Arcade Fire’s Win Butler will be back in NYC under his DJ Windows 98 guise for a show at club/dim sum restaurant 88 Palace Baby’s All Right on Saturday, May 7. (UPDATE: Note the last-minute venue change to Baby’s.) He’ll be accompanied by live percussion which sounds pretty interesting. Tickets are on sale now and flyer for the show is below.

Meanwhile, you can also catch Arcade Fire drummer Jeremy Garza, who has a new solo record, at Trans-Pecos on May 17 (tickets).

In other news, video has surfaced of an early Arcade Fire performance that took place in Toronto on March 2003, which is about a year and a half before the release of their debut album, Funeral. They played as a four-piece with Win, Regine Chassagne, Tim Kingsbury, and Dane Mills and you can watch them play “No Cars Go” which was on their debut EP from that year (and would resurface on 2007’s Neon Bible). Watch that below.
