Giveaway: Arcade Fire brings REFLEKTOR TOUR to the Shoreline in July

Arcade Fire's new album, Reflektor, is an incredible step forward for the Grammy Award-winning band. The band's albums have always been epic in scope, and you can't help but wonder how they keep up with such momentum. Reflektor not only maintains that momentum, but builds itself anew as a uniquely scorching blend of influence and style. James Murphy's seamless production is heard at every turn, and yet it doesn't overpower what is still truly an Arcade Fire piece from start to finish. An album like Reflektor will of course be supported by a tour that's as equally tremendous. The REFLEKTOR [...]

Jason: One Hundred Percent has a new [...]

Arcade Fire violin player and solo musician Sarah Neufeld — not to be confused with Arcade Fire cofounder (and Win Butler's wife) Régine Chassagne — will bring her violin flare to the Hotel Utah on May 1st with two other strays from mega-popular indie bands: Gregory Rogove from Devendra Banhart's backing band, performing a minimalist piano set, and Colin Stetson of Bon Iver adding some groovy solo saxophone work. The tour is called "Alone Together" — which may or may not be a reference to how everyone feels when they use the internet. Speaking of the internet, check out some [...]

Review & Photos: Arcade Fire brings full production to intimate crowd in Big Sur 10/5/10

It was a 2 1/2 hr drive down the coast to Big Sur. As I hugged the treacherous curves it was hard to keep my eyes on the road. I was in awe of the view as the sun set down beneath the coastal clouds. I stopped briefly at the Bixby Canyon Bridge to take it all in. The tide was high and the frothy white surf was battering the craggy rocks below. You could smell the sweet salt water and feel the damp cold air as it penetrated my layers of clothing. "Magnificent!" I thought to myself, "What a [...]
