Beach House

Tuesday: As much as rock fans can get excited about a somber, serene, shoegazing pop band, many Twin Citians have been bursting with anticipation for the return of Beach House. The Baltimore duo, led by siren-voiced, French-born singer Victoria Legrand, has been slowly making the rounds in support of its breakout album, "Bloom," an ethereal collection of broken-heartbeat-paced, Cocteau Twins-style, gray-day songs that earned a 9.1 rating from Pitchfork and many more raves upon its release in May. It may not be a Springsteen-epic show, but Legrand and partner Alex Scalley know how to make these songs fly on stage. Opening band Poor Moon features Christian Wargo and Casey Wescott of Fleet Foxes. (8 p.m. Tue., First Avenue. Sold out.)
