Arcade Fire Fans Turn Out to Worship ‘Bible’

NEW YORK: The Neon Bible-wielding collective play first of five gigs at indie-rock church.

Arcade Fire kicked off their sold out five-show series Tuesday night at the Judson Memorial Church in full form. The Canadian indie collective delivered various songs from their upcoming album, Neon Bible, but nothing got the crowd of beer-clutching churchgoers moving like maniacally joyful Funeral classics “Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)” and “Rebellion (Lies).” As they danced about the stage, trading instruments and shouting through megaphones with infectious energy, the Win Butler-led crew donned such exceptional smiles, it was impossible to tell who was happier to be there: the band or its fans.
