Are you going to the show at the Armory?


Yes. Not ideal since my kids are short, but whatever.

Oh nice, bringing the kids :thumbsup: I might be at the show too. I’ve got several friends that are going, I’m trying to get my schedule figured out to be there too. Haven’t been to Armory yet but I’ve heard good things.

It’s nice. I took my wife to see Pink during the Super Bowl weekend.

I’ll be seeing this dude on Monday and I’m super excited about it. I’ve seen him open for U2, but never in a headliner spot. Set lists have looked great

Love his folk/rock music, hate his "party" music. Odelay was a huge disappointment when it came out. I didn't know a single fan who liked it at the time, despite it's current reputation as a "classic".

I knew a lot of people that loved it at the time. I also think Midnight Vultures, Guero, Modern Guilt, and now Colors are all genius albums that don’t garner the same love as Sea Change and Modern Phase because the former are more fun and less poetic but to me are no less fantastic.

Odelay and Midnight Vultures do next to nothing for me.

It pissed me off that Mutations was tossed off as a "stop-gap" album at the time, because it's 10X better than either of those albums. I guess they thought people wouldn't like it because it wasn't like Odelay. :(

I love all of those albums. I LOVE them. I don’t know if I could even pick a favorite, but if forced I’d probably say Mutations.

This far exceeded expectations. I’ve seen Beck 7 or 8 times over 20 years, and this was the best of all. The Colors songs are so much fun, and Beck knows Guero is his best non-acoustic album. Cannot believe he played Earthquake Weather and Go It Alone! My kids fucking loved it. If Beck is good no to be doing a show near you and you’re a fan, check it out. His band is great, and except for ignoring Mutations, he’s crushing it.

I didn’t end up going. Schedule conflicts. My friends that were there all said it was a great show too. Wish I could’ve made it.

I was on the fence about going tonight because it is a festival. But I really want to see him and this may be my only shot this tour, so I'm definitely doing it.

Mutations is kind of like Binaural and Riot Act for Pearl Jam.

There is a huge amount of love for the albums but the artists seem to think they are universally hated.

If you ever read an interview with Beck about Mutations he sounds ashamed he released it. can't wrap my head around that.
