Lecturing Arcade Fire
Arcade Fire will be guest lecturers at the University of Texas in Austin on March 19th. Band members Win Butler, Regine Chassagne, Will Butler and Marika Anthony-Shaw will talk about the economic and humanitarian crisis in Haiti. The band will also share their experiences as volunteers in Haiti and encourage students to get involved in ongoing relief efforts following the devastating earthquake there in 2010.
Arcade Fire have been outspoken in their support of Haiti, where singer and multi-instrumentalist Chassagne was born. They've raised well over $1 million for relief efforts over the past two years.
