Beck now comes in all styles and colors
Beck once again has the critics ga-ga with his most recent Midnite Vultures, a sultry party album that has drawn many comparisons to Prince's early work
. Reports from his tour opener in Austin have been just as complimentary, with Beck's group dripping with Funk and the singer himself prancing around the stage like a Some Girls
-era Mick Jagger. If you saw his performance at the American Music Awards cermemony earlier this year, you know what you're in for -- a stage show that's part James Brown, part Mumenchanz
. Groovy, man. And Hank the Third should prove to be an interesting opener: The prince of Country royalty makes raucous and pure C&W sounds with flourishes of Punk and Metal.
At Taft Theatre on Friday.
