I just found out two days ago that, through a little secret deal making at last Saturday’s tail gate, I am going to the Arcade Fire show at The Key this coming Wednesday. I showed personal financial restraint in not running out and buying tickets for this show when they went on sale about a month ago, so maybe I’m being rewarded for being a good boy.

I’ve had “Neon Bible” on repeat for the last couple of days. I had forgotten how much I like this album. It is definitely the middle child in the band’s catalog as “The Funeral” was such a huge landmark for this organic, indie band from Montreal. The much awaited third album, “The Suburbs” was released this summer and has gained rave reviews, and scale tipping amounts of radio play. “Neon Bible” has lots of somewhat lost, or never totally found gems.

I’m guessing that the set on Wednesday will include maybe only about five tracks off of “Neon Bible” and based on a couple of setlists that I found, it might be asking too much to get to hear this song live.

My body is a cage
We take what we’re given
Just because you’ve forgotten, that don’t mean you’re forgiven
