Julian Casablancas Covered the Doors and… Milli Vanilli?

Julian Casablancas + the Voidz were performing at the Beach Goth Festival in Orange County, California, this past weekend, and in addition to cuts from their 2014 album, Tyranny, they played an out-of-left field cover. During the Growlers’ set, Casablancas came out to join them for a performance of the Doors’ “People Are Strange,” which is pretty on-brand. But during the Voidz’ set, the band decided to try their hand at Milli Vanilli’s seminal 1989 hit “Girl You Know It’s True.” It was an unexpected but delightfully fun choice, as fan-shot Instagram videos confirm (though some fans who weren’t familiar with Milli Vanilli’s work thought it was a brand-new track). Check ’em out via Stereogum.
