The eclectic and highly theatrical
band from Canada blends musical influences as varied as hard rock, bossa nova, French
chanson, rara and punk. In just a few short years, Arcade Fire has gone from a favorite
of those-in-the-know (one critic called them a cross between a Clash concert
and Cirque du Soleil), to a Grammy-winning international success.
