Just the other day I was lamenting that the Arcade Fire had yet to announce any dates out West, and today I see that they’ve rounded out their tour quite a bit with dates announced for , Seattle, Portland, Berkeley, Big Sur and Los Angeles. That’s a healthy dose of the best baroque indie rock band to hit arenas for our West Coast ears. I’ll be trying to hit the Greek show but that also takes me away from the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass weekend festivities, so maybe I’ll wait and make a small trek down to Big Sur to see the action there. Read on for the dates.
