Something I Learned Today: Our Concert Could Be Your Life

Our Concert Could Be Your Life took place this past weekend at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City (how I wish I could’ve made it to this show) and featured an all-star indie line up of bands covering classic indie rock songs from bands featured in Michael Azerrad’s book Our Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes From the American Indie Underground 1981-1991. The tribute show celebrated the 10th anniversary of the book and was hosted by Janeane Garofalo and Eugene Mirman. On the bill were Ted Leo (covering Minor Threat), Tune-Yards (covering Sonic Youth), Titus Andronicus (covering The Replacements), Wye Oak (covering Dinosaur Jr) & St Vincent (covering Big Black) among others including an amazing Nirvana encore with various musicians who performed earlier in the night.

I don’t have any mp3’s of the show but I highly recommend heading over to NPR to listen to the whole show or any specific sets that interest you.

PS I’m not quite dead.
