Organized by the Quiet Beatle's son and musician, Dhani Harrison, 2014's George Fest wasn't a typical tribute concert. Instead of stacking the set list with only his father's most well-known songs, he and the all-star cast tackle an ambitious number of deep cuts. So while the audience are treated to perfectly touching versions of "Something" and "My Sweet Lord" from Norah Jones and Brian Wilson respectively, they also are exposed to The Flaming Lips' profoundly trippy "It's All Too Much" and Jamestown Revival's folk-rock take on the Rubber Soul-era nugget "If I Needed Someone." But perhaps the night's most powerful and spellbinding moment comes courtesy of relative unknowns The Black Ryder, who transform the intensely personal ballad "Isn't It a Pity" into a dark, Gothic-tinged meditation on heartbreak and loss. Only too fitting.
