Video: Muhsinah – “Zombie” (The Cranberries Cover) + Live At The Loft RSVP

 

So, yesterday we teased you a little about Live At The Loft, huh? We know. You want to go, right? Mmmm hmm, you do. Well, today we have a present for you in the form of a guestlist link. Don’t say we don’t love you.

Also, above you’ll find a very special leak from Muhsinah’s performance at the loft. The original footage from her show can be found after the jump, but this video is something a little different. At the end of her set, Muhsinah actually did a few covers, the above being a chilling rendition of The Cranberries’ “Zombie.” Muhsinah puts on a damn good show – it was tingles and smiles all night.

Want to go to the next show at the loft? Here you are:
