Arcade Fire wins the Grammy's

I'll post something longer when I get more time, but for now... congrats to Arcade Fire for winning album of the year at the Grammy's last night! It's not often an album I enjoy wins that award, but good for them. They were on The Daily Show a few months ago, and Jon Stewart said they were the nicest rock stars ever (or something to that effect).

Enjoy the end of their acceptance, and their performance of "Ready To Start" to closeout the awards last night:

Also... I know the Grammy's need to make money and keep on a time constraint and whatnot, but interspersing commercials into the band's performance at the end seems exceptionally tacky... I'll forgive it though because of the sweet performances by Mumford & Sons, The Avett Brothers, and Bob Dylan earlier.

If you don't already have Grammy award winning The Suburbs, you can pick it up for $5 from Amazon right now.


  1. Well, from what I've gathered, their performance was very much a surprise to the producers. They had to show the ads at the end and weren't really expecting to have to show them over a band. I think they had just generic closing credits stuff planned.

  2. Fair enough I suppose. I didn't watch it live and haven't read too much about it, but that makes sense. Also, I forgot to mention it in the post, but I love how happy Win Butler looks during their performance.
