Imitation is Flattery?

I recently had an opportunity to go see the band The Decemberists at the Taft Theater in Cincinnati. I went with Eric, the guitarist in my band. It was a great performance and I truly enjoyed the evening of music and stage shenanigans.

Not long ago, the guys in my group got together and did a quick learn of The Decemberists song, “Sucker’s Prayer.” We obviously don’t have all the instrumentation they do, nor do we have the number of vocalists. But I think it was a noble attempt at the song. We recorded it for one of our episodes of Tales from the Closet.

The video here is our take on the song.
