3. Arcade Fire with Mavis Staples on the West Side on Wednesday night.

Kot: "Even when Regine Chassagne was singing about 'dead shopping malls' and punching clocks as a worker drone, balloons descended, streamers waved, and dancers twerked in skeleton suits.

"Arcade Fire is a major indie-rock success story and improbable album-of-the-year Grammy winners in 2013 that occasionally flirts with self-importance. But a giant dance party broke out Tuesday in the first of two concerts at the United Center, with the Montreal band leading the frivolity."

Guarino: "When Staples showed up, the band launched into two versions of 'This May Be the Last Time,' a gospel song recorded by her family band in 1954 and later, the Rolling Stones song released a decade later that borrowed the title. For the bookends - the first slow and swampy, the second a rock rave-up - Staples growled through her vocals, leading the band the entire way. ' want to go to that church,' Butler said upon her exit."
