once a year in champaign, there's an event called THE GREAT COVER-UP, where the best local bands are invited to pick a musical artist to cover. the bands rehearse for months, dress up like the artists they're covering, and the whole thing's kept a secret until the nights of the performances. IT IS MY FAVORITE THING.
last night was the first night (of three) - elsinore was the headlining band and, well. here you have it.
for maximum effect, see what an elsinore show is more typically like: vimeo.com/clip:88167
i have clips of them doing "bicycle," too, but i was so close to the stage that the sound is almost unbearable.
