Arcade Fire Concert Dress Code: The Ultimate Guide
Still from Her Two peas in an OS pod.
You're into Arcade Fire, but you don't want to put in too much effort. No worries, you could always throw on one of those tuxedo T-shirts -- those are still a thing, right? Just kidding, no.
Take some inspiration from Her -- the movie, that is. Arcade Fire member Win Butler scored the movie with Owen Pallett, and they earned an Oscar nod for their work. Get inspired by Selleck-stached Theodore Twombly -- all you need are a button-down shirt, some khakis, and some thick facial hair. Or you can "dress up" as Theodore's friend Amy, the frizzy-haired documentarian who also becomes besties with her OS.
Or just dress like yourself and pretend you're in a relationship with your phone -- because honestly, who isn't?
Finally, if you like Arcade Fire, bought a ticket for their concert, and for some reason still don't want to dress up -- no worries. The band addressed the dress-code-gate controversy on their Facebook:
To everyone really upset about us asking people to dress up at our shows... please relax. It's super not mandatory. It just makes for a more fun carnival when we are all in it together. So far these have been the best shows we have ever played. See you soon. Love, Arcade Fire
Here's Arcade Fire's "Afterlife" lyric video mixed with Marcel Camus's Black Orpheus in the background to get you in the mood for fanfare at the show:
