Something in the Way

NPR has a few blog entries up this month called About a Song. The blog is about Nirvana's "Something in the Way" on the 20th anniversary of "Nevermind". They have great interviews with David Bazan and Damien Jurado, and they mention a specific cover of the song played by Pedro the Lion at Cornerstone in 2000. I was fortunate enough to see PTL play Cornerstone in 2001 and 2002, and while I was not at the 2000 show, I do have a bootleg of it. I don't know how readily available the bootleg is, so I just uploaded it. You can download the whole show, and "Something in the Way" is track 2.
