Watch Brand New’s Jesse Lacey Cover Nirvana’s ‘Lithium’ With Kevin Devine

Over the weekend, singer-songwriter Kevin Devine played two release shows for Devinyl Splits, his ongoing series of seven-inch splits (from which SPIN recently premiered two tracks: Meredith Graves’ “Took the Ghost to the Movies” and Cymbals Eat Guitars’ “Aerobed”). Playing the Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia on Saturday, Devine welcomed a couple of special guests to the stage: Cymbals Eat Guitars singer Joe D’Agostino and Brand New’s Jesse Lacey, who performed an on-point cover of Nirvana’s “Lithium.”

Lacey also joined Devine for his songs “Cotton Crush,” “Ballgame,” and “Tomorrow’s Just Too Late,” while Kevin and his band, the Goddamn Band, backed Jesse for Brand New’s “Bought A Bride,” “Mene,” and “Okay I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don’t,” which also featured D’Agostino on the bridge.
