Cover Me: Waiting Room

Brooklyn indie dance band Rubblebucket offer a cover of Fugazi's Waiting Room as a free download. Picking this song may seem like an odd choice for them, but it makes perfect sense. Bandleader Alex Toth explains:

There was a vibrant hardcore scene where i grew up in NJ in the late 90's. Many of my friends were in bands (while I was off doing jazz), setting up DIY shows and shooting homemade movies. Fugazi was king. Last year Kal and I spent a lot of time in waiting rooms. I was listening to "13 Songs" recently while decompressing from our end of year tour, and this one just crushed me.
