2006_12_arts_arcadechurch.jpgAh, remember when the Arcade Fire played Mercury Lounge and on the street in Union Square? Now they're back for a five night run which is thankfully not at Webster Hall, but at Judson Memorial Church. Rumors of a church venue have been circulating recently, and we're glad they're true. If you've heard their new song, Intervention, you know a church is very fitting. From ArcadeFire.net:

"The band will play 5 shows in New York City in February at Judson Memorial Church in Greenwich Village.

Feb 13th-17th, 2007 @ 8:30
Judson Memorial Church
55 Washington Square South
New York, NY 10012

Tickets will go on sale January 5th at 9am (ONLINE ONLY, do not call the church) They are $29, will-call only, and limited to 2 per person and the show is open to ALL ages."

Get your best Craigslist proposals ready, these will certainly be hard tickets to come by. In the meantime, here's the band having some fun with "Dancing In The Dark" and "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun":

Will David Byrne show up? David Bowie?
