Life’s a Beach::: Cork Opera House 27/10/12

Word on the street is that tonight’s Beach House concert is fast approaching a sellout. If you’re lucky enough to have a golden ticket then you’re in for a treat as the Baltimore duo have been wowing audiences and critics alike on their current Frightened Eyes tour.

Fans can expect plenty of numbers off the current album ‘Bloom’ and of course a healthy smattering of hits from their breakthrough record ‘Teen Dream’. This punter is certainly looking forward to seeing them for the first time. They entered my radar with 2008’s ‘Devotion’ and they havn’t strayed far off it since with their star certainly in the ascendancy in recent years. I was quite surprised and delighted to see that they were going to be paying a vist to the banks of the Lee.

I had the pleasure of speaking with Singer/Keyboardist Victoria Legrand a couple of weeks ago and she was the kind of commited muso that makes music nerds like me buy records in the first place. So theres supposedly a few balcony tickets left for tonight, if you want to avoid the jazz hordes and catch a genuinely brilliant band then do yourself a favour and rock along to the Opera House.

Beach House play Cork Opera House tonight and Vicar St, Dublin tomorrow night.
