# Buy tickets for Beck at AOL Box Office.

He’s shared the stage with everyone from the Olivia Tremor Control to Devo, lent voice to slackerdom with 'Loser,' survived the new pollution, unleashed a flock of midnight vultures and lent new dimension to the term "funky;" in short, Beck has breathed new life into the realm of popular music. Ever the one-man groove patrol, he’s a technical wunderkind whose imaginative studio trickery and natural songwriting prowess bridge the gaps between rock, hip-hop and techno sounds. Whether he’s stepping out as a lounge lizard or a young MC, Beck's a captivating performer, even if he’s strapping on an acoustic six-string for an unplugged set (as he will be for his current cross-country jaunt) or heading up his own groove armada. Between live dates, he’s putting the finishing touches on his next full-length album, due out September 2002. -- Susan Moll
