Arcade Fire to play in charity basketball game at POP Montreal

On Saturday, September 24, several members of Arcade Fire will participate in POP Montreal's first annual POP vs. JOCK Charity Basketball Game.

Brothers Win and Will Butler will show off their prowess on the basketball court, and RĂ©gine Chassagne will provide musical accompaniment on organ during the game. Richard Reed Parry will also premiere his bicycle symphony titled "DRONES/Revelations" during the halftime show. All proceeds from this event will benefit DJ Sports Club, a non-profit in Montreal that offers programs in sports and education to youth between 7 and 17 years of age. Tickets and more information can be found here.

Although their POP Montreal appearance at Metropolis is sold out, the band will be playing a free hometown show on September 22 at Place des Festivals in Quartier des Spectacles.

The deluxe edition of Arcade Fire's Grammy-winning album The Suburbs is available now on CD+DVD and digital download from the Merge store and your favorite retail outlets.
