VIDEO: Music house performing Fleet Foxes

Indie folksters Fleet Foxes came to our very own Memorial Chapel Tuesday night, in the form of the members of Music House. Following up last year’s performance of Funeral by Arcade Fire, the harmonizing prairie dogs gave the sizable crowd a warm and intimate rendition of Seattle band’s self-titled 2008 LP, punctuated by a rocked out cover of Mykonos from their Sun Giant EP (released the same year). People were clapping, dancing, and enjoying an all-around awesome Tuesday study break.
