Now that they've won an album of the year Grammy, and had one of their iconic anthems soundtrack the trailer for the Where The Wild Things Are movie, the Arcade Fire will bring a quiver to bleacher bums' lips by singing "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" at Wrigley Field.

According to the Chicago Reader's Twitter account, the melodramatic indie-rock superstars will sing the seventh inning stretch at Wrigley Field on Saturday, when the Cubs are scheduled to play the Los Angeles Dodgers. So if you see Cubs fans becoming emotional during the seventh inning, you'll know it's not just because of the team's ho-hum showing.

Alright, since it sucks outside, and the CTA is falling apart, who's ready just to let it all out? Let Chicagoist be your shoulder to cry on. It's all gonna be alright, kids. Just hang on.
