Last night's show was fantastic on multiple levels. Beach House dominated our ears, and soul, as always. Vetiver proved that the semi-new direction they were headed was the right adventure for Andy Cabic to choose. And, Sian Alice Group did a wonderful job priming the crowd for the headliners.

I wasn't sure what to expect from Vetiver's live performance, but I certainly got what I had hoped. Andy Cabic's voice translated well to a live setting, hitting all the necessary marks and then some. His songs were well-accentuated by the band, adding even more emphasis to each songs' ups and downs. Looking forward to the Record Store Day 7 inch, featuring the catchy-as-hell song they closed with.

Oh, Beach House. I've ranted and raved about them before, and last night's show was just another notch under the belt. The new songs are absolutely amazing, somehow adding even more depth and energy without tampering with their simplistic and mystical sound. Their stage presence has grown epically, creating a whole new dynamic to their already breathtaking performance. Perfect Wednesday evening all in all.
