Arcade Fire is at the top of the very tall and exclusive indie rock food chain.  Since 2004, they’ve released two successful, independently-produced albums, and have caught the attention of artists such as the legendary David Bowie, played every major music festival under the sun, and even collaborated live with U2. Not bad for a bunch of Montreal art fags.

That said, you might be interested to know who’s fancy they’ve tickled this time around. Barrack Obama. Yeah, I said it. Barrack Obama – the likely next President of the United States. They’ve been commissioned to play – dare I say open – two shows for him in Ohio, today and tomorrow. This isn’t something you’d expect to see on a either a show flier or at a political event.

I’d line up for that.
