Arcade Fire is finally heading to Houston on May 4 for a date up at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, in the Woodlands. Last Sunday the band played upsetters at the Grammys winning the award for Album Of The Year for their album The Suburbs which was based on frontman Win Butler's childhood in the Woodlands in the '80s and '90s.
Opening for Arcade Fire in May will be Austin post-rockers Explosions In The Sky. Other openers on this spring tour included Local Natives, The National, and Okkervil River, but Houston snagged the leg with EITS.
This will be Arcade Fire's only third appearance in Houston since forming. The band previously played Mary Jane's Fat (now Pearl Bar) in June 2004 and January 2005 while touring behind Funeral.
