mp3: Broken Social Scene - Kennel District (Pavement Cover)
And speaking of Pavement and their upcoming comeback tour (see my previous entry) here's one of my favorite bands covering one of my favorite Pavement songs! Broken Social Scene's Kevin Drew is a big fan of 90s alternative bands like Dinosaur Jr and Pavement, and performed covers of them during the when he went on tour with BSS 2007-08 promoting his solo album, Spirit If.
It must be really amazing for the fanboy, then, that Broken Social Scene are set to perform at Pavement's UK shows in May! For a music fan growing up to be a musician, sharing stage with your idols must be incredible. The cover version is really good, give it a listen!
