ACL semi-live blogging - Beach House

OMG! How adorable are Beach House? I'll tell you how adorable: I had previously thought them one of the more boring bands in existence. But today's performance totally charmed me, and the several thousand others watching the band.

Starting their set with a cheering "peace,love and pizza parties" Beach House took the title of good vibes band with a dreamy, psychedelic set complete with calypso rhythms and onstage teepees. Singer Victoria Legrand stole the audience's heart with her constant compliments, going so far as to sing a verse of REM's "Shiny Happy People." in fact, the college freshmen-aged boys behind me were moved to shout out numerous marriage proposals. Consider me converted.
