Published Aug 18, 2014Arena indie rockers Arcade Fire have been delivering an endless stream of live covers on their latest tour, and the gimmick continued last night (August 17) in Washington, DC, with a rendition of Fugazi's "Waiting Room."
Paying homage to the legendary post-hardcore icons and their hometown of DC, a bobbleheaded Win Butler led his troupe through the cover. Fugazi now join the likes of Nirvana, Huey Lewis and the News and Neil Young and Crazy Horse on the roster of artists that Arcade Fire have covered on this leg of the tour.
The Montreal outfit have been on the road in support of the Polaris Music Prize-nominated Reflektor for the better part of the year, but will wrap it up in their hometown on August 30 at Parc Jean Drapeau. You can see the remaining dates here and view footage of the "Waiting Room" cover below.
