A day late — sorry ’bout that — but here are a baker’s dozen fantastic photos of Sunday evening’s Beck / Metric show at Les Schwab Amphitheater, as taken by The Bulletin’s Joe Kline. Beck drew the smallest crowd of the weekend (4,500ish) but delivered a much more inspired set than he did last time he visited Bend in 2008. This time, he was engaged, smiling and having fun; he seemed into it. It helped, I think, that he played a set heavy with old stuff and powered by his old backing band from the 1990s. Anyway, more on the show later, for now, you really should scroll down and check out Joe’s shots.
