Today @ Jazz Fest: Arcade Fire

Today, the surreal becomes a reality as Arcade Fire arrives at Jazz Fest for a headlining set at 5:25. Back in February, Arcade Fire was awarded the cherished Album of the Year Grammy for their 3rd LP, The Suburbs, easily the Canadian band’s most accessible effort to date. To generalize, the casual music listener is understandably unaware of Arcade Fire, and if you don’t listen to satellite radio, pour through music magazines or go blogosphere-mining on a regular basis, you could have possibly missed this band until now.
