The last time Arcade Fire made it to Columbus was in October 2007 with LCD Soundsystem. Since then, they’ve released The Suburbs and won multiple awards, including Grammy for Album of the Year. This time around, their tour took them to a hockey arena on the state fairgrounds in Indianapolis, so we made the trek to our neighboring state this past Wednesday for Arcade Fire’s show with the National.
On a side note, Arcade Fire winning best album earlier this year also spawned one of my favorite memes: WhoIsArcadeFire.tumblr.com.
People were mad about this “unknown” band, apparently.
