The Cure and Dinosaur Jr. - SIDE BY SIDE SERIES The Cure's "Just Like Heaven" and a cover from Dinosaur Jr. of The Cure's "Just Like Heaven." We're in heaven. Dawes/Conor Oberst - SPLIT 7 We were fortunate to meet the Dawes crew on their stop in Richmond, so of course we were stoked to see Dawes on the RSD lineup. Dawes covers Conor Oberst, Conor Oberst covers Dawes. On a 7" vinyl. Fleetwood Mac - DRAGONFLY/THE PURPLE DANCER We're huge fans of Fleetwood Mac. Dragonfly was the first UK release from Fleetwood Mac o feature Christine McVie as a full member. The Purple Dancer has never been commercially released in the US. The question remains...
