Lake Street Dive Performs Beatles Cover ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ On Rooftop
Lake Street Dive assembled on a rooftop in Brooklyn to recreate the Beatles' final performance, which took place atop Apple headquarters located at 3 Savile Row in central London in 1969. LSD shared video featuring their cover of “Don’t Let Me Down,” one of five songs from the Beatles’ 1969 set.
Each member of Lake Street Dive dressed like their counterpart in the Beatles for the Brooklyn rooftop performance. Guitarist Mike Olson was not on hand but was represented by a cardboard cutout. Bassist Bridget Kearney took her Paul McCartney costume to the next level by using an instrument similar to Macca’s signature Hofner violin bass.
Video featuring Lake Street Dive’s version of “Don’t Let Me Down” premiered as part of the band’s “Halloween Spooktacular” Lounge Around Sounds Variety Hour livestream last week. The latest round of Lounge Around Sounds Variety Hour livestreams concludes on Monday, November 23 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT with “THANKSforGIVING.”
