NCAA's March Madness Music Festival - Day 3

This past weekend was the Northside Festival, sort of Brooklyn’s answer to SXSW and CMJ. In addition to hundreds of baby bands, they had a few big-name headliners, including the pairing of Kacey Musgraves and Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes. They guested during each others sets: Musgraves sang her own “Back to the Map” during his, then he returned during hers for a duet cover of Hank Williams‘ classic “Hey Good Lookin’.”

Despite some miscues and stepping on each other’s lines (“we’re professionals,” she quipped), the pair sounded good together. It’s not Musgraves’ first go at the song; she also covered it with the Zac Brown Band a couple months ago.

Someone posted a video, which you can hear below – we’d say watch, but you can’t see much. The audio is good though. She also ended the set with a cover she’s done for a while now, “These Boots Are Made for Walkin'” (complete with flashing Christmas-light boots), which you can check out too.

Check out more Kacey Musgraves at her website.
