The Montreal’s Society for Arts and Technology last night hosted a benefit concert for KANPE, the pro-Haiti charity that was co-founded by Arcade Fire’s Régine Chassagne. Régine, her husband Win Butler, and guitarist Richard Reed Parry performed as the house band performing alongside with David Byrne, Saul Williams, and Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
Arcade Fire have also confirmed three festival dates for the summer. During the time between, they will continue working on the follow-up to 2013’s Reflektor.
