A.V. Undercover: Summer Break

…And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead covers The Kinks 

And you won't know them by this chipper acoustic number.

About This Episode

..And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead joined us in the round room a while back, though they didn't understand the concept of our list and ended up covering an Indigo Girls song. For Undercover Summer Break, the bands choose their own song anyway—it just has to be summer-related, somehow—so it was easy for the band, an acoustic duo here, to choose. The choice: The Kinks' "Sunny Afternoon," a pleasant ditty about being so over-taxed by the government that you can't really do anything except laze around on your yacht. The setting: Chicago's Emporium Arcade Bar, which recently expanded to include a bigger performance space. As you can see, they have Zaxxon. Trail Of Dead's latest is Lost Songs.
