One of the most anticipated (and, to be honest, most hyped) records of 2010 is Arcade Fire's The Suburbs, hitting the racks and web on 3 August. Now comes word from Gorilla vs. Bear that the Montreal band's live gig at New York's world-famous Madison Square Garden will be broadcast on YouTube on the evening of 5 August. Rumors persist that a "well-known, as-yet-unnamed luminary" (Spike Jonze?) will be directing the festivities. In the meantime, view the cool little promo above.
UPDATE - 26 July: Consequence of Sound reports that ex-Monty Python Terry Gilliam will direct the proceedings from MSG.
