Arcade Fire webcast tonight in new YouTube concert series

I'll hit up the weekend's activities later tonight, but I wanted to let you all know about the Arcade Fire webcast tonight starting at 10 PM ET.  Here is the link:

This is part of YouTube's new Upstaged series where they'll be streaming live concerts.  These sound pretty cool because the concerts will offer some unique features.  Here is what the YouTube blog says: "Each performance will not only be streamed live on YouTube, but it will also have unique on- and offline components to entertain fans -- for example, you may be able to vote on the encore performance or switch camera angles. And if you miss anything, no worries: the full show and highlights will be available on the artist’s channel soon after the show."

They've already got John Legend & The Roots lined up for future concets.
