Oops! Arcade Fire Performance In Haiti ALMOST Becomes A Biohazard!

arcade fire haiti mishap

Last month, we were SO pleased and impressed with the Arcade Fire, who performed an intimate, surprise show for fans in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti after raising $1 million for post-earthquake relief for the country.

We're still very happy with them, although it sounds like they had a bit of a mishap when frontman Win Butler tried to create a makeshift drum right before a performance at a refugee camp in Haiti.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"I spotted two red plastic wastebaskets just inside the clinic gates. One was mostly empty, so I dumped it out into the other one and brought it over. I thumped it experimentally. Sounded fine. I handed it to Jeremy. He thumped it. Sounded fine."

Butler went on to admit that that the wastebasket was labeled "Biohazard Medical Waste," and he immediately returned it to where it belongs.

More from Butler regarding the aftermath of his mistake:

"…That's why hand sanitizer is so exciting."

We're just glad everything seems to be okay!

Let that be a warning to everyone! When creating makeshift drums, ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS check for BIOHAZARD labels!

    It was actually Will, just so you know.

    That sounds 1000% more sanitary than the one night in Austin last year where 2000 people used 15 port-a-potties and there was piss running down the street.

    This band is a bunch of idiots. I'm ashamed they're Canadian.

    Funny story. But yeah, the dude running the blog is actually Will Butler, Win Butler's younger brother. He's the one you might see climbing onto or hanging off stuff. He's usually bleeding.
