    On Wednesday night, Arcade Fire headlined KANPE Karnival, marking their first live in Montreal since August 2014. The annual event celebrates Haitian culture and all proceeds The KANPE Foundation to support its mission in Haiti.

    The band’s eight-song set began  with the first live performance of “Windowsill” in nearly a decade. Appropriately, they also played “Haiti” as well as “Sprawl II”, “Neighborhood #3”, “Rebellion (Lies)”, and a cover of Boukman Eksperyans’ “Ke M Pa Sota”, before concluding with their quintessential track, “Wake Up”.

    Watch fan-shot footage below.
