Why i love them

Update: catch a video of their The Cure cover here – émouvant.

How would you react if you suddenly bumped into an improvised Arcade Fire gig on Union Square? I would most probably freak out as this guy did:

“We’re walking up the stairs from the N,R at Union Square, bout 2a.m. Sat night. Couple street musicians are banging out some tune when we get up to the park.

Holy fucking shit.
It’s Arcade Fire.

Covering New Order. Win and Will on guitars. Regine on guitar-case-as-percussion. Why the fuck not? It’s a nice night in New York, why not blow the dozen wanderers’ minds who’ve magically stumbled upon this scene?

Cover a couple more, then wrap it up with Tunnels.

Holy fucking shit.
New York is magic.”
