Today, UnderCover unveils its second project: A live performance and recording of the Pixies' Dolittle. Oh, but there's more.
The Pixies project, set for Feb. 22 at Public Works (tickets go on sale today) will be larger and more ambitious than the first effort in pretty much every way: This effort involves more than 100 local musicians from 15 different groups. And while the VU show was recorded live for later release on Mission label Porto Franco, the artists involved in Dolittle are already tracking at Faultline Studios -- recordings of their covers will be sold at the show.
But as with before, the basic aim is a total reinterpretation of a classic album, in sequence.
The Dolittle project is still in the works, which means some more surprises could be in store, but in the meantime, here's a list of the artists so far set to perform.
