Leg: Post-Morning Phase Leg 1 (Southern US)
Venue: North Charleston Coliseum and Performing Arts Center
City: North Charleston
State: South Carolina
Country: United States
Beck played for the first time in South Carolina tonight, the 4th show of this little tour leg.
The bootleg is sort of muddy, but does seem to clear up a bit as it goes. Solid show too, with a pretty long setlist (as Beck tells the crowd, "We rarely get down here so we'll cover a lot"). The set is highlighted by the first "Go It Alone" in awhile--never really a common song on stage, it probably can be considered a deep cut. [Update: This show started it, but "Go It Alone" became a regular song after this point for a number of years.]
"Wave" gets tried for the only time on this leg; with the smaller 5-man band, maybe it was tougher to recreate quite right (as they had no trouble in 2014 with 7 musicians). "Lonesome Whistle" gets a nice reception because it mentions South Carolina in the first line; unsure if Beck made this connection or was just playing one of his favorite songs!
