Exclusive Video: Arcade Fire Live in Berkeley, CA, 6/1/07

YumSugar and I had the pleasure of seeing Arcade Fire play this weekend at the Greek Theatre on the UC Berkeley campus. Though I've been to more than my fair share of concerts, I can safely say, without hyperbole, that the Arcade Fire was truly unlike any band I've ever seen live.

While other indie-rock bands use orchestral instruments like accessories, the Arcade Fire is, essentially, an orchestra — complete with violins, stand-up bass, French horns, and some other instruments I couldn't identify. What's even more remarkable is that the members move nimbly from instrument to instrument; one minute, frontwoman Regine Chassagne was playing the accordion, and the next minute, she was rocking the drums like a pro.

As if the music weren't enough, the on-stage visuals reached beyond cool into truly cutting-edge, with live feeds of the musicians projected onto circular screens surrounding them. Luckily, YumSugar took some video at the show, which you can watch when you
