Sixth-graders do Arcade Fire

Posted on Mon, Oct 25, 2010 at 11:28 AM

Maybe I’m just feeling sentimental on this rainy Monday, but this video of the sixth-grade class at the Oaks school in Los Angeles playing Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up” back in February got me a little choked up just now.

Watch for yourself: 

Afterward, a father of one of the students made this follow-up video, in which the original video gets screened, and the school receives a signed poster and a letter from the Canadian indie juggernaut. (Check out the kid at about 3:55, who’s so excited he’s weeping.)

And, for reference, here's the band playing Wake Up at the Glastonbury Festival in the U.K. in 2007:
