Watch Ben Kweller Perform an Acoustic Version of Hit Meat Purveyors Cover Via 'The Bluegrass Situation'


April 16th, 2015 by bsradmin

Ben Kweller covered The Meat Purveyors' "2:00AM" for our 20th anniversary compilation album While No One Was Looking, available on double CD, triple vinyl LP, or digital here.

Our compadre Ben performed at our 20th Anniversary Blowout at Metro in Chicago in January, and before his set, we filmed him playing a stripped down version of the song. The green room was a bit (read: MUCH) too rowdy to record the video, so Ben took it upon himself to explore the building, and he led us to the half-renovated Smart Bar in Metro's basement (we probably shouldn't have been poking around down there - sorry, Metro). The classic photo booth in the dingy, dusty bar was the perfect place to capture the essence of this tears-in-your-whiskey country song.
