Arcade Fire Cover Neil Young’s* “Come On Baby Let’s Go Downtown” in Winnipeg Last Night
Arcade Fire covered Danny Whitten's “Come On Baby Let’s Go Downtown,” last night in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
A fitting tribute to Winnipeg's Neil. (*Though Neil Young did get a secondary writing credit for contributing the "Sure enough they'll be selling stuff ..." verse - Thanks Anon!)
Not sure about the paper mâché heads tho?

Remembering Danny Whitten and Bruce Berry...
Neil Young's 1975 "Tonight's The Night" is considered to be his 'darkest' album - both literally and figuratively - and the last of the "Ditch Trilogy" (along with Times Fade Away and On The Beach). The album explores the depth of Neil's pain over the heroin overdose deaths of Crazy Horse's Danny Whitten and roadie Bruce Berry.
