You heard right about the sound mix for Beck. ASS. ASS AND A HALF. ASS INFINITY.

His microphone barely worked for the first few songs, so the backup vocals were louder than him. The kick drum was so loud that everything distorted and the bass was so loud in the mix all you heard was this shitty distorted low rumbling, muffled vocals, and (occasionally) something that kind of sounded like guitar or keyboards. The bass hogged all the frequencies so you really didn't hear anything else.

ASS. And I don't know if that's Bumbershoot's fault or if Beck had his own sound guy (I saw him a few years ago elsewhere and the sound mix was similar, so that's why I suspect it was his own people), but if it was Bumbershoot's fault, I'd like to thank them for fucking up what could have been a really cool show. As much as I love Beck, I only stayed for about half the set because it sounded so shitty.
