Listen to Arcade Fire on iHeartRadio

Indie rockers Arcade Fire apparently aren't above pranking their fans. 

According to "Rolling Stone," the band's Friday night gig in Brooklyn started with LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy telling the crowd that there was a "little snafu" and they weren't ready to go on. 

He introduced another group dubbed "the Reflektors" to play in the interim, and a trio of people wearing large papier-mache head-masks took the stage for a few minutes.  But just as the Reflektors left, a curtain opened to reveal a much larger stage at the opposite end of the venue where the real Arcade Fire kicked things off with their latest single, "Reflektor." 

The band played for about an hour before they stopped the live portion of the event and kicked off a dance party DJed by frontman Win Butler. 

Arcade Fire will stay in New York for their next gig.  The band - once again listed as "The Reflektors" - is scheduled to appear on "The Colbert Report" Monday night.  The show starts at 11:30 p.m. Eastern on Comedy Central.
