Above, the ever-fierce Merrill Garbus (dba tUnE-yArDs) takes on Sonic Youth's "The Burning Spear" at last night's Our Band Could Be Your Concert, the multi-actmusical tribute
to the bridge between the DIY pioneers chronicled in Michael Azerrad'sOur Band Could Be Your Life
andindie acts of today
. A few other clips from the evening--including a couple of Nirvana covers, in a nod to Azerrad'sbio of the band
--after the jump.
St. Vincent: "Bad Penny"/"Kerosene" (Big Black) (also: whoa)
Titus Andronicus: "Treatment Bound" (The Replacements)
Ted Leo: "Filler" (Minor Threat)
Dirty Projectors (Black Flag)
tUnE-yArDs with Wye Oak and Dirty Projectors - "Lithium" (Nirvana)
Dan Deacon with Wye Oak and Dirty Projectors - "Negative Creep" (Nirvana)
NPR was apparently there with its recording equipment, so those interested parties shut out of the Bowery Ballroom last night will be able to listen in on the proceedings in non-YouTube form. Which is good because I haven't found the Mudhoney set yet, and I am very very curious. UPDATE: Here you go.
