Best of the Bay 2012: BEST REASON TO DOWNLOAD THE WHOLE ALBUM

In the age of downloadable singles and quick-click clips, UnderCover Presents' series of one-whole-album-with-one-live-show pairings values the full record experience. The quarterly event is an inspired mashup comprised almost entirely of Bay Area-based musicians, with each band performing just one reinterpreted song off a classic album. Thus far, there have been shows at Coda (now Brick and Mortar Music Hall), Public Works, the Rickshaw Stop, and the Independent; full nights spent luxuriating in every crevice and groove of the Velvet Underground's Velvet Underground and Nico, the Pixie's Doolittle, Nick Drake's Pink Moon, and Black Sabbath's Paranoid. To complete the sparkling tribute experience, a pre-recorded album of all the covers is doled out at each performance, to be played in its entirety beyond those singular shows.
