Free Download: Wilco Cover Daft Punk, Pavement, Stones, Beatles & More

Did you miss Wilco's Solid Sound Festival last weekend at MoCA, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in the scenic Berkshires? Yeah... so did we, sadly. It's a unfortunate situation only punctuated by this little fact: The Chicago band opened the festival Friday night with an all-covers set featuring renditions of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" (watch above) and Pavement's "Cut Your Hair" (watch below), plus covers of songs by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Television, the Replacements, the Band, Big Star, Neil Young, Cheap Trick, the Velvet Underground, Abba and more.

Thankfully (seriously, thank you), the NYC Taper was there to record the entire set and is currently offering it as a free download right here. Enjoy (I certainly did).
