Arcade Fire - New York, 17 February 2007

If you'd placed a bet that any Australian festival would feature Arcade Fire in third spot you could of made a hell of a lot of money. But that's what Big Day Out has managed to produce. At the moment the middle of the lineup is pretty light (they've said that this will be the focus of the second announcement), but what a hell of a top three.

This is a set from way back in 2007 (there'll be something more recent later on). There are a few rough points - Régine isn't the greatest singer (she sounds ok on Poupée de cire, poupée de son, so maybe it's just the comparison with the studio versions that hurts her), but this is also a point where the band were still small enough to be able to play multiple nights at a church.

The sound is good - Wake Up isn't up to the same quality as the rest of the set, but that's explained in the introduction. Like I said, I'll be putting up a couple of shows from all the headliners, so if you want something more recent just a wait a while.
