Arcade Fire Cover Neil Young’s ‘Come On Baby Let’s Go Downtown’

Arcade Fire were in Winnipeg last night, and that means another cover of a hometown hero: this time it was the Neil Young classic ‘Come On Baby Let’s Go Downtown.’

Since frontman Win Butler was in one of the band’s trademark gigantic paper mache masks (that would be Pope Francis), instrumentalist Tim Kingsbury lent vocals to a slightly sped up version of the song off of Young’s 1975 album, ‘Tonight’s the Night.’

Unlike some of the other fan-shot videos of recent covers (like Feist‘s ‘I Feel it All‘ in Calgary and Dead Kennedys‘ ‘California Uber Alles‘ in Santa Barbara), this one has pretty decent audio. Check it out above.

Meanwhile, Arcade Fire premiered their official Win Butler-directed video for ‘You Already Know’ yesterday. Watch that right here:
