Though many people might not know who Arcade Fire is, the band certainly got everyone’s attention during two very eccentric performances of new songs on ‘Saturday Night Live’ on Sept. 28.

Tina Fey was the perfect person to kick off the new season of Saturday Night Live on Sept. 28, but it turns out that the musical guest, Arcade Fire, may have stole the show away from the hilarious host with a flashy, psychedelic show.

Arcade Fire Rocks ‘SNL’

In between Tina mocking her Emmys nip slip and Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul popping up in almost every skit, the indie rock band Arcade Fire had the spotlight, and they used it to perfection.

The seven-piece ensemble performed two new songs for the first time — their single “Reflektor” and also “Afterlife” — but it’s not what they sang that raised eyebrows, it’s how they did it.

The innovative band put on two eccentric performances for the new tracks. For “Reflektor,” which had a running time of almost eight minutes, co-lead singer Regine Chassagne migrated into a cage-like structure built out of glass and mirrors, turning the song’s title into a real-life visualization.

And they nearly topped themselves playing “Afterlife.” For the groovy song, all the band members wore bright white outfits, and lead singer Win Butler pulled off a shocking look with black paint strewn across his eyes. Arcade Fire may not be what you’re used to, but you have to admit that you can’t look away when they take the stage.

Watch both of Arcade Fire’s performances below and tell us, HollywoodLifers, are you now a fan?
