Tonight’s a big night around Boston, as Clairo hits The Paradise Rock Club for a pair of sold-out homecoming shows. But those who snagged a ticket to either gig should be sure to arrive early to catch an opening set by Beabadoobee. The London-based Filipino-British indie singer-songwriter, also known as Bea Kristi, caught our attention in 2019 with standout tracks like “Space Cadet” and “She Plays Bass,” but today (November 20) hits us with a lively, grunge-fueled cover of Simple Minds’ ’80s teen movie soundtrack classic “Don’t You (Forget About Me).” Beabadoobee recorded this one at Abbey Road Studios as part of Spotify’s singles series, and we can only hope she adds it to her live sets in Boston this week. Allow the cover to consume your angry little heart below.
