On Thursday, I was one of the very lucky ones to get into Adelaide Hall for the Arcade Fire’s after party.
Owen Pallett played an opening set.
DJ Win Butler played some funky tunes in between.
The boys of the Arcade Fire hopped on stage and played a set entirely of covers, including the The Talking Heads, the Rolling Stones, and The Beatles. They played a tremendous cover of “Helter Skelter.” Songs sounded brash and garagey, just the way I like it.
Despite being “sold out”, the venue was not at capacity. Making the Adelaide Hall tolerable.
