Arcade Fire :: 2003 and 2010

Arcade Fire sold out two nights at Madison Square Garden, and they will broadcast the second show live tonight over the Internet at 10pm EST. There was a time in 2003 where they played rock clubs and wondered if "Wake Up" and "Keep The Car Running" would ever light anyone on fire. This video is from that time, before they were capital letter anything, before anyone arbitrarily loved or hated their albums. This video below is the first known Arcade Fire performance put to tape. This was a time when they packed against each other and played a tiny rock club; Tonight, they'll take 20,000 people to The Suburbs.
