Arcade Fire on SNL

Supposedly the band played an impromptu concert for the live audience after the credits rolled.

Want to to know why Arcade Fire ran off the stage during the closing credits of “Saturday Night Live” last night?Because, in something that is apparently rarely done at Studio 8H, they played a mini-concert for the audience. Making up the front row of the 3-song set was Seth Meyers, Amy Poehler, Fred Armisen, Bill Hader and Andy Samberg, all looking absolutely transfixed by this band. The Fire has some high-powered fans, for sure, and converted a good chunk of the audience last night as well.

They’re playing at the Tower on 5/5/07 (Jake’s birthday), but I bet it’s going to sell out really quick.

Update: Boooo NBC for taking down all record of the performance.
