Arcade Fire

Rarely do the Grammy Awards hold any pleasant surprises, but this year’s Album of the Year trophy going to Canadian indie-rockers Arcade Fire for their 2010 release The Suburbs certainly qualifies. And the multi-dimensional crew has offered all sorts of surprises over the course of its career. Their elegiac 2004 debut, Funeral, introduced an altogether new sound to the pop landscape, inspiring Rolling Stone to later proclaim it the best album of the ‘00s. Follow-up Neon Bible was a more difficult listen in many ways, but their live tour in support that stopped at Thanksgiving Point was what surprised me and turned me into a fan—Arcade Fire are a truly inspired, and inspiring, live act. Their move into arenas on their most recent tours was a natural progression, only surprising to anyone who hasn’t seen their outsized stage show. Local Natives open the show this time around. UCCU Center, 800 W. University Parkway, Orem, 7 p.m., $35-$40
