CAN YOU HEAR ME?

I CAN’T HEAR MYSELF!

MY EARS ARE RINGING, AFTER MORE THAN THREE HOURS OF STANDING NEAR THE FRONT OF A WILD-AND-CRAZY CROWD WHILE THREE LOUD, LOUD BANDS ROARED THEMSELVES HOARSE: GOSSIP, LCD SOUNDSYSTEM, AND THE ARCADE FIRE!

MOSHING IS SO 1994, BUT APPARENTLY NOBODY’S NOTICED!! I’M EXHAUSTED!! TERRIBLE WALL-OF-SOUND ACOUSTICS!! EARSPLITTING FEEDBACK!! AND THEN THE ARCADE FIRE’S TSUNAMI OF NOISE!!

BUT ARCADE FIRE MADE IT OH-SO-WORTH IT!!

SET LIST: BLACK MIRROR / KEEP THE CAR RUNNING / LAIKA / NO CARS GO / HAITI / SUBMARINE / NEON BIBLE / BLACK WAVE / INTERVENTION / ANTICHRIST TV BLUES / THE WELL AND THE LIGHTHOUSE / TUNNELS / POWER OUT / REBELLION / ENCORES: HEADLIGHTS LIKE DIAMONDS, WAKE UP

THIS WAS PRETTY CLOSE TO THE VIEW FROM WHERE I STOOD. (This picture’s from here.)

I CAN ACTUALLY SEE MYSELF IN THIS PHOTO (ABOUT ONE-THIRD FROM THE LEFT):

CAN YOU HEAR ME??

I CAN’T HEAR YOU!!

*Thanks to Bryan Zug for finding a ticket for Amelia, so she could join us!
