Jeff Tweedy performs the Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling" | Video
This evening, as part of Dan Sinker's "The F***ing Epic Quest of @MayorEmanuel" book release party at the Hideout, a local rockstar took the stage to perform some unlikely covers. Followers of the @MayorEmanuel feed might remember a string of tweets from the fake mayoral candidate proposing that Jeff Tweedy perform Black Eyed Peas songs at his fundraiser, because "People love that shit." Well, fantasy became reality this evening as Tweedy launched into a short set of Black Eyed Peas tunes, playing through acoustic versions of "I Gotta Feeling" and "Rock That Body." Tweedy also did a thoroughly hilarious reading of the lyrics to "My Humps."
We'll have photos and more details from the event tomorrow (including an appearance from Rahm himself!) but for now, enjoy this video of Tweedy's take on "I Gotta Feeling." Tonight, truly, is gonna be a good night.
