Worth the Drive: Beach House in Atlanta


Beach House
8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 6, at Buckhead Theatre, Atlanta, thebuckheadtheatre.com, $25
Drive time: approximately 6.5 hours
Why: The haul to Atlanta is always a hard sell, but Sub Pop darling Beach House won’t be gracing Florida with their lush 2015 release Depression Cherry, which is a return to their earlier more subdued melodic tendencies and oozes with mood. They wrote it to buck their recent (and uncharacteristic) impulse to crank up their sound to fill bigger rooms, an adaptation they attempted as the band drew larger crowds. Show them it’s the right idea to stick to their inner compass – we’re just sorry it takes setting your car’s GPS to support the spirit.
