Days after announcing a Modest Mouse date, the new Tech Port Center + Arena is continuing to lure in alternative-identifying fans “of a certain age.” Curiously, it seems San Antonio is carving space for “indie” acts who have “outgrown” the Paper Tiger. Beach House, the dream-pop duo comprised of Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally will take the Southside San Antonio stage this September. 

The band, which initially formed in Baltimore in 2004, first gained critical acclaim in 2006 with the release of their self-titled album. Subsequent projects include 2008’s Devotion, 2010’s Teen Dream, 2012’s Bloom, 2015’s Depression Cherry, and most recently, this year’s Once Twice Melody, the impetus for their upcoming descent upon the Alamo City. 

If you’re unfamiliar with Beach House, they’re the sort of group that makes albums almost guaranteed inclusion in Pitchfork’s “Best Albums of the Year” roundup after its released. The band has also been a fixture on the festival circuit over the years too. Maybe you’ve seen them play SXSW?

While evolving over the years, their sound is as melancholic as it is euphoric, sleepy, and hazy, creating a “floating through space” effect. Notable ethereally-inflected hits that you’ve probably heard on a Netflix or Hulu original include Depression Cherry’s “Space Song” and Bloom’s “Myth.”

Tickets are now on sale for the Thursday, September 22 show. Doors open at 6 p.m., the band will take the stage at 8 p.m. Tickets price points range from $31 to $61.
