It feels like forever since we’ve heard Beck play his own songs. Lately, he’s been writing songs for others to play and playing songs by other people. But now, he’s heading for the road, and who knows what we can expect? It was recently announced that Beck would be one of the performers at this year’s Newport Folk Festival. He’ll also be playing a show on Bob Dylan and Wilco’s Americanarama Festival tour on July 27 at the Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, N.Y. Ryan Bingham will also be joining the show. Beck will also be playing a handful of solo acoustic dates. He’ll start off by playing a show in Santa Cruz, Calif., on May 19 and wrap up with a show at Brooklyn’s Prospect Park Bandshell on Aug. 4.
