Beck Going Country For One Show Only

November 11, 1997 12:00 AM ET

Beck fans, start practicing your twangs! The alt-folk artist has announced a country-blues concert on Nov. 19 at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles.

The one-off show, titled Beck Acoustic With Friends, was inspired by Beck's performance with Willie Nelson at Farm Aid earlier this year, according to Dennis Dennehy, Beck's publicist at Geffen Records. Beck and Nelson performed, "Peach Pickin' Time in Georgia," a Jimmie Rogers song. For the one-time show in L.A., Beck's set list will be culled from his own material as well as some Rogers-inspired tunes.

Joining Beck on stage will be 19-year-old fiddler Gabe Witcher, Jay Dee Maness on pedal steel and Little Feat keyboardist Billy Payne.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
