I posted this in the other Beck thread, just couldn't resist posting it here:

I was at the Echo last night. My friend's band, Spain, was playing and he called my boyfriend to tell us his sound check got moved back because Beck was playing a surprise show (he knows how much I LOVE Beck). We got there early and I got right up front. Freakin' awesome!

Questions:

Did he start at 8PM or was there a warm up act?

How long did he play?

judila
06-12-2008, 05:39 PM
He went on close to 8:30, he was the first act (my friend was joking that Beck was opening for his band) and he played a mix of old and new songs.

I would think so. Of all things and critical jabs you can take with Beck, I don't think he is lame. He's a born entertainer who can entertain and play music in just about any genre without disrespecting it. He is funky and folky. He's at the very least interesting.

Danger Mouse producing Beck album

You'd think a resume that includes collaborations with Cee-Lo, the Rapture, MF Doom, the Black Keys, Sparklehorse, the Good, the Bad & the Queen, and the late Ike Turner would be enough for Danger Mouse. But nooooo! He has to go and blow all of those projects out of the water with his highest profile partner* yet: Beck. ~pitchforkmedia.com

[Beck] is apparently still injured from a music video so his dancing around the stage is limited (I guess people were saying Beck shows are boring now and this is a part of the reason.)



This might be why he cancelled maybe the injury was acting up on him or something
