Arcade Fire - "Neon Bible/Wake Up"
Date uploaded: March 24, 2007
Arcade Fire's Take Away Show is actually mildly funny. They're a fairly large collective, with seven players in the band, so what better place to perform their Take Away Show than in the closed confines of an elevator? To replicate some of the sounds heard in the "Neon Bible," a magazine is creatively shredded to the beat. It's a performance so intimate (both figuratively and literally) that you almost feel like you're in the elevator with them.
As a bonus, the band steps into the streets following their elevator performance, only to be warmly welcomed by an excited crowd. There, they perform the uplifting "Wake Up" with the help of some megaphones.
