Bedouine, Waxahatchee, and Hurray for the Riff Raff Cover Big Star’s “Thirteen”: Listen

Bedouine[1]’s Azniv Korkejian, Waxahatchee[2]’s Katie Crutchfield, and Hurray for the Riff Raff[3]’s Alynda Segarra have shared a cover of Big Star[4]’s classic “Thirteen[5].” Take a listen below (via Spacebomb Records[6]).

In a press release, Azniv Korkejian explained that the idea for the cover came about when the three artists were on tour together[7]. “We threw the idea around of doing a song together but weren’t sure what,” she said. “I was backstage in Columbia, Missouri when I realized it was the anniversary of Big Star’s ’93 reunion show that had also taken place in Columbia. I was fiddling around with the song in my dressing room when Katie and Alynda walked in. Suddenly I remembered there were 3 verses to split up. We played it as an homage that night and every night after.”
