Arcade Fire Bangor/DC

By 9:18 PM

My favorite band of ALL time is- indeed- the Arcade Fire.

2005/06 I remember taking a trip to San Diego with a few friends my Sophomore year and they introduced my to indie music. My life would never be the same. They played Arcade Fire, the Ravenettes, Freezepop, Interpol, Franz Ferdinand.. and I dont even remember the rest. But I kept circling my requests to "Woodlands National Anthem". The strangest of songs on Funeral, I admit. But I was entranced by Regine's gypsy voice that seemed so carefree and longing. I missed my opportunity to see them live in Utah because I was preparing to serve an LDS mission in Argentina! It was already enough I was going to miss my best friend's wedding (Jess & Josh)!!! Walking through the streets I would hum "Neon Bible" (Ironically) and "Evil" by Interpol. 
I decided 2014 would be my year. I have already been to some amazing concerts in my life

  • the B52's
  • Santigold
  • Beyonce

ok... i cant think of the rest... an update for another day- if you will.

So the only 2 i would ever want to see before I die was The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Arcade Fire. Well. Dream come true. I volunteered for a show to help spread awareness about Haiti and the other show I just paid for GA. I got some AMMMMMAZZZZING pictures that I will share. I will write another blog post of volunteering and being part of the theatrics for the show ; )
