Hipster Event Of The Fall

Just how big are the Arcade Fire? Well come this fall they are set to play amphitheaters - including Red Rocks and the Hollywood Bowl - around the country, with LCD Soundsystem tagging along in support on most dates. They will also make their way back to New York City (where they had a much buzzed about three night stand a few months back) to play a huge crowd of music loving hipsters on Randall's Island. I don't know about the rest of the country, but I'm expecting this show to sell out quite quickly with that one-two punch of a bill.

Pre-sale for a bunch of dates starts tomorrow. You can also check out the rest of the dates so far here (via Brooklyn Vegan). Start searching the thrift stores for your ironic t-shirt now.

Here's a couple of videos for you viewing pleasure. First up Arcade Fire with "Go Cars Go"....

And here's LCD Soundsystem with "Daft Punk Is Playing At My House"....

Also here's their much talked about sets from this year's Coachella (via Dimeadozen)...
