Beck

Beck may be a Scientologist, but in my book he is still the coolest dude around. I'm no music critic, so I won't try to convey how awesome last night's show at the Georgia Theater was except to say it RAWKED.

He played songs from every phase of his career. My only disappointment was that the crowd seemed not to acknowledge when he turned it down a notch to do some acoustic "Sea Change"/"Mutations" stuff.

Beck is known I guess for having a sort of performance art element to his act. At Vegoose, he had Boy Scouts on stage building a campfire for some reason. Last night, there was a puppet show enacting the show in real time and broadcast on the screen behind him. It was cooler than it sounds.

Yeah. How many people are all, "I thought it was a totally valid religion about us being aliens trapped in human bodies and all, but this Tom Cruise guy, now that's _crazy_"?
