It was the biggest show of their lives....

Les Savy Fav, an obscure underground band, are invited to perform with The Arcade Fire, LCD soundsystem, Blond redhead, and Wild Light for an audience of 25,000 people on Randals Island in New York City. All the bands friends tell them that the concert is "the Show of The Year" and that how lucky they are to finally get a break. We document this important day.

Les Savy Fav are not playing CMJ, but Syd will make an appearance in Juiced Elfers at the Frenchkiss showcase.
