Beacon

Speaking of openers on larger tours playing Mercury Lounge shows, Beacon, who are currently on a tour with Tycho, which hits MHOW on February 4 with Oneohtrix Point Never (tickets), just announced a show at the NYC venue happening on March 2 with Xylos and Grimace Federation. Tickets, currently on AmEx presale, go on public sale Friday (1/27) at noon.

Tycho, before hookin up with Beacon (who do their cover of Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night" in their live set), played a show earlier this month in Chicago with Active Child. You can see pics and read about that HERE. Beacon released an EP in 2011.

All Beacon tour dates, a stream of them covering Portishead's "The Rip", and the video they made for their Katy Perry cover, below...

A Katy Perry cover? Is there anything that's not done ironically anymore?
