Baltimore duo Beach House (Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally) have announced a series of installation shows, concerts they will perform as a duo at art spaces, galleries, community centers, and various alternative venues in these cities: Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, Boston, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Baltimore, Austin, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle. The band will be performing "within a special installation the band created for this tour." 

Venues will be announced 24-48 hours before each show, after tickets have been purchased. Tickets for the March dates go on sale tomorrow (Friday, February 26) at 11 AM EST via the band's website. Ticket info for the rest of the dates will be announced soon.

Beach House included these additional details on their website:

"WHAT TO EXPECT

We are going to install a design we have created and play as a two-piece within this 'installation.' The performance will be continuous without breaks. Due to the lack of stages, the audience will be expected to sit on the floor (bring a pillow!). The show will feature songs mostly from Thank Your Lucky StarsDevotion, and our self-titled record (songs we can play as a two piece). This is by no means a 'stripped down' or intentionally intimate performance. The design requires a maximum audience of 200, so that all can see the performance space.

THE CONCEPT

It has always been difficult to carry the initial moments of creativity that inspire our music through the process of making and releasing a record. There are many chances along the way for the feeling to get lost. A lot of 'bedroom' bands experience this when they get to the studio or the stage. This installation performance is an attempt to elicit this pure, embryonic state of mind for ourselves and our audience.

A NOTE ON TICKET PRICES

The ticket costs for these alternative-space performances are much higher than our normal shows. This is due to the very high production costs and low ticket number. The ticket price is set as low as possible in order to cover our costs and not lose money on the show. We sincerely apologize if it's unaffordable for any fans who may want to attend."

Beach House put out two albums in 2015. They released Thank Your Lucky Stars in October via Sub Pop, despite just releasing their last album, Depression Cherry, at the end of August. Here's our review of Thank Your Lucky Stars. Also read our recent interview with Beach House's Victoria Legrand about Depression Cherry.
