Arcade Fire Covers R.E.M. In Atlanta
Arcade Fire debuted a cover of R.E.M.’s “Radio Free Europe” as part of their encore last night at the Georgia venue. R.E.M. was formed and based in Athens, GA. A slowed-down recording of “Hey Ya” by Atlanta’s own Outkast played as actors (fans?) wearing bobbleheads mimed along before the real band took the stage for the encore. The evening’s setlist also featured just the third “Get Right” of the tour and the run’s fifth “Month Of May,” a fitting song considering the current month.
