Rickenbacker in an AVClub video?
January 10, 2013 9:11 AM   Subscribe

I have a recollection of one of, I think, the AVClub covers project videos where the band's bass player is playing a Jetglo Rickenbacker 4001/4003. I thought it was maybe Hospitality doing Rikki Don't Lose That Number, but it isn't.

I think it's a well-known but not super-famous contemporary indie band. I think it is a 'rock band' lineup (guitar or two, bass, drums). I think the song has a prominent bass line. It's possible that it is a woman bass player. It might not even be a very good song, I just have an image of it in my head and can't remember who it is.

Yes, I've looked at the AVClub Covers videos, but I haven't watched EVERY one of them. Maybe it is something similar - the KEXP stuff? Tiny Desk? Argh.

Yes, I am wasting a question on this.

Ooh! Maybe?

I'm going to reserve judgement and see if anyone else comes up with another one, because that's the Fireglo, and I really see the Jetglo (black) in my mind. But, gosh, maybe that is it?

I'm fairly certain it's the Screaming Females covering Sheryl Crow.

I'm pretty sure it was Stop Draggin My Heart Around.

Wow! Lotsa Rics!

IAACBPWAJR4 (I am a Chick Bass Player With a Jetglo Rickenbacker 4001), but I don't think I am your CBPWAJR4. Am I?

Platinum, true, alas, you are not the CBPWAR4 I was thinking of, but there's no such thing as too many BPWAJR4s! I myself am a recently minted BPWAJR4s (a 4003, oh how I love it) and no doubt that is what set me trying to remember who this band was.
