Beck announced "Song Reader" show in Hollywood, Consequence of Sound reports. Over the summer, he performed the songs live for the first time in London. Now, Rolling Stone reports that Beck has announced another "Song Reader" performance for November 24th at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. Similar to his London performance, Beck will be accompanied by a cavalcade of special guests, including Pulp's Jarvis Cocker, Jenny Lewis, Childish Gambino, Van Dyke Parks, and actor-turned-musician John C. Reilly. What's more, Beck's father, David Campbell, will conduct the concert. The concert is being presented by eyeglass company Warby Parker, and as part of their partnership, Beck has designed a pair of frames. Named Carmichael, they’ll be available for purchase in mid-November.

    I just hope people remember the point of Song Reader: it was released as sheet music to be played in any way you see fit. This performance with Beck and his many guests is only one way this group could play it. You should still try to play it yourself. Now go make another album I can listen to Beck, cuz I can't read sheet music.
