How weird it is that little indie label Merge Record's little indie band Arcade Fire is playing the "headline' spot on the Grammys? I guess no more weird than them winning Album of the Year, which they just did!
Singer Win Butler looks simply buoyant at winning. I mean, he's smiling ear-to-ear, looking genuinely happy, as they play "Ready to Start" to close the show. Indie and punk rock have sure come a long way.
Congrats to Arcade Fire. Congrats to Mac MacCaughan, Laura Ballance and our little Merge Records.
