Not only are they reuniting, but they're opening for Arcade Fire at a show I already had tickets to. And Dan Deacon is opening as well.
3 years ago I said Arcade Fire + Dan Deacon + The Unicorns would be my absolute dream lineup. A fucking miracle happened today. Utterly incredible.

I'm going to be at a wedding in northern Ontario so I won't be able to make the trip to New York. I AM SO SAD.

I hope we will have some decent footage and good surprises in the setlists...

By the way what album would you recommend as the prefect Dan Deacon introduction ?

Do you think this is a legitimate reunion, or just the dates mentioned?

-- “We just recently obtained the master rights for [WWCOHWWG?] so, we're technically administering it. We had talked about remastering [it] and including some other recordings that never made it out. All of that requires another level of organization.” -- Alden Penner

“We might arrange a handful of shows,” Penner said. “We’re definitely talking about playing together and seeing what happens. And we’ll probably do some shows in the major cities we’ve played in–probably Toronto, Montreal, New York, L.A., Vancouver—that sort of thing. Whatever’s feasible and it being conditional on it being fun for us to do.” -- Alden Penner

“The important thing right now is that we might play some shows and maybe even record some new material while we're at it. These are all maybes, which have been thrown out there a lot. I guess good practice is that you do what you say.” -- Alden Penner

Sounds like they will only play a handful of shows and continue with their respective projects, but will reissue WWCOHWWG? (as Nick's new artwork suggests) and maybe MAYBE will also include some new or "new" but actually old but never studio recorded before bonus tracks.

As for Dan Deacon, this is all you need to know: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFlBJ1xZK10

"Let Me Sleep" bonus track is even better than the demo. Nice Clues vibe with Nick's voice.
Great to have good sound for Haunted House as well.

For the remastered tracks, I can't really hear the difference with the original ones...

Any idea of the setlist for arcade Fire opening show ?
