Puppetron Rocks!

One of my favorite artists, Beck, was in town on Friday and I was lucky enough to get to go see him. It rocked. I'd heard that he was performing partly with puppets and I was skeptical but man, those puppets were so cool it's crazy. He had a mini stage setup with puppets of the band performing behind the real guys. Then the puppets were broadcast on the big screen behind the stage so you saw Beck, and Puppet Beck performing everything. It wouldn't have worked with very many bands, I'd think, but Beck has always had a playful / weird streak so it completely worked. I was happy enough with this show that I'm not really all that disappointed that I'm probably not going to get to see Tom Petty and Pearl Jam in Denver next weekend.
