    That’s semi-not “Swing Low Sweet Chariot” by the Gossip–it’s “Swing Low” from their first record. (But of course it has tons of Sweet Chariot references).

    I’ve never heard this live cover, and it’s AWESOME!! Any chance the whole concert might pop up sometime soon??

    A change is gonna come is actually by sam cooke–although it’s acquired “traditional” status by now, he’s still the original behind it.
