How do you know Sound Team, the band that's opening up for you?
We played with them and the Unicorns. The last time we were on tour we were driving through Texas and we were driving to Dallas, and we were in Waco and our van broke down. So we were stranded, and we called up a friend, and she knew Sound Team, and she called them up. They were kind enough to come and pick us up in the middle of nowhere with all our gear, and then they drove us up to Dallas in time to make it for our show.

Any surprises for your show tomorrow?
I can't really say much. I think it might be a bit different because we have some extra people in town, but I can't say exactly what's going to happen.

* The whole interview at the Village Voice
* Sound Team tells BV Win asked them to play the show
* People speculate Bowie might be a surprise guest

Two of the "extra people" he is almost definetely reffering to are Pietro (French Horn) of Belle Orchestre and Owen (Violin) of Final Fantasty, they both played the Letterman show with Arcade Fire last night (which was great by the way).

Will the show go on if the predicted thunderstorm happens?

Yes the show is rain or shine. It rained earlier this summer during the David Bryne show and it was still a great time!

The show was amazing beyond belief. Belle Orchestre was cool and Sound Team was alright (though they looked a little tired or something). Arcade Fire was off the hook interplanetary good for the whole show. I had heard the rumors circulating about Bowie being there so I sort of expected him to come out for the big encore set they did. I wasn't dissapointed, god damn! that man is made of pure rock. Unbelievable show, I hope some live recordings surface on the net. The Bowie+Arcade Fire versions of "Queen Bitch" and "Wake Up" were outstanding.

Hot diggitty dog!! I'm originaly from Montreal, and I must say that if it were not for David Bowie's public heartfelt rantings and sophisticated taste(he's always on the vanguard of what's new and blazingingly good) I would not have heard of the Arcade Fire so early on. What a profound pleasure it is indeed, to witness such an immensely talented group receiveing such worldwide acclaim. Bowie playing Queen Bitch with the band is beyond sublime... Surely it's a veritable slice of heaven.....

What a night! What a show! It will take me a while to recover from this one. Bowie put simply;the most artistically accomplished multi-disciplinary, insubordinate innovative artist of modernity... joing forces onstage with a band that he has been "shouting from the rooftops" about collaborating with Arcade Fire,thus far a musical entity that are emerging as the most musically potent thing to happen in pop music in quite some time. Much like Bowie, their work cannot be pigeonholed by style or genre...Long live creative eclecticism.... The joint collaboration on Queen Bitch was incredible!!!
