Glen Hansard, Lisa Hannigan & John Smith Cover The Band

A.V. Club is known (at least to me) for their brilliant series, Undercover, where they invite artists to cover songs outside of their comfort zone. This time, they're taking a break from the usual formula, and bringing us just a fantastic, but fairly expected, cover. Glen Hansard, Lisa Hannigan, and her collaborator, John Smith, team up to cover The Band's "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down." Hansard often performs this song live, and a few weeks ago in New York, I caught a live version of this cover from all three of them. It was absolutely fantastic. Now you can see it too!
