Jack and Meg are currently on a North American tour and this week, have been playing a mini-residency at the city’s Greek Theatre.

At Wednesday’s gig (August 17) Beck joined the band onstage for the encore. First they duetted on a version of the singer’s track ’Cold Brains’. Then, Beck picked up the bass and played on ’Get Behind Me Satan’ track ’The Denial Twist’.
