Arcade Fire performed the first of two intimate live performances as The Reflektors last night in Brooklyn. James Murphy introduced the band before a packed warehouse filled with be-costumed revelers at 299 Meserole. They played an enthusiastic but short 9 song set, including 7 new tunes from forthcoming record Reflektor and oldies "Sprawl II" and "Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)." In case you weren't lucky enough to snag a ticket to the exclusive event, you can check out lots of videos and photos from the disco-tinged event below.

If you decided to put down the $500 tickets for tonight's second performance, be warned: when the band came onstage around 9:30 p.m., they tricked the audience by appearing on a second stage to the side of what appeared to be the main one. Friends don't let friends be tricked by Arcade Fire.
