Beck Concert Figures to Be the Year's Hottest


Byline: Mark Guarino Music critic

Beck with the Flaming Lips, 7:30 p.m. today at the Chicago Theatre, 175 N. State St., Chicago. $37 (312) 559-1212. Sold out.

If you looked back to pick the hottest concert bill this year, there's no doubt this one would be top of the list. Beck and the Flaming Lips respectively bowed two of the year's best new albums recently and although each one is not like the other - the Lips' is grand orchestral pop, Beck's is slow psychedelic country - each will complement the other on this tour. The Lips open with a full set, then hang around to back Beck on his songs.

Peaches, 10 p.m. today and Saturday at the Abbey Pub, 3420 W. Grace St., Chicago. $15/$18 (773) 478-4408.

The underground art punk scene has a substitute for everything in the mainstream. So for every Lil' Kim and Courtney Love flashing their chests on stadium concert stages nationwide, there's Peaches, a potty-mouth synth pop Berlin-ite whose debut, "The Teaches of Peaches" (Kitty-Yo) was one of the most surreal, funny and rocking records released last year. Her set is part of the Electroclash 2002 Tour featuring like-minded electronic art rockers including Chicks On Speed, W.I.T., Tracy + The Plastics and Larry Tee.

The Waco Brothers, 11:45 p.m. Saturday at FitzGerald's, 6615 Roosevelt Road, Berwyn. $15 (708) 788-2118.

One of the best things about living in or around Chicago is the chance to regularly catch a show by the Waco Brothers, routinely the city's best live band. Country, rock and gonzo stage maneuvering are the order of this tight outfit, featuring individual members of the Mekons, Jesus Jones and Graham Parker and the Rumour. This show celebrates their new album, "New Deal" (Bloodshot) and is part of FitzGerald's annual Harvest Moon Festival featuring two stages and headliner sets from Sleepy LaBeef, The Iguanas, David Lindley and Wally Ingram, Rex Hobart and Sam Cockrell and the Groove.

Ben Taylor opening for the Derek Trucks Band, 10 p.m. Saturday at Martyrs, 3855 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago. $15 (773) 404-9494.

Ben Taylor is indeed the 25-year-old love child of Carly Simon and James Taylor, but besides being a dead vocal ringer for his dad, his music is not just strummy folk pop. …
