On Tuesday (Mar. 29), the band played a brief secret show in Haiti -- a country near to the members' hearts, given their charitable contributions to Earthquake relief there as well as singer Régine Chassagne's Haitian ancestry.
In the intimate, impromptu performance at Port-au-Prince's Hotel Oloffson, Arcade Fire ripped into a wide variety of covers, reportedly including: Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Who'll Stop The Rain," and the Rolling Stones' "The Last Time." Of course, the Canadian group also played favorites from its three albums, including the Chassagne-led "Haiti" from the band's 2004 debut. Watch the rousing performance below, as well as the band's rolicking Rolling Stones cover, on which Will Butler takes the vocal lead.

Arcade Fire was reportedly in Haiti to help produce a DVD with local band RAM, led by Hotel Oloffson owner Richard Morse. The band has reportedly raised more than $1 million for Haitian earthquake relief efforts during its 2010-2011 tour dates.
