It’s official: Arcade Fire band member Will Butler, younger brother to lead singer Win Butler, may release an LP as early as next year.
Will played a stage in Brooklyn at Baby’s All Right Friday night where he treated fans to a set of ten songs in the duration of 40 minutes.
“Take My Side” – Will Butler Live at Baby’s All Right.
The set was reportedly stripped down with Will momentarily switching between playing guitar and synthesizer and two additional singers provided backup vocals.
It cost $5.00 to see the show. Tickets sold out, too, which only seems right under the circumstances.
This isn’t the first time Will has meddled in projects outside Arcade Fire. Will shared the nomination for Best Original Score with fellow Canadian musician Owen Pallett at the 86th Academy Awards for Her.
They lost to Steven Price for Gravity, but still, a nomination is pretty cool, I guess.
Other Arcade Fire’ers have busted out their own side projects, as well. Richard Reed Parry released a classical album earlier this year called Music for Heart and Breath featuring performances by the Kronos Quartet and the Dessner twins from The National.

Arcade Fire Tube has enough stuff on their page to satiate any fan looking to watch the other videos from the night.
