Beach House at Minglewood 

This Monday night, Baltimore dream-pop act Beach House will perform at Minglewood Hall. Beach House are no strangers to the Midtown venue, as they played there in 2012 with Wild Nothing. Since then, the band has released multiple albums, including this summer's Depression Cherry. While the band can still be considered underground, they are on the fringe of "making it," along with other accessible dream-pop performers like Mac DeMarco. Beach House have such a strong following that the band recently revealed their "Set List Creator," a function of their website that allows fans to choose any three songs from their extensive catalog. If the song gets picked enough, the band will play it or something similar, as the band explained on Facebook: "While on tour, we change our set list every night, and certain songs get played only a few times per tour. This device will allow us to know if there is a large number of people wanting to hear a certain song in any one place. It's not that we will definitely follow it, but it will certainly influence our set lists."

Joining Beach House on tour is San Francisco songwriter Jessica Pratt. Birth Records, the semi-active label run by Tim Presley of White Fence, DRINKS, and W-X, released Pratt's debut album. Pratt has an amazing voice and quickly made the jump from Birth to Drag City (Ty Segall, Wand, White Fence) for her second album On Your Own Love Again. While Beach House definitely sound like a modern band, Pratt's music has a distinct timelessness to it, which should make for a interesting contrast at Monday night's show. As mentioned earlier, Beach House's fan base is growing at a rapid rate, so you may want to get tickets in advance.
