Arcade Fire Cover Nirvana in Washington State
When Arcade Fire's Reflektor Tour rolled into Washington's Gorge Amphitheatre on Friday night, the Canadian indie collective continued their covers hot streak with a medley of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and their own "Rococo," another song about teens trying to find their place in the world.
As you can tell from the man screaming in the fan-shot footage below, the Nirvana tribute wasn't terribly shocking -- Arcade Fire have been playing a region-appropriate cover for each stop of their Reflektor Tour. Highlights so far: Chuck Berry's "Roll Over Beethoven" in St. Louis, Prince's "Controversy" in Minneapolis, and the Beverly Hills Cop theme "Axel F" in L.A.
Arcade Fire's tour -- featuring Devo, the Unicorns and Tune-Yards as openers at different stops -- wraps Aug. 30 in Montreal.
