It is not often that an opening act gets called back for an encore. At the end of Kaki King‘s set at Webster Hall on Sunday night she received just that kind of reception from the feel-good crowd. Kaki answered the calls by returning solo and performing a surprise cover of The Smiths classic “Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want” from the Louder Than Bombs compilation and the Pretty in Pink soundtrack.

John Darnielle came out for a second to join Kaki but did not participate in the vocals. Unfortunately, while I had the deck running, I was not quite prepared for this surprise as I was standing near the back of the room jostling through the crowd for a location to record The Mountain Goats set. As a result, the sound quality of the recording is well below the usual standards of the recordings of this site. There is a lot of ambient noise — bottles clinking at the bar, chatting and rustling. We offer this recording because it has been requested by numerous people in the incredibly nice Mountain Goats forum. Enjoy!
