Arcade Fire sneaking into Miami for a secret show?
Word on the street is that the Rhythm Foundation is bringing the hipster tribe to perform in Miami on Oct. 24.
If you come across the news while surfing the net that The Reflektors is playing a show Oct. 24 in Miami, you might automatically think “no big deal.” Probably a local blues band, or maybe a ska-revival act.
You couldn’t be more wrong. All clues point to the band being none other than Canadian art-rock collective Arcade Fire, which won the 2011 Album of the Year Grammy for its third disc, “The Suburbs.” It would be the first Florida performance by the group led by husband-and-wife team Win Butler and Regine Chassagne.
Clue No. 1: Arcade Fire’s fourth studio album – set to hit the streets Oct. 29 and featuring production work by James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) – is called “Reflektor.”
Clue No. 2: The Reflektors show is at the Little Haiti Cultural Center, to benefit the acclaimed monthly Haitian culture and music event Big Night in Little Haiti, sponsored by the super-cool Rhythm Foundation. Chassagne is of Haitian descent, and Arcade Fire has been heavily involved in fundraising for Haitian earthquake relief.
Clue No. 3: Arcade Fire tube, a fan twitter account, is all over the news, breathlessly speculating on ticket prices (the latest guess is $35).
