Fresh off their Grammy and Juno victories, Arcade Fire played a surprise show on March 29th at the Hotel Oloffson in earthquake-battered Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. Rolling Stone was on hand to document the intimate, highly emotional gig, which included covers of songs by Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Rolling Stones and Cyndi Lauper as well as their own hits "Keep the Car Running," "Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)" and of course, "Haiti."

Haiti is a very important place to the Canadian band. Singer and multi-instrumentalist Régine Chassagne is the daughter of Haitian immigrants, and the group have raised over $1 million for post-earthquake relief efforts there.
