Gene Clark's NO OTHER to be performed on tour
No Other is the 1974 album by Gene Clark, a founding member of the the Byrds. At the time of its release, it was viewed as a critical and commercial failure, but over time, it's become a cult favorite. Next month, that album will be celebrated on a brief tour where it'll be performed note-for-note by a supergroup featuring Beach House, plus members of Fleet FoxesGrizzly Bearthe Walkmen, and more.
The band will include Beach House's Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally. Lead vocal duties will be handled by Fleet Foxes' Robin Pecknold, Grizzly Bear's Daniel Rossen, the Walkmen's Hamilton Leithauser, Iain Matthews of Plainsong/Fairport Convention, and Legrand. The rest of the band features Wye Oak's Jenn Wasner, plus members of Lower Dens, Cass McCombs' band, Celebration, and Mt. Royal. 
Beach House wrote this statement on the album:
Though we generally love all of his music, we are most infatuated with his 1974 record, No Other. It feels like a special moment in Gene Clark's songwriting. At first, the overdone, studio nature of the album feels overbearing: the electric violin, the female chorus, the bass riffs, the layered guitar sequences. However, with more listens, Gene Clark's very unique lyrics, voice and spirit become the central focus. It's one of those records where each time you listen, you love a different song the most. Every song is nuanced and amazing in its own way.
Before the performances, they'll show an edit of a new documentary on Clark and No Other called The Byrd Who Flew Alone. Check out a trailer for that documentary below. DJ BLT, aka Brad Truax (Soldiers of Fortune, Black Mountain, Spiritualized), will also open with a set of music related to No Other.
