Beck & MGMT play surprise show in Chicago (Video)

    Beck, MGMT and Chicago radio station WXRT teamed up to bring fans a surprise set at Martyrs before their previously announced show at the Aragon later that evening. In an attempt to make an already awesome thing even more awesome than you’d imagine, much of the set was comprised of covers of the Beatles, the Velvet Underground, Mott the Hoople, Hendrix and every other cool artist you’ve ever heard of. Ever. The set contained around a dozen musicians from both bands for a stripped-down, acoustic performance as a warm up for the larger scale show where even more musical ass-kickery surely occurred.
