Beck, Cat Power and Jakob Dylan were among the artists who appeared at a tribute to Sixties’ California acts like the Byrds, Beach Boys and Buffalo Springfield at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles.
The show, Echo In The Canyon, was loosely tied to the 50th anniversary of the Byrds’ debut album, Mr. Tambourine Man.
The Los Angeles Times reports that the show was part of a larger tribute project that also includes a studio album due next year.
Dylan served as band leader at the event, with other artists performing including Regina Spektor and Fiona Apple.
Dylan and Beck performed The Byrds’ “The Bells Of Rhymney” and “Goin’ Back” (from Notorious Byrd Brothers, but originally written by Goffin-King).
Cat Power joined Dylan to duet on the Turtles’ “You Showed Me”, written by Roger McGuinn and Gene Clark, as well as “Never My Love” by the Association.
Fiona Apple and Dylan performed The Beach Boys‘ “In My Room”.
Dylan also performed the Mamas And The Papas’ “Dedicated To The One I Love”, Buffalo Springfield’s “Questions” and the Monkees’ “She”.
