Drove 8 hours to see The Arcade Fire at the Irving Plaza in New York last Wednesday. David Byrne sang "This Must Be the Place" with them in the encore. Byrne was sooooo cute, he came to the sound check with his backpack and his bike helmet and he had tea with all us little friends of the band. David Bowie came to the show too, his second AF show in two nights! Canadian band poised for super stardom and being mentored by the giants of new music. The Edge is still trying to make me think Jakalope is important. Last week they told me all stinkin day the Nickleback drummer had retired!
