Last night, Beck appeared at the Barbican Centre in London as part of Doug Aitken’s Station To Station art project. He was responsible for putting together a performance that The Guardian called “part concert, part theatre,” and brought Thurston Moore, Simon Armitage, Jemima Foxtrot, and Luke Wright up on stage to accompany him. The whole night was apparently cowboy-themed, with hired actors dressed up as Old West figures, a lot of cowboy hats, and some harmonica playing. Among the songs performed throughout the night were Beck’s Stereopathic Soulmanure track “Waitin’ For A Train,” “Wave” from Morning Phase, and Thurston Moore’s “Speak To The Wild.” Check out a little bit of Beck and Moore playing opposite each other below.
UPDATE: Here’s a short film about Beck’s performance.
