Beach House have announced two-piece "installation" shows, where they'll play songs off Beach House, Devotion, and Thank Your Lucky Stars. After recently extending their tour, the Baltimore band have announced a series of additional performances at art galleries, community centers, and similar venues this spring, which they're advertising as "installations." There, Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally will perform a continuous set, which will be capped at 200 audience members. And with no stage, audience members will have to sit on the floor. (The press release says to bring a pillow.)

The group had this to say about the installations: "It has always been difficult to carry the initial moments of creativity that inspire our music through the process of making and releasing a record. There are many chances along the way for the feeling to get lost. A lot of “bedroom” bands experience this when they get to the studio or the stage. This installation performance is an attempt to elicit this pure, embryonic state of mind for ourselves and our audience."

The band also noted that the ticket prices will be "much higher" than their regular shows, due to the high production costs and limited occupancy.
