeared on PBS’ Austin City Limits over the weekend, and the entire episode is now available to stream online. The episode, which is just under an hour, features performances of Funeral favourites ‘Rebellion (Lies)’ and ‘Haiti’, as well as a majority of the best songs from their Grammy-winning 2010 LP The Suburbs. It concludes with a brief interview at the 50:20 mark, in which the group talks about what they do to relax (cooking, gardening, basketball) and other matters. “We’re still a bunch of weirdo artists from Montreal that somehow have made it kind of somewhat big,” Win Butler says, “but we never really stop feeling like outsiders.” The performances are another reminder of how great Arcade Fire are live, and I seriously wish they would come to New Zealand soon.
