Arcade Fire’s string of geographically appropriate covers continued last night in Toronto, where they covered “Young Lions” by the rugged, recently reunited Toronto post-punk masters the Constantines. (They previously covered Prince in Minneapolis and Stevie Wonder in Detroit.) Win Butler also loaded up another disgraced local politician on his video mask as in Detroit; this time it was Toronto’s crack-smoking Mayor Rob Ford, of course. Watch a clip of the Constantines cover and a video of Ford’s cameo below.

Arcade Fire’s tour is on to Ottawa tonight, home of Alanis Morissette plus Arcade Fire members Jeremy Gara and Richard Reed Perry. In the meantime, if you’ve never listened to the first couple Constantines albums, do yourself a favor and rectify that.
