Surprise, surprise - Arcade Fire churned out another cover at their tour stop in Winnipeg, Manitoba last night. This time, they did Neil Young's "Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown" (which was co-written by Crazy Horse compatriot Danny Whitten). with frontman Win Butler clad in full paper mâché and instrumentalist Tim Kingsbury contributing vocals. Check out the footage below, submitted by reader Nigel Thompson.

Past highlights from the band's cover spree include their takes on Jane's Addiction in Los Angeles, the Smiths in London, and R.E.M. in Atlanta.
