[video] Dry the River cover Wolf Parade

Dry the River - "You Are A Runner And I Am My Father's Son"

A while back, Wolf Parade took part in a charity for the Yellow Bird Project. YBP is an organization that teams up with indie bands to help raise money for various causes. The band designs a t-shirt, and all the proceeds go to a charity of the band's choice. For Wolf Parade, all their t-shirt money went to the Glass Casters Union, which is a non-profit organization based in Eugene Oregon (buy the shirt here).

Dry the River is another band that took part in the Yellow Bird Project (shirt here). They also performed a three-song set for YBP, which included a cover of Wolf Parade's "You Are I Runner, And I Am My Father's Son." The video is above, and more songs are here if you like what you hear. I like how different their version sounds, and I respect a cover that unique to the original.
