Arcade Fire at 1STBANK Center, 4/9/11

ARCADE FIRE With Local Natives 04.09.11 | 1STBANK Center View Arcade Fire photo slide show

The trailer for the 1979 film Over the Edge, which featured a fourteen-year-old Matt Dillon in his film debut, played on the screen behind the stage at 1STBANK Center just before Arcade Fire came on Saturday night. The film, which was supposedly shot in Aurora and Greeley, has been hailed as the "greatest teen rebellion movie of all time" by Vice magazine and was apparently the inspiration for Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" video.
