...and if the snow buries my neighborhood, then I'll dig a tunnel from my window to yours.
When The Arcade Fire announced their December San Fran show, it sold out in a few days, despite being a band that's just barely getting noticed by even the undergroundest of the underground-dwelling hipsters. Perhaps it was their debut record’s 9.7 rating at Pitchfork. Or maybe it was this swooning review of a live show (dripping with hyperbole, but I believe it’s sincere).
I was bummed to miss their SF appearance. Funeral is pretty much the only thing that's seen any action in my iTunes this week and I have to admit I’m intrigued by their quiet nods to David Byrne and his much talleyhooed appearance in the crowd at one of their performances. I wanted to watch a rock concert side-by-side with David! Poo. Still, there was hope: word was they might return to the Bay in January.
