Washed Out @ Bowery Ballroom
Washed Out

[Washed Out's] set wasn't quite an hour long but it covered the bases. The undulating synths of "Hold Out" off the Life of Leisure EP opened the show, as footage of waves flashed on the screen behind the band. Next a new song, "Echoes" was introduced, with soaring melodies no longer buried and double tambourines to provide a bigger sound to the live mix. Greene asked for help with singing "New Theory," as the crowd exploded with recognition of the hit. A sax player was brought on stage for a solo in "Soft" and stayed for a revised arrangement of "Feel It All Around." Then the lead off track of the new release, "Eyes Be Closed," served as the encore with the band exiting to the final chords of the song continuing from an empty stage. -[NewMusicMatters]
Washed Out headlined the sold-out Bowery Ballroom last night (7/11) with Blood Orange (aka Lightspeed Champion Dev) and Grimes. The show, a one off for Washed Out, was a celebration for his new LP Within and Without, which is out now and currently streaming in full. Washed Out will be back in the area with Cut Copy in September. All dates are listed again below.

Grimes recently released the video for "Beast Infection" from the Geidi Primes rerelease due on 8/8/2011. Order that here, and if you missed her, you can check her out at one of her dates below which include August 20th at PS1, again with Blood Orange, as well as Juan Maclean, Solange, and Pictureplane.

washed up x2

blood orange was ok, he needs a backing band. grimes was.... out of practice (at least she admitted it) and well, not bad but not good. but washed out was really excellent. i didn't know what to expect, but he and his band put on a phenomenal show. he was really happy looking, and had a lot of enthusiasm. the band itself was really great and added a whole new dimension from what his recorded stuff is like. i'd go see them again.
