North Carolina artists are banding together to raise money for the beloved Carrboro venue Cat’s Cradle. Superchunk, the Mountain Goats, Iron & Wine, Hiss Golden Messenger, and more are covering some of their favorite songs for the upcoming compilation Cover Charge: NC Artists Go Under Cover To Benefit Cat’s Cradle, with all proceeds going directly to support the club. Superchunk did a very fun cover of the Go-Go’s “Can’t Stop The World,” and you can listen to that below alongside contributions from Hiss Golden Messenger and Jonathan Wilson, Sarah Shook & The Disarmers, the dB’s, and Steep Canyon Rangers.
Cover Charge: NC Artists Go Under Cover To Benefit Cat’s Cradle is out 7/31. And if you’re feeling inclined to support a beloved indie rock institution by giving money in exchange for a compilation of exclusive cover tracks, may I humbly suggest also donating to our ongoing Save Stereogum campaign?
