Our most anticipated band at Coachella did not disappoint. They mixed their new songs off the amazing "Neon Bible" with your faves from their debut, "Funeral".

And although we love love love "Neon Bible", the best moment in last night's performance was when singer Win Butler jumped into the crowd during "Rebellion (Lies)", never once wiping a smile on his face. Lighten up Win, they're cheering!

This clip was taken from the AT&T Blue Room's excellent video coverage that brought the world full sets from Bjork, Gogol Bordello, Regina Spektor, and many more including the Arcade Fire, of course, duh.

Here's the rest of the Coachella coverage you can find thru the AT&T Blue Room tonight:
