    Fantastic show from them tonight, and the crowd was incredible. Kinda sad though at the end when Win said they wouldn't be back for a few years.

    Their ACL tv thing - to be broadcast in January - looks like it was quite something.

    I could see them breaking until 2014. We'll still get footage of whatever happens in Montreal and at the Bridge School Benefit though. DVD soon, too!

    That's the same thought I had too. I will be in my thirties and Funeral will be a decade old. Will Butler is my age; Arcade Fire are the first band that's been deeply meaningful in my life that I've actually aged with.

    So, is this whole Bridge School thing...worth it? I'm having trouble imagining AF acoustic sitting in the midst of Tony Bennett, Diana Krall, and Dave Matthews fans. The only alternative is waiting to see them again until I'm in my late 30's.

    It's a relaxed day. The crowds go for Bridge School as a whole and not a particular act, and it tends to skew older. During quiet songs you may hear a bit of chatter though, especially out on the lawn. You get some rarities, and a number of surprise collabs ranging from awesome to WTF ("Ever thought you would hear Josh Groban sing Disarm with Billy Corgan? Well you will now!"). It's a benefit concert, I'd describe it as quaint.

    This video sums up the day nicely:

    does everyone get a decent amount of time for their sets, or are there too many artists to give everyone a full set?

    edit: also saw Christian Bale during AF last night. that was quite unexpected.

    I believe everyone gets an hour, though I have not been in a few years.

    "It doesn't matter if you haven't heard of a band before, it can be the best thing in the world," Butler told the audience while being introduced as one of this year's Short List nominees.

    "And if you have heard of a band before," he continued, "it doesn't mean it sucks."
    AF winning the Polaris -



    "Just because you've heard of a band before, it doesn't mean they suck."

    And chatting with Damian Abraham. Win phones Régine in the middle to let her know they won, and then breaks a microphone -

    The big free final show in Montréal is tonight in about an hour, and will be streamed and liveblogged by http://radio3.cbc.ca/

    Current crowd estimates are between 70 - 100,000 folks. You'll be delighted to know the Don't Mess With Quebec shirt has reappeared.

    It' still on. Speaking in Tongues is the only out-of-the ordinary one so far. I think we've probably got Sprawl II left, and that's it.

    Final crowd estimate is about 200,000.

    "The only price of admittance is that if you see us on the street, please don't ask us for a picture. Just say "Hey, saw you at the show." And we'll go "Hey yeah, saw you at the show!""

    I say, since arcade fire is like one of the biggest bands in the world now, will they attempt a zootv like transformation to stay relevant, or at least poopular?

    Such a great album & tour, I'm sad to see it end. Thank you AF for the many unforgettable moments. Hope they can keep the awesome flowing (after a well-deserved break).
