Arcade Fire and Obama
Arcade Fire and Obama

...this was the Obama Staff Ball - the final official event put on by the Presidential Inauguration Committee. Arcade Fire and Jay-Z preformed. The actor Kal Penn, who everyone in the crowd knew as 'Kumar' took the stage. He was a surrogate for the campaign so he spent his time on stage outing by name all the staffers who 'tried to kill him' by texting while driving through snowbanks.

Vice-President Joe Biden and his wife Jill made an appearance and then President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama took the stage. The new president said something to the effect of,"You guys are great." To which someone next to us said,"Hire me!" Hm. Seems to be a theme developing. Free beer dude. [Mediabistro]

The culmination of my past six months of work on the Obama campaign resulted in an amazing night. The Obama Staff Ball, which was also the last official Inaugural event, was held last night (1/21) at the DC Armory. The crowd of about 4,000 people included Obama staff and their lucky 'plus ones'. There was an inspiring speech by President Obama and musical performances by both Arcade Fire and Jay-Z. Frankly, I could not ask for a better ending to my campaign experience. It was especially humbling to hear Win Butler constantly thank us for all the hard work we put into the campaign, telling us they were especially honored to have been asked to play this event. I will not bore you with the details of my life on the campaign, but suffice to say it has been the most memorable experience of my life. It's an experience that cannot be matched and we are reminded that we are in a sort of limbo everyday now that it's all over. As Win humorously remarked in the middle of the concert, "This is the funnest party I've been to for people who have all just lost their jobs".

By the time Jay-Z came on, I was mostly too busy having fun to remember I had a camera, so he's not in many pictures. Check out all of them, and Arcade Fire's setlist, below...

Interesting that the majority of Arcade Fire's set drew from "Funeral" (6 songs) and only a bit from "Neon Bible" (3 songs).

^^^that's b/c the funeral songs are bangers and the neon bible songs are more mellow. you play the bangers in front of a crowd who doesn't know you as well.

The 'clown' that 9:50 was referring to is Stephen Harper, the Canadian PM. And point taken, you don't see Americans up in Ottawa playing for his campaign staffers. And you know, is Arcade Fire 'American' - haven't scholars debated this one for ages? The brothers Butler are indeed Texas-born. But Rich, Regine and the rest? Well they are about as 'Born in the USA' as Spencer Krug, Bryan Adams, Carl Newman, Geddy Lee and Glass Tiger.

Posted by Anonymous | January 22, 2009 10:29 AM

Born In The U.S.A. is an anti-American song so its ironic it is being played to celebrate Obama who is trying to heal America. Come on Win and Will, you know better! I can't blame the canucks in the band though, they are second class English and French citizens.

Gotta love how JayZ a former drug dealer who raps about killing people and drinking champagne in almost every song is performing at official Obama events. Give me a fuckin break! I like Jay-Z but Obama should not be associated with any artists that glamorize that bullshit.

Also...arent Arcade Fire Canadian? Why the fuck is Win wearing a "Yes we Did" sticker on his collar? Man that pisses me off...what the fuck did he do?

I actually listen to a lot of hiphop...and no not Will Smith...though Summertime is fun on occasions! I listen to Jay-Z (old school) and Wu-Tang, MF Doom, NWA, etc...but not my main type of music. I am not trying to sound like some old fart here...but the President of the US shouldnt have Jay-Z performing at his inauguration. Kayne can be controversial...but his songs havent been as violent/ materialistic as Jay-Z's.

When Bill O'Reilly gave out shit to Pepsi for hiring Ludacris as a spokesperson I was appalled as that was ridiculous...its a can of Soda! But the President of the US should propel a better image to the youth of this confused country as who our role models should be.

At the same time...please someone do away with Sheryl Crow and Will.I.Am!!

Posted by Anonymous | January 22, 2009 11:35 AM

Why are rap lyrics constantly brought up as being inappropriate? Jay-Z and most other rappers come from poverty and have grown up surrounded by drugs and the culture expressed in their lyrics. Deeming their songs unworthy because they are former drug dealers or sing about champagne is completely ignorant. Hip-hop is an essential part of our culture in America, and there is no doubt that it did not contribute to the election of a black president, so it is completely necessary that a rapper such as Jay Z was present to help celebrate

who cares where the musicians are from, everyone's just happy that there is a new leader running the most powerful country in the world. America is no longer a clown operation.

Posted by Anonymous | January 22, 2009 4:22 PM

We have this 'new' thing called the internet. On it, you can find information on practically anything, and with greatest respect, I would encourage people to do so before firing off a comment. I will try to hold myself to the same standard. Deal? Great!

That said, Arcade Fire were selected because they have been open and vocal supporters of Obama, and played a number of rallies for him throughout the campaign (I was at one of them). It should be noted also that a person does not have to be a citizen of a particular country to support a good cause, and non-citizenship should not be a litmus test for such things. Consider the world's support for Nelson Mandela in previous years--was being a non-citizen of South Africa a good enough reason to remain silent?

As for "Born in the U.S.A.," it is a song about a patriotic person being asked to fight a war, the ethical nature of which is murky at best--and then being abandoned and rejected by all sides on retuning home. In effect, the song suggests that patriotism must be tempered by ethics and justice. Does this not seem familiar, if not apropos to our current situation?

Best regards to all--

Todd

Uh... Win Butler wasn't just "Born in Texas". He *is Texan*. He identifies himself as American. Same goes for Will. Régine's a US citizen, and her father served in the Vietnam war.

None of which matters, at all. If every member of Arcade Fire had spent their entire lives until this point in the bloody Belgian Congo, they would still have had a stake in this election. It matters who's in charge of the most powerful country on the planet, and it matters to everyone.

It's immensely dispiriting to me that now of all times, after eight years of having that lip-sucking halfwit at the wheel, people still haven't quite realised how globally-minded the American presidency has to be.

There's an Atlantic between my house and the White House, the decisions made there will still affect me, same as they'll affect Jeremy Gara.

Didn't we already have all these conversations when Arcade Fire started cheerleading Obama in the first place?

Todd at 4:22 thanks for the post you summed it up.

Man, it's unbelievable that on such an important day that there are still a bunch of jackasses south of the 49th that would call your neighbour to the north "2nd class english and french" (10:29). don't you realize that attitudes like this are why so many other countries in the world get pissed at your outlooks sometimes? This is exactly the stuff that Obama will hopefully NOT IDEALIZE!!!

Look, I think you have a fantastic country with an amazing new leader that will hopefully help to bring some GLOBAL change. I also have travelled all over the world and think that every country I've visited is amazing. And you know what? I don't want to live in any other country - including yours - except Canada. But I don't flaunt that or belittle other countries, and I don't make that choice because I think Canada is "better." - it's just my home. America the Land of the Free? Sure...but go hang out in British Columbia, or Australia, or New Zealand, or Norway, or Scotland, or countless other places - you'll realize much of the rest of the world is pretty darn Free too - maybe moreso!

So let's get to the point - who gives a crap where Arcade Fire is from (and yes, the group is a mix of Canadian and American citizens), and just relish in the fact that your new leader has captured the attention of people around the world - just bask in that wonder, and be proud of it!!!

A disgruntled Canuck (and huge Arcade Fire fan)

"Why are rap lyrics constantly brought up as being inappropriate? Jay-Z and most other rappers come from poverty and have grown up surrounded by drugs and the culture expressed in their lyrics."


It's not about Jay-Z and other hustlers getting in on all the action. It's the fact they've been contributing AS MUCH AS DUBYA to the demise of culture in this country.

It's not about "talking about what you know". It's about GLORIFYING materialism, misogyny and violence.

Moreover folks like him have also contributed to the dissolution of integrity in music -- the ripping off of songs and covers and wholesale sampling (thanks to greedy lawyers) to make a buck that Rockafella has done. Utter bullshit.

But hey, lets not be critical of Jay-Z 'cause he's a brotha who grew up poor in Brooklyn. Eff that. We have our "black" president. No more excuses.

Hear, hear. Totally agree. This PC notion of being totally cool with rap "musicians" glorifying sexism, violence and consumerism of the worst kind, because it's their "culture" (wtf?), is total bullshit. Actually, it's fucking offensive. Also, I somehow doubt that Obama is really a fan of Jay-Z - he just says it to score political points and be down with the kids.

Dear America,

Please bear in mind that Canada has been the only thing that's protected you from Sarah Palin all this time. Your brave, freakishly well-spoken Northern neighbour kept her at bay as long as it could, until her turkey-strangling insanity became too great for even Alaska itself to contain.

I think they deserve more credit on the world stage than they've gotten for that alone.

Must this piece of trash continue to mention his drug dealing? Doesnt he realize these idiot kids want to be like him and probally feal they need to do what he has done? Why must he call himself HOVA? That was the name he wrote on his heroin packets. What a loser. And great job by the Yankees/NY adopting his new retarded song as their anthem, all he does is claim he made yankee hats more famous than Jeter, Arod, Mantle, Ruth, Gehrig, etc. Oh and he of course has to mention his drug dealing past. What a loser. Beyonce could have done much better.

I thought I saw on one of those television shows how Al Quada and other terrorist groups can use public sites to send messages to each other. For instance, I would imagine they might use a post to an old thread on BV ..... like the ones directly above this one.

I was there, and it changed my life. What an event to make up for the purple tunnel of doom. What a way to end 10 months of soul-breaking work. With the Arcade Fire, Jay-Z, Cal Penn, Jill and Joe Biden (and sister), Barack and Michelle and 3,998 other folks who deserved to be there just as much as I did.

Good job team OFA!

well I always said, Bao is one of the best. Maybe he can get on the staff at the white house as one of the official photographers? I think he would do a great job documenting a presidency.
