    Haven't seen Beck live since, like, 2005. I hope he plays at least a few songs from Midnite Vultures. Either way, Beck --> Arcade Fire should be a great way to end the weekend.

    last time (and first time) I saw Beck was 2008 at Street Scene. I went in there as just a casual fan only knowing a handful of songs that weren't loser and where it's at and left with a gigantic smile on my face. I've been wanting to see him again ever since.

    There's literally no possible way that Beck would conflict with Arcade Fire.

    Every album Beck has done has a different feel to it. I'm a huge fan anyway, but this video definitely excites me.

    His Life is Beautiful set was much better than OSL but that's not saying much. His OSL performance was one of the worst sets I've ever seen.

    I'm a huge Beck fan but he brings zero energy and has no stage presence. His song selection always leaves more to be desired. He has so many amazing songs to choose from and the one's he picks seem like a big FU to the fans. I'd stay for the first 2 or 3 songs where he will play Devil's Haircut and Loser. After that it become complete shit.

    It was only my 2nd time seeing him (first was 97), and I liked his set at Outside Lands. It may not have been the most inspired, but I loved (and sang along with) every song.

    setlist:
    Black Tambourine
    Devil's Haircut
    Novacane
    Loser
    Soul of a Man
    Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat (Bob Dylan cover)

    Modern Guilt
    Soldier Jane
    The Golden Age
    Lost Cause (Dedicated to Adam Yauch)

    The problem with beck live is his music is lazy sounding on record. I mean it's great to sing along to in a car , but it's just not high energy or intricate. You'll get neither a party vibe live nor a radiohead experience . Nor does he possess a voice to floor you. There's a low ceiling for him live. We all love to bob our heads and sing his songs but it's never going to be that grade A concert . It's a solid B-
    Spicy pie is mainstream shit.

    I am a fan of Beck, but I think the new song is boring.

    Sadly, it's my first time seeing him even though I'm a long-time fan. Things just never worked out. If he played a set like this, I would be more than satisfied!

    Morning Phase has grown on me considerably over the last two weeks. As much as I'm digging it, I'm hoping/thinking that his set won't draw too much from it; maybe two or three songs. He hasn't played Coachella in ten years - you figure it's gonna be a very crowd-pleasing, best-of set list right? And probably two (slightly) different sets each weekend? I would bet that he'll close with Debra at least one weekend.

    The album will have been out for almost two months by the time he plays; I definitely think it'll be more than two songs.

    How long do we think he gets? 70 minutes?

    Morning Phase is streaming now on NPR...

    http://www.npr.org/2014/02/16/274773...se?ft=1&f=1039

    It allows you to listen to each track individually which is cool too.

    I'm only a few tracks deep but it is definitely different than his older stuff. So far I'm a fan, I dunno how it'll translate on the polo fields though.

    I was in the middle of the Mojave tent for Beck back in 2004. It was so crowded that I was actually able to lift my feet off the ground and still be held up by the bodies around me. I remember being stuck there, struggling to breathe, thinking "I'm subjecting myself to this for an acoustic set?" Definitely not worth the agony.

    I've heard Beck's new album, and it's definitely NOT Midnight Vultures. I'm guessing his performance will be mellow and reflective.

    to be fair, his OSL night show was much better than the actual OSL set. also liked his Club Nokia show better than Street Scene so i'm not expecting too much for Coachella, it will be mellow, and i'm gonna be really stoned.

    I like the new album, but yeah, mellow Beck can make for a dull live show. The last time I saw him live, I was a freshman in high school and I still remember how great that show was. His huge band was amazing and he was dancing like a mad man.

    Given the stories about the back injury he suffered a few years ago, I don't really know how energetic he can be these days...

    They should just give Beck 2+ hours. Let him play however much he wants from the new album, plus all of the hits and deep cuts and let him go off. He did headline the first day of the first year of this festival, right?
