Secret Information

By Fritz Hahn

Here's a Halloween surprise for you: Beck is playing the Black Cat tonight.

After Benjy Ferree, the Archie Bronson Outfit and Apples in Stereo finish on the mainstage, Beck, who's pushing a new album called "The Information," is taking over the backstage for a midnight performance with a small backing band. (This is getting to be a habit for Mr. Hansen -- he did an unannounced late-night show in New York on Thursday.)

Black Cat staff confirmed the show is taking place but didn't have too many details, including the ticket price. I'm told tickets for Beck go on sale at 9, an hour after doors open for the main show upstairs. Expect long lines -- you should probably leave work now and head over to 14th Street if you want to have a chance of getting in -- but this is an unbelievable chance to see Beck in a room that holds about 150 people, rather than the massive Patriot Center, where he played on his last tour.

There is a thread about the show on the 930 Club's message board. Sign up and read for yourself, I can't be bothered to re-post it :)

the show was amazing. the band was hilarious and he took plenty of requests. they played for just over an hour on "borrowed instruments." the highlight, in my opinion, was the "emo" version of "guess i'm doing fine."

beck mentioned that the black cat owner told him if they did a good job than maybe they "could play upstairs next time." har-har.
