Dandy Warhols - Welcome to the Alternate Mix.

So, I just won tickets to see The Dandy Warhols tonight,which is a great start for the day. Thank you Criminal Records. To celebrate this good fortune, I thought I would share this version of "Welcome To The Monkey House." Not exactly sure the whole history on this. From what I can remember, I think this is before Nick Rhodes added his Duran Duran touches to the album. It gives the album a whole different sound. Its more of a dirty psychedelic rock sound than the released final version. Both are great just different. If you get a chance to see them live, don't pass it up. I had a great time seeing them on their last tour. Which makes me excited to see them tonite.

Beck, 2008-08-31, The Independent, San Francisco CA

You can check this concert out at Waves And Wires. Listen to the stream of the songs individually, or download the whole show. This is an audience recording of pretty good quality. It's in the B sounding range. It sounds rather distant and the crowd is definitely having a damn good time. Beck's been playing Bob Dylan's "Leopard Skin Pill-Box Hat" on this tour. Which is something worth checking out. So, go have a listen.
