KCRW to Air Live Arcade Fire Album Preview Performance
Monday, October 28 at 7pm

The band will play highlights from their highly anticipated album “Reflektor” the day before its release at Capitol Studios

(SANTA MONICA) October 28, 2013 — KCRW will air a live performance from Arcade Fire on Monday, October 28 at 7pm from Studio A at Capitol Studios here in Los Angeles, in conjunction with NPR Music.

The band will play songs from their highly anticipated new album, “Reflektor” the day before its release at the legendary music landmark, in addition to some old favorites. KCRW is one of a handful of NPR affiliates that has been selected to air this exclusive, hour-long broadcast.

Raul Campos will host this special programming, which will preempt Which Way, LA?, and Music Director Jason Bentley will be reporting live from the scene.

KCRW’s history with Arcade Fire started long before they were Grammy winners. In fact, the band performed live on Morning Becomes Eclectic in 2005 during their first trip to Los Angeles when they were in town to play the Troubadour.
This special programming is part of NPR Music’s “First Listen Live” series.
