Arcade Fire, K’naan Played A Charity Show In Toronto For Eric The Vampire

Arcade Fire

To coincide with TIFF 2012 the Arcade Fire, K’naan, Raine Maida and Chantal Kreviazuk performed at a fancy charity show to help Haiti put on by a group called Artists For Peace And Justice.

The party was filled with A-listers like Jude Law and Eric the vampire (Alexander Skarsgard).

Sarah was there. And when she wasn’t somehow constantly running afoul of Paul Haggis (dude, you’re not that important) she managed to write about it for Spinner.
