    The band took the stage at 9PM wearing the costumes they had donned on the street. It was immediately clear that a few things were different about Arcade Fire. Gone was the second drum kit of their early years and the Suburbs tour. Instead, they had two additional percussionists playing a mixture of congas, timbales, wood blocks, bongos, and other instruments, adding much more rhythmic complexity and power to their sound throughout the set. There were no horn players present and Sarah Neufeld was the only devoted violinist; Owen Pallett was there, and switched between violin and keyboards. Otherwise, the band’s instrumentation consisted of guitars, drums, and synths/keys. In this way, Arcade Fire presented themselves not as barons of symphonic indie rock anthems, but as the tightest of house bands ready to provide a sweaty night of dancing tunes. That said, and as anyone should expect, their anthemic choruses still crept in between the beats.

    The set was short and only contained songs from Reflektor. Here’s the setlist in as much detail as I can recall.

    01 “Reflektor”: Anyone who watched the Internet on 9/9/9 knows what this song sounds like by now. It came across every bit as thumping, dark, and moody as the album cut, with the loud guitar bursts hitting especially hard and bringing an extra level of urgency that doesn’t come across over an MP3 stream. Unfortunately, this performance featured one fewer David Bowie than on the single. However, what did make the live version particularly different and interesting was the addition of a long salsa percussion jam at the beginning.

    02 Unknown: Next they transitioned into to a simpler, less syncopated percussion jam, which slowly morphed into this melodic guitar and keyboard-driven tune that recalled Born In The U.S.A.-era Springsteen. Jeremy Gara and the other two percussionists provided a thick mid-tempo beat while Pallett played synths and Regine Chassagne accompanied Win Butler on a soaring and yearning lead vocal melody.

    03 Unknown: This whole song was grounded by a synth bass line that sounded like the love child of “Billie Jean” and the very beginning of “Livin’ On A Prayer.” Needless to say, it was an upbeat, charging disco number, and inspired more hands-in-the-air dancing among the crowd than anything else after “Reflektor.” It was also one of the more Talking Heads-y moments of the night (that bass line sounded kind of like “Naive Melody” too, though less friendly), but it fell back on Arcade Fire’s trusty guitars for release in the chorus.

    Win addresses the crowd: “We are called the Reflektors, and we are from Montreal, Quebec, Canada,” thus indicating how far they went with the whole pseudonym thing. At no point in the night did they refer to themselves as Arcade Fire.

    04 Unknown: Richard Reed Parry started into a slow, bluesy guitar riff, and the band added layer after layer of slap bass, clavichord-style synth, and more guitar. It all built into a swampy, funky groove that would have felt at home on the loudest Dr. John record ever. More so than any other song they played last night, it was hard to picture how this one would sound on record, since it worked perfectly as an in-concert jam and pace setter but didn’t have a clear structure.

    Win: “We haven’t played together in a while, so thanks for being so into this.”

    05 Unknown: Everything up until now had been pretty awesome, but the next three songs totally killed and were the highlight of the night. They brought another level of nuance, melody, and experimentation to the sounds we had heard so far, hinting at the possible depth of the album as a whole. This one began with a guitar line straight from the Cars and kept its promise by moving into a fun, shout-along song for driving in the sun during the year 1978. The guitars grew louder and more snarling around a four-chord progression, exploding into an awe-inspiring state of controlled chaos.

    06 Unknown: They transitioned into a dark, cascading electro song, with Win and Regine’s dual lead vocals propelled forward by Gara’s rolling toms. I can’t wait to hear this one again to pick apart its layers.

    07 Unknown: Whatever this was, I thought it was the best song of the night. It sounded something like New Order’s “Bizarre Love Triangle,” but happier, bigger, and more rhythmically nuanced. The crowd’s reaction was infectiously positive, as if everyone was shocked and elated to be hearing their new favorite song.

    08 “Here Comes The Nighttime”: As Win strapped on a twelve-string acoustic guitar, he uttered the least trustworthy statement in rock: “This is our last song!” It began with a fast and energetic mariachi-style beat and transitioned suddenly into something more beachy. This seemed like a bit of a novelty tune, designed to get people dancing, but the chorus was irresistible and had everyone singing along right away.

    This was when Win defied expectations and delivered on his promise to bring the show to a close, leaving the stage as the band continued playing, walking through the crowd, and taking a seat next to the sound man. My hope that he was over there discussing mix levels was dashed when the music petered out and he threw on a salsa track. The show was officially over and Win had assumed the role of DJ. Instead of going back into their dressing room, the remaining band members moved into the bar and mingled with the crowd. It seemed like their final addition to the Reflektor/dance/salsa theme was to throw a party with everyone who attended the show.

    The massive paper mache heads in the video reminded me of something that I quite couldn't place, but then I remembered U2 did something very similar during the Zoo TV era.

    the digital download preorder still qualified you for first ticket whatever, but i got the vinyl as well. it was the price of the record more than the digital download, which came with it.

    I'm in Amoeba right now and just came across several copies of something called "The Reflektors." 12-inch record, 14 songs, pressed on Merge Records. Uses the EXACT SAME artwork as the "Reflektor" single. Anyone have any idea what this is?

    All and all, it's pretty cool of Win to take the time to personally respond to the complaints of an unemployed freelance writer who literally had no property interest affected by the vandalism, but did have a substantial interest in getting his foot in the door of clicktroll publishing.

    The whole, "we like the stark, so I don't consider it graffiti or offensive" is a bit troublesome, but in a lot of ways I agree with his position that doing this isn't really underground, subversive "art" as much as it is a fairly normative marketing scheme.

    I can get on board with that critique. There's a part of the marketing scheme for this album that's selling itself as outre and forward-thinking, when it's actually pretty conventional. The guerrilla art thing is a cliche at this point.

    The part of the album release cycle that should be celebrated was turning the single release into a record store event, and doing the multimedia rollout at the same time. That's how you can successfully bridge the gap between your current level of mainstream success with your roots in what's left of underground, meaningful music culture.

    that was a pretty poorly written article. it wasn't til i got to the end that I was able to determine that it was actually vandalism ("my wife’s boss spent hours cleaning the posters and paste off the wall"; up until that point I hadn't ruled out the possibility that the owner had accepted payment); and Win's note makes it clear that what was intended was much less destructive than what was actually done.

    But the #1 takeaway was -- Win sure writes his name weird.
