Arcade Fire

And so after the rollercoaster of teasers, graffiti, TV appearances, late night specials, fake heads, fake band names, fake stages, smoke, mirrors, and reflectors of reflectors of reflectors … we are here: Arcade Fire’s triumphant fourth record, and first double album, Reflektor is out tomorrow in stores and available to hear online now. It’s been a wild few months, but Arcade Fire have one last move before the release: a live concert that you can stream tonight.

NPR’s Live In Concert series has offered full recordings of performances for a while now, but tonight marks the first time they will have Arcade Fire on to play. Performing live from Capitol Studios in Los Angeles the band will perform many of the tracks on Reflektor starting at 10 PM EST. Check it out here. UPDATE: Hear it below and listen for nods to Lou Reed during the intro and outro of “Supersymmetry” (01:17:05)…

  1. For the record, if anybody is in LA, they are giving away tickets to that secret show like candy. I’ve “won” six tickets already. It’s like, all you have to do is tweet at them. Such a secret.
