Live Covers

A school band has played a live cover of a DJ Shadow track. That’s interesting, but it reminds me of Alarm Will Sound‘s good Aphex Twin cover album. It seems that live, semi-orchestral covers of all digital — and often glitchy, which makes them harder to play — tracks is kind of the cool new thing for bands to do.

The old favourite, live band covers of classic 8-bit chiptunes, has become too mainstream for some, I guess. Edit: I now have tickets for the Toronto Video Games Live concert. Geek out.
