Video: The Feelies cover R.E.M.’s ‘Carnival of Sorts (Box Cars)’ in Cambridge, Mass.

The members of R.E.M. have made no secret about how influenced they were by The Feelies’ 1980 debut Crazy Rhythms, and in this clip — filmed May 14 at The Middle East in Cambridge, Mass. — we see the reunited band salute their admirers with a high-energy run through “Carnival of Sorts (Box Cars)” off 1982’s Chronic Town EP.

Earlier this year, The Feelies released their first new album in 20 years — Here Before — and have been gigging sporadically over the past few months. They’re next slated to play shows Friday in Milford, Conn., and Saturday at Celebrate Brooklyn! in New York.
