Watch: Arcade Fire's 22-Minute 'SNL' Concert, Directed By Roman Coppola, Featuring Ben Stiller, James Franco & More

Is there any doubt that Arcade Fire can pretty much do whatever they want at the moment? The Montreal-based band has become nothing short of a phenomenon, with an ambition and reach far beyond that of their peers. So when it was revealed that they would follow their appearance on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend with a half-hour concert, it was just another example of the far-reaching vision of their music. It went down last night, and if you missed it, here’s your morning brew.

Directed by Roman Coppola, the video actually appears to be a document of the secret show they played a few weeks back in Montreal, interspersed with appearances by James Franco, Bill HaderZach GalifianakisBono, Rainn Wilson, Ben Stiller, Michael Cera, Aziz Ansari and Eric Wareheim. Among the tunes they played were “Here Comes The Night Time,” “We Exist,” and “Normal Person.” All of these are in addition to the “Reflektor” and “Afterlife” singles they played on the show. Either way, it’s a decent bit of stuff to get your Sunday rolling, so check it out below.

Reflektor arrives in stores on October 29th.

People actually sop this shi* up

Arcade Fire is the shi*tiest fuc*ing band on the planet. I might steal Reflektor, wipe my ass with it and put it back on the shelf just so that a few people in my neighborhood will know that Arcade Fire is pretentious monotonous unoriginal boring ass sh*t.


This is awesome.


I think it`s awful they criticize other artists like mumford and sons and michael bublé even though they`re bad but imagine that their following album is really bad, I mean, they`re sounding kinda full of themselves in this video. However the video is awsome visually, very well directed and it`s tottaly cool! they`re awsome I kinda forgive them!
