Cover the Crescent: Locals Own NYC Rock at Crescent Ballroom 7/28/13

Cover songs can be tricky business. Finding one(s) that everyone in a band wants to do and then executing it while attempting to pay proper homage to whoever or whatever reason you wanted to do it in the first place.

Doing an entire set of someone else's music, though -- that's downright fucking adventurous. Kudos to all the bands that participated in Sunday night's Cover the Crescent event at downtown's Crescent Ballroom. Everyone rose to, met, and exceeded the challenge like serious champs.
