Arcade Fire is one of the most critically and commercially successful indie acts of all time — and the band’s touring behind Everything Now, the most divisive album of its storied catalog. After making a career of conjuring dynamic pop shapes from lush instrumentation and mingling various genres and approaches, the act’s latest release goes heavy on concept, leaving musical reinvention in the rearview. The result is music that keeps you at arm’s length; there’s a dry, almost academic detachment in its heady motives, which take aim at the soul-crushing future shock of living in a post-internet age drowned in information. Amid the album’s toothless new wave synths and electro posturing, it’s fair to ask: Is Arcade Fire finally slipping? Or could Everything Now be a promising omen of yet another gear shift, a stepping stone toward greater heights? We won’t know for sure until the next release hits shelves, but live performances are generally a good indicator of whether a band’s lost its spark. Here’s your chance to find out. Fellow Canadian indie rock group Wolf Parade opens the bill.
