The burlap flowers and the cocaine dirt.
Don’t be alarmed / it won’t do you no harm
Things will always find their way / from the back roads to the bay
I was just left behind / to drink down the dregs of you
Cast a stone on the grave / Of the plans that you made
When it makes no sense I will act like it does.
Pittsburgh Performers Interpret Beck’s Latest Album of Sheet Music.
Beck Hansen’s latest project, ‘Song Reader’, is an album of sheet music released by McSweeney’s in December. Pittsburgh musician Richard Gartner decided to arrange it for a ten-piece ensemble to perform in its entirety. The performance will be held at Club Cafe on Wednesday, April 3rd.
The twenty songs of ‘Song Reader’ run the gamut in style from ballad to burlesque, ragtime to country. Beck did not make recordings, and is relying on others to interpret the pieces.
Like a guest you can’t impress
Put a dollar on a martyr / who rode a dead horse home. April 3rd at Club Cafe.
