Arcade Fire have been doing covers specific to the location they're playing on their ongoing tour, and last night (August 17) at Verizon Center in Washington, DC they did an especially cool one. The band played Fugazi's "Waiting Room" with Win Butler wearing his paper mache mask during the performance - watch the video below. Fugazi joined 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 the current leg of the tour.
The Canadian band also had someone in Barack Obama paper mache mask on stage, which they first brought out in April at a show in Austin and again last night in the US capital.
Arcade Fire tour lands in NYC this weekend for shows on August 22, 23 & 24 at Barclays Center with the reunited Unicorns and Dan Deacon on all three dates, plus NYC punk legends Television on night 3. Tickets to all three NYC shows are still available.
