Evan Dando & Courtney Barnett - "Being Around"

I first became aware of Courtney Barnett earlier this year because of her amazing cover of The Lemonheads' "Being Around." We've now come full circle, since last night at the Melbourne stop of the Lemonheads' Australian tour, Barnett joined Evan Dando onstage for a duet of the song. "Being Around" has always seemed like a bit of a throwaway novelty song to me, but apparently I'm the only one since it's been played at virtually every Lemonheads/Evan Dando show I've ever been to, to the great joy of the audience. it's still a fantastic cover, and you can see both parties are having a great time.

Now we just need a version of "Rudderless" with Evan and Laura Stevenson...
