Beck @ the Hammerstein Night 1

Beck played the Hammerstein Ballroom last night to a sold out crowd and absolutely destroyed the place. This show was far better than his performance at Across the Narrows. The set list was a mix of old and new material and few covers. What impresses me the most about this tour is how beck has integrated all of his styles and brought a higher level of performance to his live show. It is as if he has added even more theatric than previous tours. One of the best parts for me is the dinner table segment. During this time the band takes on a kind "Stomp" performance while Beck plays acoustic guitar. This part of show just continues to impress me. Specifically the songs he has chosen to perform acoustically. These songs include "lonesome Tears" on the theremin, Debra which won over the audience completely, Golden Age and Clap your hands which may be my favorite song of the show. It was great to hear old song like "Pay no Mind" and "he’s a mighty Good Leader". However the fact that no songs from "mutations" were played was kind of disappointing. I will have a longer review of tomorrow show on Saturday but for now here are some photos of Thursday’s performance.
