Michelle Zauner of Japanese Breakfast performed two sets this past weekend at Lollapalooza in Chicago. During their set, Japanese Breakfast paid tribute to Wilco by covering their track, “Jesus, Etc.”
“We learned this song, especially for Chicago…so hopefully we do a good job,” Zauner told the crowd at Lincoln Hall before performing. In the performance, Zauner strummed her electric Fender Jazzmaster guitar in place of the acoustic guitar in the original recording. Zauner kept the strumming light to match the tone of the song, as the band’s rendition stayed very close to the original, which had two violinists leading the intro.
