Beck and Cage Play Forest Hills

Saturday, August 17th, Beck and Cage The Elephant played at Forest Hills Stadium, along with Spoon and Sunflower Bean.  It was a hot and humid night, but all performers I saw put on great shows.

The lead singer of Cage wore many, many, many layers of clothing and took pieces off throughout the performance.  Somehow he was able to do this despite the heat.  At the end, he crowd surfed across the entire audience, climbed on top of the mixing booth, then walked up the stadium into the audience.

Beck's setlist displayed his ability to mix different genres of music and make it all work.  He mentioned during the show that half his family was from Queens!
