Arcade Fire‘s Win Butler gave Manchester clubbers a surprise last night as he showed up unannounced to one of the city’s long-running club nights.

The ‘Everything Now‘ band are currently in the UK for their Infinite Content tour. They will perform a sold out show at Manchester Arena tonight (April 8), before playing four further dates in London, Birmingham, and Glasgow.

With a day off before in the north west before the tour started, Butler used his free time to play a secret DJ set at the weekly Girls On Film night, held at the Deaf Institute. According to reports, he showed up with just a MacBook and a bottle of whiskey, and selected songs for two hours.

In the frontman’s set were tracks by the likes of Barry White, MIA, The Rapture, Can, Sylvester, Human League, Donna Summer, and Blondie. Butler, who DJs under the name DJ Windows 98, also dropped The Austin Klezmoirim’s ‘Birobidjan’, which is said to have seen the dancefloor be taken over by Balkan dance moves.

I actually just cried real tears finding out win butler was at deaf institute all the while I was actually in town but didn’t know I’m so upset

Elsewhere in his set, the musician also selected the likes of Abba’s ‘Dancing Queen’, Eddie Grant’s ‘Electric Avenue’, and Tom Tom Club’s ‘Genius Of Love’. He finished his set with a live version of Foreigner’s ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’.

In Dublin on Friday (April 6), Arcade Fire paid tribute to The Cranberries’ Dolores O’Riordan with a cover of the band’s hit song ‘Linger’. The frontwoman was found dead in a hotel room in London in January. She was 46 years old.

Arcade Fire released their fifth studio album ‘Everything Now’ last year. They promoted it with a campaign filled with “dress codes” at their shows, a series of fake news stories, and claims to be selling to a $109 fidget spinner. The campaign saw mixed reactions, and Butler has since said people didn’t get the joke.
