Last year, Chris Maddin, myself, and a group of occasionally rotating local musicians embarked on a project to do a live cover of an entire album, top to bottom, as close to the source material as we could get. We also gave ourselves under a month to learn everything. It was a pretty daunting task, but I definitely enjoyed it. Last year we covered Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, Arcade Fire’s Funeral, Flaming Lips’ Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, and we ended the series with Radiohead’s OK Computer. We needed a little break before diving in to another album, but we’re picking up where we left off with OK Computer and will perform Kid A next. We hinted at this after last year’s OKC show by doing “Idioteque” as an encore. Enjoy, and check back here after August 10 when we perform the other nine tracks.
