Two bands remain unmatched in how worthwhile their live shows are. One is The Roots. The other is Arcade Fire. I’m extremely lucky to have seen both groups live twice. As evidence as to why I split my rent with him, one of the first thing Bill said to me when I got back from Vegas was, “I also may have bought us Arcade Fire tickets for October.”
Just came across The Wilderness Downtown, an interactive video by Chris Milk. HTML5, Google Maps, the address of your childhood home, and Arcade Fire’s “We Used to Wait” come together for a really amazing convergence of creativity and technology. It’d even inspire hipsters and emos alike.
I am all over this shit, except why did the people who moved into my old house choose to paint it that shade of pink? Disapprove.
