The Gene Clark No Other Band at Music Hall of Williamsburg
23 May 2014
Back in January, Beach House assembled an all-star band to perform No Other, the 1974 cult album by founding Byrds member Gene Clark. The band included Beach House’s Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally, Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold, Grizzly Bear’s Daniel Rossen, the Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser, Iain Matthews of Plainsong/Fairport Convention, Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner, plus members of Lower Dens, Cass McCombs’ band, Celebration, and Mt. Royal. The Gene Clark No Other Band embarked on a short East Coast tour that included a performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. Pitchfork.tv filmed that performance, and video of the whole show is now available.
Featuring Ballroom alums Beach House, Jen Wasner of Wye Oak, Daniel Rossen of Grizzly Bear, and members of the Cass McCombs Band. A fitting way to ring in the weekend.
