For the occasion Mac McCaughan recorded an acoustic version of “Watery Hands”:

“Void” is off I Hate Music, Superchunk’s latest album.
According to the press release:
Directed by Scott Jacobson and starring Jon Benjamin, Jon Glaser, Ted Travelstead, and the whole Superchunk band, as well as band appearances from Ava Luna, Heliotropes, Lost Boy, and Weird Womb, the “Void” video celebrates the exuberance of a good rock show.
This is cool. Superchunk are letting us download an 18-song live album, Clambakes Vol 7: Shut the F*ck Up!…No, We Love You – Live at the Corner Hotel 1996. The album was recorded live in Melbourne, Australia on November 23, 1996.
Singer/guitarist Mac McCaughan wrote of the new Clambake:
To celebrate our return to Australia, we take you back to the last show of our last visit and a Clambake recorded live at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne in November 1996. It sounds like this was a fun night and I’m sure it was—Smudge and The 3Ds were on the bill—so please excuse a few glitches in the recording and enjoy the energy circa ’96. Looking forward to seeing you again shortly.
