Tonight in Rock: Beck's 2nd Secret Show

Apparently Beck snuck into The Echo last night for a second secret show (first time caught on video). "Nobody on Wednesday’s regular bill seemed to mind that Beck crashed the party. It was the EP release show for singer-songwriter Daniel Ahearn’s 'Pray for Me by Name.' Once he got started, Ahearn (a familiar face in the venue since he pays some of his bills by tending bar at the Echo) thanked the man who preceded him onstage … with a wink," write Kevin Bronson on Soundboard. "'Good local artist,' Ahearn said. 'I think he’s going places.'”
As mentioned yesterday, after the Lakers win the game tonight or during/after your perusing of the Downtown Art Walk, the city's center won't be done for the night. Starting at 7 p.m. (and "goes all night") is Meet Your Muse with West Indian Girl as the headliners. It's an art meets music event with artists displaying their works and rumors of free Aashi beer. Free beer or not, the event is $5 and goes to charity (Goodlife planting trees, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation). It all happens at The 533.
