Arcade Fire - Kiss Off (Violent Femmes cover)

I know it's like a ghost town around here in regards to music posts, but I am drowning in the Oscar season, so don't expect too many music updates until my year-end lists, which will commence the first week of December. In the meantime though, here is another good band covering a great old song, following Subtle's rendition of Shellac's not-so-subtle "Prayer to God" from earlier this week. This time though it's those neon bible thumpers the Arcade Fire taking on the Violent Femmes' geeky-and-proud-of-it classic "Kiss Off" captured by a lucky soul after their performance at their Randall Island show, which happen to include be the insane triple bill of openers, Les Savy Fav, LCD Soundsystem and Blonde Redhead.
