Despite ominous rain clouds and threats of cancelation, Brandon Flowers performed at Detroit’s MoPop Festival on Saturday night, and he opened his set with a thrilling cover of The White Stripes’ “Fell In Love With a Girl.” As Stereogum notes, it wasn’t the Killers frontman’s only cover — he was seen covering Spoon’s “The Underdog” in a MoPop rehearsal. Watch an admittedly too-brief Instagram video of Flowers’ cover below.
