I saw Beach House in May 2007 and described them as “painfully shy”. The quiet band is back in town, now more popular than ever, selling out the Palace Theatre next Friday.
Papercuts (who was last seen in Sep 2014) to open.

Indie-folk singer/songwriter Andrew Combs recently released a collection of cover songs under his new EP Covers & A Song. You may recall we saw Combs in Mar 2018 and said, “The evening opened with a solo forty-five minutes from Dallas-born, Nashville-based musician Andrew Combs, who charmed with his expressive songs and dry wit. Combs has supported the likes of Shovels and Rope and Jason Isbell and has a handful of records under his belt, including last year’s Canyons of my Mind, and seems inspired on many songs, by his wife.”
Joining him on tour is Frankie Lee.
