Thu 8 Nov – The Arcade Fire, Wild Light
I love this Band... and they were great in the concert, but no the atmosphere around them. Also, the setlist was amazing (although they forgot to play "Crown of love" or "Ocean of noise").
The beginning was a big song, "Black Mirror", but not a starting song, maybe setting "Keep The Car Running" as the first song played and "Black Mirror" as the second could have been a better choice... then, we will have to wait to "Laika" and "Intervention" to see the people feeling the music... although they were playing really good.
By then, I was nearly the middle of the local, and my friend and I decided to get near the first row, and there the feeling was much better, pleople jumping and dancing... and then: "Tunnels", "Power Out", "Rebellion", "Wake Up"... a great great band, but the atmosphere in Madrid during the SummerCase was a million times better, more than 30.000 people watching the show, and nearly the half of them jumping and singing all the time... in Berlin less than 5.000, and only 1.000 singing...
PD: As I said, nice concert... and nice city. Back in Spain after four days in Berlin, and maybe the best city I've ever been to, I love it ;)
