Friday 2nd November // Beach House // The Roundhouse, London
As ever – you snooze, you lose! After mere hours of being on sale Beach House sold out May dates at Village Underground and Brighton’s Haunt last week. But fear not – the band will perform at The Roundhouse this November. Snap tickets up now.
Tickets will go on sale at noon on Friday, though for exclusive pre-sale tickets visit the Beach House website tomorrow.
Portland folk hero M. Ward visited the Spotify House during SXSW Monday for an intimate performance of “Sad Sad Song,” and also spoke to Rolling Stone about uncovering blues greats via The Beatles, the great days of radio in his native L.A., being a creative vagabond for his new album, Wasteland Companion and what he learns from collaborations with She and Him and the Monsters of Folk.
The No Direction Home lineup is shaping up to be quite fantastic; and, frankly, we wouldn’t expect anything less from the folks behind End of the Road festival.
Bella is well represented, and in the latest raft of added bands, Father John Misty joins the likes of The Low Anthem, Dirty Three, Andrew Bird, Lanterns on the Lake and Veronica Falls.
The festival takes place in Sherwood Forest, so don your green tights and buy a ticket.
From The Walkmen’s website:
Hi everyone. Our album is finally done and we’re thrilled with it. We can’t wait to get it out there.
To celebrate the huge amount of hard work that went into it, we’re sharing this embarrassing recording of a spontaneous outburst of frustration that occurred during the very rigorous sessions. It’s our way of blowing off steam I guess. Please forgive us. Producer Phil Ek recorded it on the sly actually.
None of us really remembered it until the last day of mixing when Phil–who by that point had also lost his mind–sat down and patiently mixed it. Enjoy.
Here is an old photo of U2, incase you have either a) forgotten what Young Bono looked like or b) have never seen Young Bono:
