Super-brief music review

by Adam Reger

The new Arcade Fire album, The Suburbs, is really awesome. I would recommend it. Tonight they’re doing some kind of webcast of their concert at Madison Square Garden, directed by Terry Gilliam. If it proves to be anything like an Arcade Fire show it will probably be pretty excellent. (I have seen them four times, a personal record, and for good reason. The first time I saw them, they went on second (in a bill of four bands) and are still the only opening band I’ve seen (or heard of) to have the audience call for an encore. Their Philadelphia legend was made even before Funeral was released.)
