Arcade Fire Played a Surprise Show in Haiti This Week

The most popular band that no one’s ever heard of performed a surprise show in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, on Tuesday night. The Grammy winners ran through twelve tracks, including “Wake,” “Haiti” and covers of the Rolling Stones and Credence Clearwater Revival during a 45-minute set. Rolling Stone, conveniently on hand to capture footage of the performance, revealed that the Canadian band was actually in town to produce a DVD with Haitian band RAM.

The group has been fairly outspoken about their charity efforts to support the earthquake-ravaged country. Last February, they teamed up with the NFL and Partners In Health to broadcast the Funeral single “Wake Up” during Super Bowl XLIV. Licensing proceeds were all donated to Haiti.
