Cult singer/songwriter Beck turned his star-studded Los Angeles show on Sunday (24Nov13) into a family affair when his father stepped up to conduct the orchestra backing him at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. David Campbell conducted the 61-piece Los Angeles Philharmonic at his son's third Song Reader concert. They welcomed Jack Black, Childish Gambino, Jarvis Cocker and actor John C. Reilly to the stage, but perhaps the night's highlight came when Oscar winner Anne Hathaway joined Jenny Lewis to harmonise with Beck on the song Last Night You Were a Dream. Aside from the performances, there were also spoken word moments delivered by lyricist Van Dyke Parks and filmmaker Allison Anders, among others.
