Beach House, Sweet Beach House
Yet again, another b-b-b-b-b-eyond amaaaaaa-zing Beach House show in San Francisco! I can't believe I've seen them 3 times in the past 2 years: 1st at the Swedish American Music Hall, 2nd at Bottom of the Hill, and then 3rd (Wednesday night) at Bimbos in North Beach. I'd say I'm a fan. I'd say this is working for me. I'd say I'll be back. They put on SUCH a good show, as they continue to deliver dreamy songs on dreamy albums. Beach House. Devotion. Teen Dream.
Photographer-for-Rolling-Stone-magazine I am not, but I do like the funky colors and chaotic structure these photos took on. I never get good shots at these shows, but it's not about that, now is it. It's about the mental images and sounds I take home with me...those are the ones that have the most clarity and develop the most meaning. Those are the ones that will stick with me until the next show. Those are the ones that will make it easier to wait for it.
