The Julie Ruin Covered Courtney Barnett’s ‘Pedestrian At Best’

Sometimes you Hit Reset on the Julie Ruin and a Courtney Barnett song comes out. Kathleen Hanna‘s dance-punk group covered Barnett’s “Pedestrian at Best” during their show at Chicago’s Thalia Hall last night, and it sounded… surprisingly like a Julie Ruin song.

Frontwoman Kathleen Hanna shared vocals with keyboard player Kenny Mellman on the single from last year’s Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit. The audio quality is a bit scratchy, but the attitude is all there. Watch a fan-shot video below, via Stereogum.
