Beck performs at Pancho Villa

20 July 2005

A friend of a friend reports: a couple of nights ago the mariachi-style guitarist/singer one commonly sees at the Pancho Villa Taqueria in San Francisco's mission district was replaced by none other than Beck. And he has photos to prove it:

Apparently, Beck wasn't widely recognized. That, or people were more interested in their burritos than in some rock star's free impromptu acoustic set.

Me? I totally would've been there if I'd known about it. I think Pancho Villa should start a concert series. Would be very good for burrito sales, I suspect.

That is quite possibly the coolest thing I have heard this week. Go Beck! I wonder if he got any tips?

I wonder if we can get him to play at the Tento!!! Silverlake isn't that far away. I can see it now:

"Two fish tacos and a microphone!"

And we could get sodas from the 7-11 down the street!!! YES!!!

Or maybe not.

I don't believe that's Beck! No way.

I offer my humblest apologies. That WAS in fact Beck. I'm a big fan of his and when I saw the water cooler behind him, I refused to believe it. It's hard to believe, but it's true. Coolest thing I ever heard.
