The truly colorful and charitable Cyndi Lauper opted for all black attire when she surprised Arcade Fire’s audience at New Orleans Jazzfest on Friday by jumping on stage and joining the Grammy-winning band for a pair of jams. Before the band launched into “Girls Just Want To Have Fun,” Win Butler announced, “This is a song by one of our all-time favorite artists, Cyndi Lauper.” Enter the pop icon. Later Cyn took up backing vocal duty and strummed the dulcimer while the band played “Sprawl II.” Watch the musical meeting of the minds below.
