Around the same time that Lana Del Rey was attempting to win hearts with her Stevie Nicks-biting lounge singer act on SNL, Arcade Fire was on Austin City Limits reminding viewers that intensely hyped internet phenomenons sometimes do pay off.

It's a good set list, throwing in deep cuts like "Haiti" along with expected audience slayers like "Rebellion (Lies)" and "Wake Up." Imagine if LDR on SNL had a million times more energy and at least 10 times as much shouting, and you get the idea.
