Arcade Fire in an Elevator – Strangest Concert Locales
Arcade Fire don’t just play in an elevator in this live ‘Neon Bible’ clip — they actually play the elevator. With singer-guitarist Win Butler and the band — including a two-man horn section, two violinists and a xylophone player – squeezing into a lift for this extremely intimate clip, there’s hardly any room left for the two percussionists in the back to bring instruments along. One ends up ripping pages out of a magazine in time, while the other resorts to drumming with her hands on the elevator’s metal ceiling. It may not sound it, but it’s absolutely gorgeous.
