ARCADE FIRE MEMBERS TO PLAY FREE SHOWS IN OHIO
Win Butler, Will Butler, Regine Chassagne and Jeremy Gara of the Arcade
Fire will be playing a free concert on Sunday, March 2nd at Stuart’s Opera
House in Nelsonville, Ohio in support of Barack Obama’s bid for the
Democratic nomination. The show is at 7 p.m., first come first serve.
They will also be playing a free show at the Beachland Ballroom in
Cleveland on Monday, March 3rd. Doors are at 7 p.m., and the show is 18
and over, first come first serve.
Though the Arcade Fire is known as a Canadian band, Win and Will were born and raised in the U.S. (and spent their formative years in Texas), Regine is a dual citizen whose dad served in Vietnam, and Jeremy Gara is just a really nice Canadian who likes playing music and is sick of explaining to Americans what universal health care means.
