This was Beck's Odelay release party, the night the album came out. Technically this show was on the 18th because it started at midnight.
The sound quality is great, and Beck plays acoustic stuff and chats a lot with the audience.
Beck shoots down a request for "Satan Gave Me A Taco" and then tells a story about watching John Tesh Live At Red Rocks, and notes how fascinating Tesh is. He then announces the "John Tesh Blues," which is actually "Cyanide Breath Mint" (with the last line changed to 'positive people impaled on the Red Rocks').
Beck then relents to "one goofy one" and does an acoustic "Fume" (where he includes John Tesh on the radio in the lyrics).
Then Beck turns on his drum machine, and gets the audience to chant for favorite country singers ("Billy Ray Cyrus! Bocephus turn it out!") Then he messes with his drum machine some more, playing with different beats, before giving up and going back to the folk music ("Cold Brains").
After that, Beck brings out Steve Shelley from Sonic Youth on drums and Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Jazz-Bo) on bass (Thurston Moore was in the audience). They do a countrified version of "Sleeping Bag," before finally playing some stuff from Odelay. The highlight of those is a very relaxed, contemplative "Jack-ass." This is the first official show with Justin Meldal-Johnsen!
The show ends with a very very long version of "Diskobox," for which Beck pulls a guy in a bandana on stage to beatbox, as well a bunch of others to stand there as the posse (he has them fold their arms to look like they mean business). JMJ and Shelley add some rhythm, and after the first verse, Beck gives a ton of shout-outs: to his girlfriend, various record label people, his landlady for rhubarb pie, John Tesh for giving birth to him. Then he finishes the last verse of "Diskobox" quite ferociously (and amazingly).
Memorable show, and very cool little bootleg.
