William Beckett, former The Academy Is.. leader steps up this time for an acoustic and solo performance of great quality. The host reminds me of Jonah Hill just a fuzzy hipster but he does a great job filling the air in a no flash way.
Watching made me remember how charismatic Becketts voice was. A handsome kid who got tangled up in the same ol 'Fueled For Ramen" scene of Fall Out Boy and just missed the mark. What a beautiful sound when the girls aren't screaming along.
Suddenly I am very excited to be covering his show in Hamden CT next month. Plans in the works to have a few words with William to discuss life changes and all that jazz.
This video is such a joy and its great to hear the filler banter. Strained a bit at times but fun and painless.
Its a stinking Vimeo so here is the link http://vimeo.com/38243201
