The Lemonheads recently released Varshons 2, an album of covers, via Fire Records. Evan Dando and company perform at 9:30 Club on Thursday, June 13, and you can win tickets to go with Parklife DC.
On Varshons 2, Evan covers a lot of ground, including songs by Nick Cave, The Bevis Frond, John Prine, Yo La Tengo, Lucinda Williams, and Paul Westerberg. There is perhaps no cover more surprising than The Lemonheads’ version of “Take It Easy” by The Eagles, however.
Evan said, “‘Take It Easy’ is kinda rough. It was my girlfriend’s idea, but it was my idea to make it sound anaemic and bloodless… enjoy!”
