Boat’s Month of Covers

With only two days left, I just now find out about Boat’s month of covers. Great. No one tells me anything. Anyway, since October 15th, musicians have been submitting their covers of their favorite Boat songs to the band, who are then turning around and posting them on their blog.

Most recently, Jay Cox of the Sea Navy covered “Last Cans of Paint.” The band’s also posted new versions of “Remember the Romans,” “(I’m a) Donkey For Your Love,” “After All,” “The Ferocious Sounds of Lobsters and Snakes,” and “Come With Me, We’ll Win” (which is actually pretty great, listen to it here).

And yeah, maybe there’s only two days left (the fun ends November 15), but grab your guitar and lay something down. Someone should do “Period, Backslash, Colon.” It’s one of my favorites and I’d just butcher it.
