The Punch Brothers, the ultra-progressive sorta-bluegrass band that features Fredericksburg’s own Chris Eldridge on guitar, is working the media circuit hard to promote their new album “Who’s Feeling Young Now?” Their most recent appearances include Late Night with David Letterman last night and a trip to The Onion’s A.V. Club undercover experiment.

The trip to the A.V. Club was a nice surprise, as they decided to cover The Cars’ hit “Just What I Needed.” The Brothers stay pretty true to the original, but they do it with acoustic instruments. No small feat, and a pretty clever arrangement for what is basically a novelty gig.
