Is there any doubt that Arcade Fire can pretty much do whatever they want at the moment? The Montreal-based band has become nothing short of a phenomenon, with an ambition and reach far beyond that of their peers. So when it was revealed that they would follow their appearance on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend with a half hour concert, it was just another example of the far reaching vision for their music. And it went down last night, and if you missed it, here's your morning brew.

Is there any doubt that Arcade Fire can pretty much do whatever they want at the moment? The Montreal-based band has become nothing short of a phenomenon, with an ambition and reach far beyond that of their peers. So when it was revealed that they would follow their appearance on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend with a half-hour concert, it was just another example of the far-reaching vision of their music. It went down last night, and if you missed it, here's your morning brew.

Directed by Roman Coppola, the video actually appears to be a document of the secret show they played a few weeks back in Montreal, interspersed with appearances by James Franco, Bill HaderZach Galifianakis, Bono, Rainn Wilson, Ben Stiller, Michael Cera, Aziz Ansari and Eric Wareheim. Among the tunes they played were "Here Comes The Night Time," "We Exist," and "Normal Person." All of these are in addition to the "Reflektor" and "Afterlife" singles they played on the show. Either way, it's a decent bit of stuff to get your Sunday rolling, so check it out below.

Reflektor arrives in stores on October 29th.
