Twitter user ArcadeFiretube’s posts serve as evidence that this secret event took place. The user wrote:

@ArcadeFiretube Arcade Fire, as Les Identiks, played new songs at a secret show last night at the @breakglass_ Studio in Montreal.

Normally, we at mxdwn would search high and low for a video or sound clip to share with you. But unfortunately the event had a strict no photo and no recording policy. According to Stereogum, one slick fan failed at an attempt and the result was the fan’s phone being thrown against the wall.

@ArcadeFiretube No video, no photo and no phones policy at the secret gig last night. Confirmed. #ArcadeFire #LesIdentiks

Apparently, this is how the show went:

@ArcadeFiretube New songs: Heavy use of percussion/rhythm section / Only 1 slow song / 1 punk rock-ish song / A 7-8 minute song opened the show.
