Friday Funday- The Hold Steady Covering "Scarlet Begonias"

Over the years we have come to love a few things here at RtBEThe Grateful Dead are one, The Hold Steady are 2. Combining those forces make for one happy Friday.

This comes from the Move Me Brightly party that Bob Weir threw for a legitimately dead Jerry (more on that when I can stomach it) and features not only Craig and Tad from tHS, but Mike Gordon from Phish and a slew of others.  From a personal note I have defended Donna era Dead for years, but this is pretty tough, granted Craig vocals aren't for everyone either, but I love it and think he does a bang up job here.

You like the cover?  Hate the cover?  (like many of the youtube commentators?) let me know in the comments.

Enjoy yerself, and enjoy yer weekend, I will, I am seeing Primus tonight.
