Watch Built To Spill Cover New Order, Pavement, The Smiths, Metallica and 9 More

Doug Martsch and Built to Spill are touring in California right now. And, it has come to our attention (we were there last night) that since playing a full covers set at Treefort Festival, the band has been incorporating a remarkable group of tribute songs in their concerts. It’s like the jukebox in heaven.

So, while you wait for Built to Spill to give some indication if we are getting a new album this year, check out the band performing a number of classics. Note: the videos from a surprise show in San Jose look like the most fun night ever.
