Bumbershoot Mysteries: Hair Edition

Does anyone know if this is Beck’s natural hairstyle, or are the golden locks part and parcel of the fedora?


On an unrelated note, some of your correspondents were shocked at how poor the audio mixing was during Beck’s headliner show last night in Memorial Stadium. Particularly his first song, Loser, during which he was nearly inaudible, but even after that, the vocals never became as loud or distinct as you might hope. Was this just because we were off-axis stage right?

Other discussion topics from yesterday’s Main Stage: proper etiquette for discouraging shoulder-sitting view-blockers. Gum thrown in hair and well-aimed blinky frisbees were all on display last night as preventative techniques.

    are you asking if beck’s hair is real? because he took the fucking hat off during his performance…maybe you were busy looking at the purty frisby?

    Hi taint, thanks for the info — we were sort of triple-booked during this set, and so had to depart Beck’s set before the fedora-lifting. At least we got to hear "Loser." Thanks for the hair update! Bonus points if you took a picture…
