Introducing A.V. Undercover: Summer Break

After this week's blockbuster Undercover starring They Might Be Giants, we probably earned a break. But we're not the type to rest on our laurels, so next Tuesday, July 12, we're serving up SEVEN new, very special Undercovers. The main list will rest for a week, while Undercover: Summer Break blows your mind. The concept: Seven bands, seven summer-y songs, seven fantastic Chicago locations. That's right, we're leaving the round room and heading out into the sunshine. The first video will launch at midnight Monday/Tuesday, then every two hours starting at 8 a.m. Tuesday. Here are the questions you'll need to ask yourselves until then:

— Who will cover Seals & Crofts' "Summer Breeze" at the Threadless warehouse?

— Who will cover Mungo Jerry's "In The Summertime" on WBEZ's Navy Pier deck?

— Who will cover The Smiths' "Ask" on their friend's roof deck?

— Who will cover Pavement's "Summer Babe" on another awesome roof deck?

— Who will cover Jane's Addiction's "Summertime Rolls" at Hot Doug's Encased Meat Emporium?


— Who will cover George Gershwin's "Summertime" on the outdoor observation deck of one of Chicago's most iconic buidlings?

— Who will cover Alice Cooper's "School's Out" on the deck of a yacht?
