UnderCover Presents Joni Mitchell's Blue 

When: Mon., Jan. 21, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $22.50, 24.50

Joni Mitchell's seminal 1971 release Blue is bound to have its share of re-interpretations and covers, but few could be as ambitious as UnderCover Presents, which gathers local musicians from a gamut of styles to cover songs from a classic album. The bands each record one track, then get together and perform the reconceived album in its entirety. Mitchell's Blue is the latest to get the UnderCover treatment, with fascinating results: An electro-pop version of "A Case of You," a Tropicalia-style "All I Want," or a hip-hop symphony cover of "This Flight Tonight." Plus, everyone who comes to the show will receive a download code for the studio recorded album. UnderCover's first-ever East Bay performance will be at Freight and Salvage (2020 Addison St., Berkeley) on Monday, Jan. 21, and Tuesday, Jan. 22, and will include performances by KillBossa, BharathiPalivela and Daniel Fabricant, Kelly McFarling, The Beth Custer Ensemble, Kitka, Amy X Neuburg, Adam Theis with Aima the Dreamer and Trance, Suzy Thompson, The Seshen, and Kathy Stephan. 8 p.m., $22.50.
