Random Music Thoughts – April 25, 2011

Posted: April 25, 2011 in Random Music Thoughts

Last night I saw Arcade Fire at the UIC Pavilion. The show was simply amazing. I normally don’t like big shows but there’s something really fun about a giant crowd singing along to your favorite songs. I was worried that a pricey show wouldn’t live up to my expectations but I had a blast. I got there early and got a great spot. They started off strong with “Month of May”, “Rebellion (Lies)”, and “Neighborhood #2 (Laika)”. The rest of the set was great, no surprise that most of the songs were from the new album. They left the stage after “Sprawl II” and came back for an encore. The crowd went nuts when they played “Ready to Start”. Next was “Keep The Car Running”. They ended the night with “Wake Up”. It was an epic night. I’m glad I went. You can check out the setlist over here. COS has their review here.

Lemuria is playing Metro on June 17, 2011 along with some other bands.

The new Beastie Boys album is streaming now. It’s great from what I’ve heard so far. Take a listen at hotsaucecommittee.com. I can’t believe it’s been 13 years since I’ve seen them live.

The new album from the Antlers, Burst Apart, is streaming at NPR.

I guess Appleseed Cast played last week. I don’t know how I forgot about that one.
