Another Arcade Fire concert, another Arcade Fire cover. This time, Win Butler’s crew paid homage to the Pixies by covering “Alec Eiffel” during their show in Mansfield, MA on Monday night. (Pixies, of course, hail from neighboring Boston.)

During the show, Butler also gave a shout out to the Boston-based charity Partners in Health, which the band has been a longtime support of. “It’s the coolest thing that came out of Boston, aside from the Pixies,” Butler commented to the audience.

ICYMI, The Reflektor tour has also seen Arcade Fire cover songs by Nirvana, The Smiths,R.E.M.Feist, Neil Young, Dead Kennedys, Jane’s Addiction, Fugazi, and more.
