He's gonna play only morning phase and we are all going to lay in a circle, holding hands, and nap all the while.
I want to be excited about Beck, I really do. But I have little interest if it's going to be a snoozefest.
He'll get like 70 minutes. I don't see him spending more than half that time on his new album.
Love love LOVE the new album. Looking forward to sitting in the grass all blissed out.
Beck on SNL
Song one = "Blue Moon" with a little Josh Tillman. Very nice.
Song two = "Wave" with a little 12-person orchestra. Ballsy and nuanced.
Hell yes to both of these performances
Tillman in INdio?
Coachella - 2001, 2002, 2004, 2012, 2013 W1, 2014 W1
here's to hoping he brings an orchestra for this set

One of my top 5's for the weekend and really hoping he takes it back to some of the old school stuff. Odelay, Midnite Vultures, etc. first saw him in the mid 90's and was breakdancing in the crowd with a jump suit on full of rhinestones Classic!
I have seen Beck countless times, the first time being Tibetan Freedom one. I am not at all excited about this set. When I saw the Mutations tour, he was in his energetic prime, but chose to take it down a notch to support that shit album, which sucked for me. Although he looked bored and disinterested during the Modern Guilt tour, he did three songs from Midnight Vultures, which was worth the price of admission itself. So now his fucked up back is fixed, he has been producing other artists albums, and he pro-tooled a new one for himself. Get funky Beck! We want to have fun, not wax philosophical for fuck sake. Throw in one of your Bob Dylan wannabe songs here or there, but please, incite dance.
If you are expecting some sort of dance set from Beck you are the stupid. What would be nice and what might happen is Beck with an ensemble like we saw on SNL. Based on interviews, the SNL performance and the new album I think that has the best odds.
For those who didn't notice, J. Tilman (Father John Misty) was doing harmonies on SNL and I hear he may be out with him on tour.
Judging by recent setlists and the show I saw at Treasure Island a few months back, Beck will play a few MP songs, and the rest will be a hit parade. Will not be boring in the least.
I have been to concerts. I will go to concerts in the future.
