Just a friendly reminder that the awesomeness that is The Great Cover-Up begins tonight at Plush.

You know all about it by this point, right? If not, read up here.

We've been posting a video (almost) every day this week of one of the acts getting covered at this year's event playing a cover song, and today is no exception.

Today's clip features The Pretenders — who are being covered on Friday night at Club Congress — playing a song originally recorded by The Kinks — who will be covered on Saturday night at the Rialto Theatre.
