Beck, Devendra Banhart @ Santa Barbara Bowl, Santa Barbara 5/24/12

Beck is back. With the exception of his appearance at the Serge Gainsbourg tribute and a warm up show two nights before, It has been a few years since he has performed live. Coinciding nicely with his recently announced “I Just Started Hating Some People Today” on Third Man Records, Beck whipped through a 21-song set at the Santa Barbara Bowl with his Sea Change-era backing band that includes Roger Manning (Jellyfish) and Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83 Producer/Nine Inch Nails touring bassist). The hovering helicopter and multiple cameras setup throughout the venue left the impression that the performance would be released in the future. Devendra Banhart provided support.
