Arcade Fire Announces Second Miami Show at Mekka Nightclub

Yep. The Reflektors is Arcade Fire.

Yesterday, we here at Crossfade noticed a curious update on local world-music promoter Rhythm Foundation's website for a special edition of the monthly Big Night in Little Haiti at the Little Haiti Cultural Center starring a band that we'd never heard of.

Oddly, though, the Xerox cutout flyer looked a lot like Win Butler, Régine Chassagne, and the rest of the gang. Plus, there was a Arcade Fire vid embedded alongside the show listing. And Win and Régine's new album is titled Reflektor. And, and, and ...

Now the band's added a second Miami show at downtown's Mekka Nightclub.

UPDATE Arcade Fire's Reflektor show in Miami has sold out in under five minutes.

UPDATE #2 Some more tickets have just been released for the Little Haiti show.

UPDATE #3 Arcade Fire is reportedly returning to Miami for two nights in April 2014.

So far, Arcade Fire hasn't announced any official tour dates as the band prepares to release its fourth album, Reflektor, on October 29.

But details about two Miami concerts (in addition to two Brooklyn gigs, an appearance at Neil Young's Bridge School Benefit, and an L. A. show) have leaked after obscure clues began popping up across the Internet and Reflektor pre-orderers were tipped off.
