Arcade Fire, with tUnE-yArDs, Kid Koala 

When: Wed., April 23 2014

Arena rock shows aren't generally considered black-tie affairs, any more than kilts are the attire of choice at most funerals. But if any band is going to tell its audience to dress formally — and pay $70.50 for the privilege to do so — that would be Arcade Fire. The Montreal indie-pop band is doing just that in ads for its current tour. Meanwhile, critics are beginning to express doubts, as when the Washington Post recently insisted they "sound like gigantic dorks with boring sex lives." Bruised frontman Win Butler responded in a Rolling Stone interview that dorks don't play with Bowie and have Springsteen wanting to cover their songs. "I'm a fucking rock star," he concluded. So if you're all dressed up with nowhere to go, go pay your respects at 7:30 p.m. in the luxurious surroundings of the Pepsi Center (901 Auraria Pkwy., Denver, pepsicenter.com). — Bill Forman
