During the first night of Arcade Fire’s three-night residency in Brooklyn, Buster Poindexter himself, New York Dolls frontman David Johansen, joined the band to perform his 1987 classic “Hot Hot Hot”. For night two, Win Butler and co. welcomed another punk legend to the stage.
Marky Ramone, the last surviving member of The Ramones’ classic lineup, played drums for Arcade Fire as they performed “I Don’t Wanna Go Down to the Basement” and “I Wanna Be Sedated”. Watch fan-footage below.
Prior to their on-stage collaboration, the band fooled the audience into thinking Talking Heads were the night’s special guest by having the bobbleheads sing along to “Psycho Killer”.
Update: As ArcadeFireTube points out, actress Emma Stone dressed as the “YOLO-man bobblehead” during last night’s show.
If Arcade Fire is looking for suggestions for night three, I hear David Bowie is local.
