It is upon us, five whole nights of Arcade Fire. If you weren't one of the lucky ones to get tickets to Judson Memorial Church (we hear capacity is only around 300), you'll be happy to hear the band will be back for three nights in May. Most definitely at a bigger venue (we've been calling United Palace Theater for a while now - though nothing is confirmed as of yet).

If you did get tickets to a show this week, we suggest getting there on time (they go on at 8:30pm) and we also suggest you stick around afterwards because the band has been showing up for surprise encores off the stage. Here they are in the lobby of Porchester Hall in London (see if you can spot Chris Martin singing along), and (below) this past weekend in the basement of the venue in Montreal.

Looks like Win (who we interviewed in 2004) had a camera of his own towards the end...maybe some footage will go up on their new Neon Bible website.
