Arcade Fire + LCD + Les Savy Fav = OMG!!!!11!

October 4, 2007

Yes folks, that is right. Tomorrow after the conclusion of my classes I will be taking the train up to New York City for what is sure to be the third greatest show of my life (I’m counting Coachella as one concert…). Honestly what are the odds that like, my two favorite bands are going to be sharing a stage on an island off of NYC? This summer my best friends and I were traveling through Europe where we got to go to the much underrated Summer Case festival (second favorite show) featuring Bloc Party, Flaming Lips, Maccabees, and yes, Arcade Fire and LCD Soundsystem. But still, it wasn’t the same stage.

I must admit, I haven’t been a huge Les Savy Fav fan for very long. I always enjoyed “The Sweat Descends” but that was pretty much it. Their latest record however, has some songs that sound as if they’re about to be extremely hard rock, but stay with it til’ the chorus and you’ll see it’s actually very catchy. “The Equestrian” is a perfect example of this, but I honestly can’t listen to this song without picturing Bunny doing her thing. Love ya Bunny.
