And it sounds pretty darn good, particularly as a free download.

Merry Christmas from Arcade Fire! Or, more accurately, from the sonic entrepreneurs at the Naughty Dog label… On December 7 and 8 Arcade Fire brought their Reflektor tour to Oakland (Oracle Arena) and Los Angeles (Shrine Auditorium), respectively, to perform as featured guests at the annual KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas shows. The events were webcast, and naturally the tape decks and hard drives across the globe were getting it all down. You can see the setlist below:
The Arcade Fire songs from both nights have now been turned into a two-disc bootleg, and for the time being you can also nab ‘em over at the ever-discriminating ROIO portal known as The Big O as a free download in MP3 format (224 kbps); downloadable artwork is available there as well.
