Where I'd rather be
A few months ago, a colleague asked me what I'd rather be doing with my life than what I'm, well, currently doing with it. Playing music in a Parisian freight elevator, at least in this context, might not make the top 10 but I think it would make the top 100.
Using ripped pages from a magazine for percussion- I would have never thought of that. If you make it past the elevator scene, you'll be further rewarded with a concert footage of the Arcade Fire playing in the middle of a crowd. As I watched it, I figured they were performing in the middle for a small audience in a venue the size of, maybe, the Crystal Ballroom. Then the camera pans up about halfway through to reveal they're in a much larger concert hall. Cool.
The Arcade Fire will play a sold-out date at the Schnitz on May 27th and will be up at the Gorge for this year Sasquatch Festival over Memorial Day weekend.
