SEATTLE SCHOOL OF ROCK COVER BECK'S SONG READER FOR A GOOD CAUSE

In the olden days, if you wanted to hear your favorite song, you'd get sheet music and play it yourself. Of course, in this age of Spotify/YouTube/iTunes/downloads/ instant gratification/overstimulation, that idea comes off as straight-up radical. So when Beck wrote his latest album, Song Reader, and released it as a 108-page book of art and sheetmusic instead of an actual recording, he left a grand experiment for fans to attempt to "cover" any of the 20 songs on the album.

You can't buy the record for Song Reader, but you can check out this show put on by the amazing School of Rock, who have taken on the challenge of arranging Beck's compositions in their own style. Plus, all proceeds will go to benefit 826 Seattle.
