Beach House at the Trocadero Theatre – Philadelphia
Last Thursday February 24, 2011 Beach House played again in Philadelphia.
The Baltimore band led by French-born Victoria Legrand captivated us last year with their “Teen Dream” album, which was of course featured almost in its entirety in the set list of Thursday night. Legrand’s powerful voice filled the relatively small Trocadero Theatre, which appeared for the first time awfully small for a band of the impact of Beach House.
Their quick transformation into a favorite band is evident, appearing surprising even to the band itself. Last time in Philly, they played a much more intimate (and all seated) concert at the First Unitarian Church. The concert last week suggests that Beach House is certainly ready for larger venues that could offer a more enjoyable experience to everyone.
“Used to be”, “Zebra” and “10 mile stereo” were among the audience favorites, the latter selected as the ending track of the night. Me, I would stay with Victoria’s smile and peace sign after “Take care” just before their encore.
I hope to see this band again soon.
Below a video of “Take care” and their two encore songs of the night “Real Love" and their great ending with “10 Mile stereo”.
