Day #88: Music Family – “Losing My Religion” (R.E.M. cover)
Kudos to tUnE yArDs (aka Merrill Garbus) who got the kids from Brightworks and SF Rock Project in for her latest video, “My Country.” Garbus is also helping SF Rock Project raise some money through Kickstarter to build an instrument lending library. And you totally should donate, because one day you could be in a band. And, you know that kids make the best bandmates because they have all the time in the world for band practice. Plus look at all the cool shit you get for helping to fund the project. Low-end bids earn you lots of SFRP and tUnE yArDs swag, but throw in $3,000 and Merrill will “compose a song using lyrics of your choosing (including those you write yourself).”
Look for tUnE yArDs on tour this summer. Merrill & co. will be stopping through DC in June to play a sold out show at 9:30 Club.
