Beach House @ First Avenue

Beach House @ First Avenue Mainroom
October 9th, 2012 

Baltimore-based duet Beach House entranced a sold out crowd at First Avenue’s Mainroom on Tuesday.  If you weren’t in attendance, you could probably hear lead singer Victoria Legrand’s transcendent vocals from your St. Paul apartment.

Despite her dominating voice, Legrand spent the entire show towards the back of the stage, saying few words to the crowd.  Guitarist Alex Scally was equally modest with his guitar work, cutting loose on his baby blue stratocaster for just a few brief moments.  Older songs such as “Gila” and “Zebra” were warmly received.  “Walk in the Park” was the slowest beat of the night, yet everyone still nodded in satisfaction throughout.  It all built up to the highly danceable “Myth”, the single from their latest release.   

In their encore, Beach House played “10 Mile Stereo” and “Irene”, two of their louder, more aggressive songs.  On “Irene”, Legrand began headbanging like an eighties metalhead, and rightfully so.  Beach House has come a long way from their humble debut in 2006.  Get your tickets early next time; they’ll be selling out First Avenue for many years to come.
