Hey Hey... I've got video as well. I fortunately was front and center and while my video might not be as clear, I do have Win's face perfectly in view. I could have touched him if I wanted.

um. walk back maybe? it took 25 min

Moichers

Great post! Getting there was a 15 minute, 15 dollar cab ride from the Upper East Side, no problem. Getting back was a horrific, 45 minute walk across the Triborough Bridge among a group of about 5000 crowded onto a walkway that could accommodate 3 across in a crowd that kept stopping for no good reason (yeah there was a traffic light, I know). I'd probably do it again for 4 of my favorite bands, but would leave earlier next time. But was there any good reason this couldn't have happened at Keyspan Park like the Daft Punk show?

DJA

I didn't mind the walk back across the bridge so much. It was a relief to get up on the Triborogh and finally feel a breeze. Yeah, there were some annoying stops and starts, but it was still way less of a hassle than any of the other options. Those buses looked like hell.

Your shots are amazing, Chris. I was there for the whole thing -- my writeup (accompanied by my feeble snaps from the crowd) is here:

Hey, I'm not being a hater (I was at the show to see them after all) but why is everyone on the internet babbling about how transcendental this show was? The Arcade Fire is a solid band and the set design was really good but, frankly, for having ten-abouts people on the stage you'd expect a lot more and I've seen plenty of shows with better sets. And as for antics and energies, les drummer boys deux that night have nothing on Tim Harrington of Les Savy Fav.
