If you missed out on tickets to see Arcade Fire this spring and want to do something good for the world, you're in luck: the band is recruiting volunteers for dates on its upcoming tour. In exchange for free admittance, these honorable folks (and/or cheapskates) will promote Haiti-focused nonprofit organizations Kanpe and Partners in Health to the assembled crowds of hipster kids standing with their arms. Folded. Tight.
No strangers to Haitian advocacy (co-leader Régine Chassagne's parents are Haitian immigrants), the Grammy heroes played a small, surprise show this week in Port-au-Prince — evidence of which can be found in this video of the group performing "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," for some reason.
