Live music: Arcade Fire

Here's the thing about Arcade Fire: I don't like their vocals, but I'm amazed at what they're able to do live. I could be off a little, but in this video (performing "No Cars Go") I count three guitars, one drumset, a keyboard, two violins, an accordian, and two main vocalists and somehow they make one good, cohesive sound live without fucking up once. The last three minutes are unbelievably amazing. The guy's voice still annoys the hell out of me, but what this band can do with their instruments is amazing. Best 8-person band out there.
