Beck and The Ghost of Saber Tooth Tiger 

When: Tue., July 22, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $55-$75
Beck’s journey from unwittingly scoring a slacker hit with his 1993 single “Loser” to becoming a refined and complex songwriter who’s released a chain of quintessential albums of the ’90s, aughts, and beyond is singularly impressive. The Los Angeles native has traversed various musical styles throughout his career, embracing everything from lo-fi pop, junk culture, indie rock, soul, folk, and country songwriter fare, to establish himself as an inimitable presence on the cutting edge of American pop culture. Odelay, Mutations, Midnite Vultures, Guero … Beck’s discography speaks for itself, and his Bowie-like transcendence reaches an all-time high with his latest album, Morning Phase. Ostensibly pegged as the counterpart to 2002’s critically acclaimed album Sea Change, songs such as “Cycle,” “Heart is a Drum,” and “Blackbird Chain” place the man in the pantheon of Nick Drake, Tim Buckley, and the finest songwriters the world has known.
