    Default Arcade Fire in 09: Too Soon?

    Simple poll, just curious what everyone feels.

    I, for one, would die if they played again, because no one sends me back to Coachella more when I hear them, but I'm willing to wait too.

    It would keep up an every-two-year trend, which would make sense, but I get the feeling everyone thinks they need another year, now that they're kinda bigger in status.

    I'd be really happy if they played this year, but waiting until 2010 would be better.

    Let them make LP3, LP4 and LP5 first before they come back for their 3rd Coachella.

    I don't think 09 would be too soon if they had better a better sound guy than they did in 07. However, if they're gettin a 3rd go round, there are some other acts who I would rather see get a numero tres before them.
    Nothing to see here, folks - just move along

    I'm in the same boat. I love them and want them back, but I can wait. They must have their 3rd CD out before they come back.

    Honestly, I don't think we're gonna hear any noise out of them at all until 2010 at least, but even then... They played something like the guts of 30 festivals within a month of each other last year, and I got the distinct impression that it kicked the living shit out of them.

    I don't think they've got much love for the festival scene generally, and I really can't imagine them doing that kind of run again anyway. Coachella's probably a safe bet, but more relevantly to me, I doubt we'll see them at Oxegen or Electric Picnic again. Sigh.

    Incidentally, does it weird anybody else out that we're able to talk about 2010?!?! Where is my jetpack, bitches?

    I'm supposed to have robo-slaves by now, I was promised.

    I would prefer some fresh blood at the festival, instead of rehashing great sets that have come before. Their 05 set was awe inspiring, but I'm waiting until they headline.

    Im sorry, this is an arcade fire thread (poll), but i do have some beef with them: they fucking suck.

    I saw LCD open for them at the hollywood bowl earlier this year (or was it the end of last year? der)...regardless, i saw them at vegoose, then saw them at the bowl, and holy fuck do these guys blow. I love all types of music, and if you put out a good vibe im into it...but these guys and gals were vibeless.

    I dont know if the 2 shows i saw were their two worst shows EVA, but man was it a bunch of horrible noise.

    My vote: Yes 09 is too soon, im hoping to never see them again

    Arcade Fire can't cause anyone to punch somebody in the neck. They cause only joy and love, except in people who are fundamentally defective.

    I did get fairly badly hurt at their last show though, but that wasn't their fault.
