Saturday was a day of overall craziness in sweltering Indio, California, but sometime between sets by Erykah Badu and Broken Social Scene on the main Coachella stage, Paul Driscoll of FNX radio and I were able to grab a few tight minutes backstage with Will Butler of THE ARCADE FIRE.
The Canadian indie darlings and heralded Grammy-winners would later headline the big fort and give the endless sea of desert revelers a performance that kinda felt like their long-awaited public afterparty for The Suburbs taking down Album Of The Year a few months ago.
You'd have thought the stink over indie kids ARCADE FIRE winning Album of the Year at last night's Grammy's would have quieted down a bit, especially on a lover's morning such as this sweet and special Valentine's Day? Nope.People be like, Eminem-level of pissed off.
Have at it, angry folk: http://whoisarcadefire.tumblr.com/
