The ‘Colours‘ artist made an impromptu appearance at The CA Wildfire Benefit Concert last night (December 18). Hosted by Father John Misty, the show promised to feature ‘very special guests’ when being announced by the ‘God’s Favorite Customer’ artist earlier this month.
Also on the bill were Haim and Father John Misty himself – who joined Beck as he surprised those in attendance with a live offering of his 1996 single, ‘Where It’s At’. Misty was behind the drumkit for the performance, while Este Haim played bass.

It’s not the first time Beck has played the track with his musical pals – having recently joined forces with Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl at the political event The Last Weekend. The pair also took to the stage together in September for another Swing Left fundraiser.
Meanwhile, Beck recently paid tribute to SpongeBob SquarePants creator Stephen Hillenburg, speaking of how the late animator created artwork for some of his early releases.
“Very sad to hear the news of the passing of Stephen Hillenburg,” Beck said, “who years and years ago used to be my neighbour and kindly did the artwork for the first music that I ever released.”
