Beck returns to the Largo for one of Judd Apatow's regular charity gigs, usually billed as Judd Apatow and Friends.
Beck was announced in advance, along with comedian Maria Bamford. Also performing were comedians Seth Rudetsky, Vince Caldera, and Neal Brennan. Beck performed the third set.
Beck opened with a "Country Down," but couldn't remember the last verse. "Debra / Raspberry Beret" was a crowd-pleaser. Then a really nice "Don't Let It Go," before attempting his brand-new single "Saw Lightning." He did it on just harmonica, no guitar, no less, converting it into a blues footstomp. After that he did some more blues - his old fave "Devil Got My Woman" (first time in 16 years) and then a slower bluesier "Heart Is A Drum." Lastly, he kicked on his drum machine and had some fun with "Loser."
