    I think what she is referring to at this point is the fact that all you have to do is tweet with the hashtag and you are in (up through 4pm today). 100% of the people have entered have won and people who entered more than once won each time with no judgement on quality or number of likes or retweets.

    Gotcha. This whole music experiment social media thing was stupid. Interesting that Arcade Fire can't even "sell out" a free show. I wonder what the capacity for the concert area is.

    I always think of Billie Jean whenever I hear that intro bassline in We Exist. Love it. After a second full listen, the track that really popped out at me was You Already Know. So good.

    Oh wait, yes I do: you are someone who ties their identity and meaning in life to the ongoing perceived cultural relevance of the music they listen to, as well as their ability to get tickets to relevant shows.

    Crazy popular?! While you were listening to Korn and alternative/nu-metal bands in high school, they were killing it on the Outdoor Theater!

    ps They sold out nyc summerstage show (5000 capacity) 8 years ago (even before neon bible came out) in less than a week. Bowie came out and played Queen Bitch & Wake Up with them. Bryan probably saw them at Troubadour or somewhere else to that size in LA and I bet he'll tell you the same thing. New Arcade Fire is not very good if you have been listening to them since Funeral days

    Also, I don't live in Sunnyvale anymore. So you'll have to adjust your geographically based musical knowledge insults. Or you know, understand blatant sarcasm. YOUR CHOICE.

    Seriously doubt they are supplying parking of any kind of even a place to pay for it.

    I don't think that's what Frank meant. The crowd will be in the parking lot to watch the show.

    Thumbs up Re: MissingPerson's Official Lovely Non-Threatening Arcade Fire Joy Parade.

    from a hollywood traffic website

    Tuesday, October 29, 2013 12 noon - 9:00 p.m.

    All lanes of Vine Street, between Hollywood Blvd. and Yucca St., will be closed. Additionally, southbound lanes of Argyle Ave., between Hollywood Blvd. and Yucca St., will be closed.

    if AF go on at 6:30 we can expect at least a good 1 hr set.

    sounds about right. I randomly just got through on a tweet i sent yesterday. Im guessing this "costume" enforcement will be pretty relaxed if theres going to be 2500 people there?

    They're with Merge, but you know that the album is being distributed by Universal and promoted by Capitol, right?

    They're not indie enough to maintain spooks attention.

    Also, what in the giant fuck are you talking about?

    edit: Also Spooks, you've made it pretty clear that you haven't cared for anything they've done since Funeral so why do you continue to spend so much energy following this band. You're 1 for 4 in liking their albums. It might be time to move on.
