Arcade Fire

Nearly a year after releasing their polarizing fourth full-length album, "Reflektor," rock's most bombastic Canadians are finally rolling their arena tour into Washington, and it's a high-art road show that features a house-of-mirrors set design, dancing papier-mache bobbleheads and a pesky fine-print request that concertgoers don formal attire. Band members have said they hope to transform arenas into clubby, intimate spaces; that may explain a set filled with the anthemic rock songs that played so well in their club days, including soaring singalongs such as "Wake Up" and tracks off their Grammy Award-winning album "The Suburbs."
