Arcade Fire Burned Mekka Miami Down as the Reflektors

Arcade Fire as the Reflektors

Mekka, Miami

Better Than: Catching your favorite indie-band-made-big in some giant auditorium.

Arcade Fire first hit the scene, changing the sound of indie music forever, back in the early 2000s. Musical force Régine Chassagne is a first-generation Haitian emigrant, and apparently, she and co-founding husband Win Butler are totally in love with Little Haiti, but in all this time, they've never made it to Miami.

All that changed last night when this little band called the Reflektors came through Mekka (of all places), but we all knew who that really was.

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

UPDATE #2 Arcade Fire Announces Reflektor Tour 2014, Skips Miami
