In Cork, Ireland! Is indeed a bummer, but not the worst. The reason I couldn't afford to get a ticket in the first place is I'm heading to Roskilde Festival at the end of the week, so that definitely eases the wound!
Beck is great. I've been listening to him since this song came out. I haven't missed an album. He's never disappointed me with his music. For my money, Sea Change is one of my favorite albums. I have listened to that album many, many times.
