Another Music Post to Make J Feel Old

Stumbled across some cool music stuff on Pitchfork and Brooklyn Vegan today after school.

Apparently, as much as I'd hate to admit it, Brooklyn is still the epicenter of indie rock coolness. Beirut and Final Fantasy played together to a crowd that included, among others, Sufjan Stevens, the National, and Grizzly Bear. As if that weren't enough, members of both bands, plus a few folk from Arcade Fire played Beirut's "Gulag Orkestar" as an encore. Of course all of this was captured for the rest of us on YouTube.

On top of it all, Arcade Fire had a b-side reviewed. Go to Merge right now and buy the 7" even if you don't own a turntable.

So happy for you these days, comoprozac!!! I hope you are feeling good. I say you and R, and ATR and me have a few drinks sometime very soon to celebrate.

So, Feist and Arcade Fire are worth the $$$?

Yes and yes.
