Tonight in Rock: No Beck for You!
Beck was scheduled to do his usual pre-tour ritual of a shortly notified concert at The Echo tonight. Tickets were already sold out online, but about an hour ago, the show was canceled for reasons unknown at this point. However, tickets are most definitely still available for his September 20th show at the Bowl where he'll play with MGMT and Spoon.
