For the second year, the A.V. Club has been doing a special holiday day version of their Undercover series which brings in bands to perform cover songs. This year, John Darnielle, aka the Mountain Goats, stopped by to play a holiday classic, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." Check out the up close and personal performance below.
