Throwback Thursday: April 17, 2013: Kris covers "Something" by the Beatles in Minneapolis, MN

Every Thursday we take a look back at Kris' career via video.

This week, I'm feverishly working on my annual project of culling all of Kris' performances that I can find for the year into a YouTube playlist. This year, given that he went on an extensive tour, I am only up through April and I already have four playlists! It's a lot of fun to work on them and look at some of the performances I may not have noticed while bringing you the lists. Especially by spring, there were so many videos of Kris performing that sadly, some of the April shows got a bit overlooked by the fandom at large. One of these was the April 17 show in Minneapolis.

As you know, Kris did a request song each night of the Out Alive tour. In this show, he chose to cover Something by his favorite band, the Beatles. The performance is lovely and there's some pretty funny pre-song banter, as well as Kris apparently imitating a kazoo. Here's a nice video from SheriH for you to enjoy!

As a bonus, I made a quick and dirty mp3 from it - untrimmed - which you are welcome to have. Click here to download.

Look for me to post and tweet out the 2013 Kris Live video playlists over this upcoming week!
