Back in the early 2000s, musician Colin Meloy made a name for himself in the indie rock scene with a band called the Decemberists.

Then in 2005, Colin Meloy struck out on his own, with a cover album called "Colin Meloy Sings Morrissey."

Since then, he's followed up with other cover EPs, taking on Shirley Collins, Sam Cooke and now The Kinks. Meloy will be singing from his new recording "Colin Meloy Sings the Kinks" at the Fonda Theater in Hollywood tonight. He joins Take Two to talk about covering such famous musicians' music and more.
