Ben Gibbard continued his livestreams tonight, with a nice selection of Death Cab For Cutie songs and one Postal Service song ("Brand New Colony"), and he also did another cool cover: Guided by Voices' "Don't Stop Now" from 1996's Under the Bushes Under the Stars. Ben's acoustic rendition was of course a little more somber than the fuzz-drenched original, but "Don't Stop Now" is a tender singer/songwriter song at its core, so this a great choice given Ben's setup and he did a fantastic job with it. Watch below (it starts at the 32:44 mark).

This was Ben's second to last weekly show, before he moves to something "a little less frequent" starting in June. Tonight's show was in benefit of Community Lunch, "a non-profit that provides hot, nutritious meals and survival services to those experiencing homelessness and low-income people in Seattle." You can still donate at YouTube or via Venmo (at @BenGibbardLiveFromHome).

Tune in Thursday, May 28 for Ben's next stream and his last one on a weekly schedule.

Guided by Voices also recently launched a subscription service with rare music, videos, photos, and more, and they have an Alien Lanes 25th anniversary reissue on the way.
