I love a good cover, and I double love the Avett Brothers (because there are two of them, duh), so when I saw that one of my favorite bands had covered one of my favorite songs — “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea” — what can I say? It was triple love at first sight.

The following video of the Avett Brothers performing the Neutral Milk Hotel track was taken during this past week’s Voodoo Experience 2012 festival at City Park in New Orleans, Louisiana. Other headliners included Jack White, Nas, Neil Young, Die Antwoord, Metallica…basically the most eclectic mix of artists you can imagine. Below the fan-recorded video of the cover performance is a highlight video taken from the rest of the Avetts’ set, and for more great videos from the festival, be sure to head over to the VoodooTV Vimeo page.
