live in haiti: arcade fire

It turns out that Sean Penn isn't alone down in earthquake-devastated Haiti. Arcade Fire performed at Port-Au-Prince's world famous Hotel Oloffson (where Bordain resided while in Haiti). The Grammy-winners are notable contributors in raising funds towards the relief efforts of the 2010 quake.

The band performed an atypical set of 12 classics. Not only did they perform their own hits, but also they included a few outstanding covers. They appropriately opened with a cover of Creedence Clearwater Revivals "Who Will Stop The Rain" (the 3rd World is a rough place).

A little scratchy, but their cover of Rolling Stones' "The Last Time" surely summoned a well-deserved party.




To avoid playing "Haiti", in Haiti, would be sacrilege.




Full Set List:

"Who'll Stop The Rain" (Creedence Clearwater Revival cover)
"Keep The Car Running"
"The Last Time" (Rolling Stones cover)
"Crucified Again"
"Ocean Of Noise"
"The Tide Is High" (The Paragons/Blondie cover)
"Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" (Cyndi Lauper cover)
"Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)"
"Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)"
"Rebellion (Lies)"
"Haiti"
"Wake Up"
