Beck, Spoon, and MGMT at the Hollywood Bowl 9/20/08

Tonight two of our members here at Fancy Sounds attended the Beck show at the hollywood bowl. I had never seen any of the people playing before, and our other member had only seen Beck once when he was only five so it was pretty much a first for both of us. MGMT started the show off with a bang doing a set that is perfectly described by simply saying short and sweet. They played the ones everyone wanted to hear plus a few, and left. Spoon was next, and I really enjoyed them. They played a great variety of songs off of several of their albums. With a great horn section and great singing from their front man Britt Daniel they really got everyone going. Then Beck came on, and really made the crowd go wild. He started out with Loser so right away everyone was on their feet. He played some of his more up-tempo songs then brought out the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra to play with him which was really spectacular. It was a great show, and of course if you get the chance to see any of these guys live take it.

As a bonus for you guys reading that painfully long and dull review of the show I've got some treats. Or if you didn't read the review, and just skipped right on down to the bottom then enjoy anyway I guess...

And you can find some of the other MGMT remixes and things we've posted here. Or wait, here. Or maybe here? Who knows.
