Dustin Wong rumored to be "tour dating" both members of Beach House! He could also simply be sharing tourdates with them. You decide!

Do you like Beach House? How about their Baltimore brethren Dustin Wong? Now, hold on tight to your seat, because if you answered an emphatic YES to both of those questions (and we know you did), we are about to make your day. Wong’s label (Thrill Jockey!) has confirmed that the former Ponytail guitarist, whose 2012 record, Dreams Say, View, Create, Shadow Leads (TMT Review), gets a lot of play around TMTHQ, will be opening for everyone’s favorite Dream Pop duet toward the end of summer. He’ll keep audiences bouncing along nicely to his arpeggiated guitar constructions before Ms. Legrand woos everyone into a stony haze with her dark and distant voice and Alex Scally’s reverb-drenched backing.

If you don’t care for Beach House but still want to see Dustin Wong live, we have some alternative options for you. Leave before Beach House starts their set, or if you live in NY or LA, Wong will be playing a few shows with The Mountain Goats this weekend, then will be in NY for a sold out show with Dirty Projectors the following weekend. It’ll be a Wong-filled summer if ever there was one!
