Washed Out at MHOW - 11/18/13 (via Ahnmin Lee)
Washed Out is currently on a tour which brought Ernest Greene & co. back to NYC for a Converse Rubber Tracks Live show at Music Hall of Williamsburg earlier this week (11/18), a much more intimate appearance than his last Terminal 5 show. His next NYC appearance will be when he DJs the J Roddy Walston show at Gramercy Theatre (12/14) (tickets). All upcoming Washed Out dates are listed below.
Speaking of Converse Rubber Tracks, they're launching a new project at the Brooklyn recording studio, CONS Project: BKN, which offers creative workshops for kids. Their "goal is push creativity forward by inspiring kids with creative ambition to unleash their creative spirit through engaging and edifying events." The workshops happen during three weekends, Nov. 23 & 24, Dec. 8 & 9, and Jan. 11 & 12. Select artists will be there, including El-P, Ryan Hemsworth, and more. Plus, El-P will headline an exclusive concert on January 24, following the workshops' final weekend. Registration is open now. More details below.

Slayer/Glass Candy/Polyphonic Spree/Slayer surfer @ FFF Fest 2013
Closing Fun Fun Fun Fest, Slayer treated Austin to greatest hits and then some: "Raining Blood," "South of Heaven," "Dead Skin Mask," "Seasons in the Abyss," etc. They also dug out the aforementioned "Die by the Sword," a high point off their 1983 debut LP, Show No Mercy.The eighth Fun Fun Fun Fest happened last weekend (11/8 - 11/10) at Austin's Auditorium Shores, hosting three days of music and fun (fun fun), with such acts as MIA, Deerhunter, Slayer, Television, Thee Oh Sees, Kurt Vile, Cut Copy. Johnny Marr, The Walkmen, Jurassic 5, Killer Mike and loads more. Many of them played again as part of the FFF Nites shows, including shows presented by BrooklynVegan and Invisible Oranges.
After fooling no one with a false ending of "South of Heaven," the third backdrop of the night unfurled at the back of the stage: a parody of the Heineken logo reading "Hanneman" and bearing his life dates. The top read "Angel of Death." Reign in Blood's terrifying opening track - and closing number on Auditorium Shores - now serves as an epitaph for Slayer's fallen co-founder. - [Austin Chronicle]
We were there in the thick of it and, as mentioned above, you can check out pics from Day 1 HERE and HERE, pics from Day 2 pics HERE and HERE; and pics from Day 3 are HERE and HERE. See you again in 2014 Austin.
Washed Out at FYF Fest 2013 (more by Wei Shi)
Earlier today, we were talking about the current Washed Out tour which comes to NYC for a DJ set on 12/14 at Gramercy Theater.

Like all Converse Rubber Tracks Live shows, it's FREE but you do have to get tickets, which go on "sale" Wednesday (11/6) at noon.

Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside
Bumbershoot is underway. Sets on the first day of the 2013 edition of the Seattle music festival included !!!, Kendrick Lamar, Crystal Castles, Sallie Ford & The Outside Sound, Charles Bradley, Washed Out, Gary Numan and more. Some of those artists also stopped by the Toyota Soundwave tent where our hosts Dave Hill and Billy Jones are holding things down as the hosts of the early afternoon BrooklynVegan presentation each day.
Gary Numan, who is touring in support of a new album, chatted with Dave and Billy about living in LA now, not liking Halloween, his kids, his appearance on Mighty Boosh and more before also DJing for a bit during the Purevolume-curated portion of the day.
Sallie Ford and her band The Outside Sound stopped by to rock out for a few songs in our intimate setting to lucky fans. Comedian Todd Barry, who is also touring and performing multiple times at the Seattle fest, chatted with Dave and Billy for a bit even if he wasn't 100% sure why he agreed to do it. And we closed our portion of Saturday down with a special interview with Washed Out's Ernest Greene who also came back to the tent to DJ later in the day. When no guests were on stage, Ernest told us about his new record, touring, going from playing bedrooms to playing large festivals, his wife who is also is in his band on tour with him, how when he opened for the Shins in Portland people didn't know him until he played the Portlandia theme song, and how both Big Boi and Elton John recorded in the same studio with him and his hope that maybe he can collaborate with both one day. Dave Hill, a musician himself (who has a new album coming out Tuesday!), took acoustic requests on guitar. Pictures from the whole Soundwave day are in this post.
Today (Sunday), we're doing a special three hour segment on the Soundwave stage in honor of Barsuk Records' 15th anniversary. Check out our full schedule HERE, and more pictures below...
Like we did at Firefly, Lollapalooza, and Outside Lands, BrooklynVegan will be taking over 2-3 hours of the Soundwave tent each day at Bumbershoot in Seattle this Labor Day Weekend. We'll have a mix of live interviews and performances with our hosts Dave Hill and Billy Jones, and a very special 3 hour session on Sunday dedicated to Barsuk Records' 15th anniversary.

MGMT / Beach House / giant cat
Before My Bloody Valentine performed, screens on the sides of the stage encouraged fans to pick up complimentary pairs of earplugs. It was not an idle warning: My Bloody Valentine was the loudest band I heard perform at the main stage all weekend, though a friend insists that The Melvins were louder.LA's two-day FYF Fest wrapped up on Sunday (8/25) with one of the few US appearances of 2013 from shoegaze legends My Bloody Valentine (who unfortunately didn't allow photographers), the continuously more psychedelic MGMT, and a mix of metal (Baroness, The Melvins), hardcore (Touche Amore), dream pop (Beach House, Washed Out), garage rock (The Orwells, Mikal Cronin) and more. In this post, we've got shots of MGMT, Beach House, Baroness, and Washed Out, plus Solange, Kurt Vile, Yo La Tengo, Chelsea Wolfe (who is currently streaming her new album), and more.
Shortly after the band's eagerly awaited m b v was released this year, I recall reading that after blowing out a few amps and multiple bouts of tinnitus, My Bloody Valentine was never quite able to fully re-create the Loveless tones in concert. Most of last night's songs sounded a little different, notably "Only Shallow," but the variances in guitar tones kept things interesting. Bilinda Butcher's voice still sounds the same and Kevin Shields still creates the swirling guitar sounds by using countless effects pedals.
The band performed quite a few Loveless tracks, with "When You Sleep" being an early stand out track. m b v's "New You" followed, once again showing off the band's digital effect skills. Even though m b v was released over two decades after Loveless, the band's old and new material meshed together seamlessly. [Phoenix New Times]
Pictures of day 1 are HERE, and more of day 2, below...
The VIrgin Mobile FreeFest is returning for its fifth year on September 21 at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD.

Washed Out (the nom-de-synthe Ernest Greene) is gearing up for the August 13 release of his third album, Paracosm, with a few events this week, two of which happen in NYC. On Friday (8/2), Williamsburg's funky ice cream shop OddFellows will debut its "Paracosm" flavor, which is rose-tinged raspberry ice cream. (It's not vegan, but they do have sorbets and other vegan options.) The "Paracosm" ice cream was worked on together by Greene and the folks at OddFellows, which is run by Sam Mason who used to be pastry chef at WD-50 and was host of IFC's Dinner with the Band. You can get free samples of at OddFellows on Friday from 4 PM - 8 PM and the album will be playing continuously in the store.
Then on Sunday, August 4, Greene will host a "Washed Out Pool Party" at the Lower East Side Thompson Hotel (which does indeed have a rooftop pool). The party goes from 2 PM - 7 PM and also features DJ sets from Chrome Sparks, Small Black and Lemonade. It's free with RSVP.
Before those NYC events, Greene will be at LA's Sonos Studio on Monday (7/29), performing stripped down arrangements of Paracosm songs in a special "light house" installation. Following the performance, Greene will sit down with NCSN deejay Nick Harcourt for a Q&A. That is free with RSVP as well.

The Moog Sound Lab is a video series where bands and artists are invited to perform in the Moog Music factory in Asheville, North Carolina. With an arsenal of Moog equipment at their disposal, the musicians offer radically new takes on their material.
The first in the series was Toro Y Moi. Now here's Washed Out, who revamp "Olivia," a song that was originally on main man Ernest Greene's first cassette release, High Times. Its '80s electro vibe gives way to much more lush, transportive textures here thanks to an arpeggiated riff using Moog's Little Phatty, and a gurgling low end courtesy of the Minitaur Analog Bass Synthesizer. You can watch Washed Out perform the Moog Sound Lab version of "Olivia" and check out more pics from the session, below.
Toronto art pop musician Sandro Perri has a few dates scheduled to take place surrounding his appearance at this year's FYF Fest. They're a bit scattered at the moment so it looks like more might be revealed, but we know that one of them is a NYC show which happens on September 20 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All currently known dates are listed below.
Sandro Perri is also one of the many musicians being featured on the new Arthur Russell tribute album, This Is How We Walk on the Moon, that AIDS organization Red Hot (who are also responsible for Dark Was the Night, Red Hot + Rio and many other compilations) and Pitchfork are putting out. Sandro will join Robyn, Cut Copy, Hot Chip, Dan Boeckner, Twin Shadow, Washed Out, Laurel Halo, Sam Amidon, Devendra Banhart, Olof Arnalds, Jose Gonzalez, Thao with the Get Down Stay Down, Chad VanGaalen, Glen Hansard, and many others for the album. The project is being funded on kickstarter. The Kickstarter video and a list of all participating artists is below.
Earlier this year, DFA put out a remix 12" of material from Sandro's 2011 LP, Impossible Spaces. The stream of Eluvium's remix of "Changes," a list of all currently known Sandro Perri dates, and the Arthur Russell tribute info are below.
Washed Out, House of Vans, 8/02/2012
As expected, the line to get into last nights House of Vans show (on 8/2) snaked blocks down Kent, at least to N 12th. The good news: everyone who stuck it out eventually got in. I saw that line and immediately thought, "Oh HELL, no" ...but good job you guys! I'm impressed. What a testament to your perseverance and commitment. Don't ever let anyone tell you you're apathetic.
I'm supposed to express my feelings about the show -- and don't worry, I'm going to -- but like, who really cares about my opinion on Lemonade, Chairlift and Washed Out? I don't even play any instruments. If you care so much to read this review, you should have gone to the damn show and formed your own opinions 'cause it was free and full of beautiful people so its not like it wouldn't have been a good time. Therefore I will keep my musing away from subjective assertions about the quality of the music and focus instead on other, even more inane points.
Lemonade, House of Vans 8/02/2012
Lemonade opened and OMFG how cute are those boys?! No seriously, their music was great and dancey but lead vocalist Callan Clendenin kept looking around and smiling like he was so happy to be there and smiles are contagious, people. I want to hang out with him all the time so when something bad happens he can smile at me. Get splashed with city bile by a bus on 14th St? Smile at me, Callan! Your dog ran away and you got fired? Don't worry, Lemonade is right around the corner, smiling at you. If only! In short, this is feel good music. It's summertime, y'all. If you missed them they're playing at PS1 with Jamie xx on Saturday (8/4) afternoon and then DJing Glasslands later that night.
Chairlift, House of Vans 8/02/2012
Next was Chairlift. Now, I'm not going to talk about the vocalist's sweet, foreign sounding wails. I'm not going to talk about how much she sounds like a less creative version of Lykke Li or Niki and the Dove and how you probably shouldn't waste your time unless you're one of those people who voluntarily chooses vanilla ice cream over coffee with Heath bar. Sometimes I want to listen to boring imitations of more innovative music, I guess. Most importantly, check out the chick's hair. You guys, I thought I had seen every possible version of ombré. I thought we Brooklyn women had taken the ombré trend and squeezed every last drop out of it -- everyone clamoring for their own original configuration, desperately convincing our hairdresser friends to come over and help, only to find us passed out on the floor of our bathrooms, hugging a bottle of Jameson with empty bleach and Manic Panic jars strewn about. It's hair, and it's serious. But Chairlift did it. I know I haven't seen every person in the world but I think she did it. And it's beautiful.
Chairlift are in Chicago this weekend, playing Lollapalooza Saturday (8/4) and an aftershow on Sunday (8/5) at Empty Bottle, then touring all over the place before opening for The xx at their two shows in the Bronx in October.
Washed Out, House of Vans 8/02/2012
Finally, Washed Out took the stage. Now, I'm not going to pretend to understand what happens when they play live shows. There is a lot of knob turning. I was anxious to find out how they make that lil 'bug-ee' noise on "Before" and I still don't know. All I know is it sounds a hell of a lot like "Dougie," as in "teach me how to" and can someone please mash those songs together for me?
I know this is a world of subjectivity and everyone is allowed their own opinions and whatnot, but if anything in the past six months was ever an indisputable fact, it's that Washed Out's last EP, Life of Leisure, is fucking amazing. Within and Without is pretty damn good too. If you don't agree, put away your obviously inferior feelings on the genre, get high and go swimming. Make out with someone soft. Pet a cat. Ride your bike to the beach. Sit on a stoop and drink a bottle of wine. By yourself. Do all of these things while listening to Washed Out and tell me that it isn't the most perfect soundtrack to your everyday life.
Washed Out are also in Chicago this weekend for Lollapalooza (tonight) and an aftershow(Sat 8/4 House of Blues) and will then hit the road with The Shins. Washed and and Chairlift dates are listed below, along with more pictures from House of Vans.
King Khan at The Bell House, Nov. 2011 (more by Keith Marlowe)
The full House of Vans 2012 free show schedule is up. The Greenpoint/Williamsburg space has already housed The Rapture and Tanlines this year, and we knew about the 7/12 show with H20, 7 Seconds and Tournament, but here's the rest of the summer's line-up, brought to you by the folks at FYF and the sneaker people:
July 12: H20, 7 Seconds, TournamentThe parties are free with RSVP (which hasn't been posted yet).
July 26: King Khan & The Shrines, Nicky Da B, The Everymen
Aug 2: Washed Out, Chairlift, Lemonade
Aug 16: Cursive, Titus Andronicus, Love As Laughter, Joyce Maynor
Aug 29: Turbonegro, Baroness, Doomriders, Nightbirds
One thing you notice not on this list is Quicksand which was one of the big rumors of this year's VANS schedule. That either means that Quicksand will play somewhere else, or like the upcoming free Dum Dum Girls/Widowspeak show, it won't be part of this series of "House Parties."
The July 26 show is one of many local dates from NJ's Everymen who are also playing Pianos this Friday, July 6 as part of the CBGB Festival. (Advance tickets are on sale.) After the House of Vans show, the band will go on a short East Coast tour while putting the finishing touches on their new album New Jersey Hardcore which will come out in October on Killing Horse Records. All Everymen dates are below.
Sleigh Bells at Terminal 5 in Feb 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
Sleigh Bells and The Kills will separately headline two Converse City Carnage concerts/skateboard events happening at Hudson River Park. The Sleigh Bells show happens Saturday July 21 and is with Jel and Mr. Dream; The Kills show happens August 18 and is with Black Bananas and Viva Viva.
Both shows are free but you do need physical tickets which can be ordered via Ticketmaster on June 22 starting at noon. You can also pick up tickets at Converse's Soho and Garden State Plaza retail locations.
Both shows are part of two-day events. The skateboarding part will take place on Fridays (July 20, August 17) and features Converse Skateboarding Ambassadors Kenny Anderson, Nick Trapasso, along with the entire Converse Skateboarding team. You can read more about it here. Leading up to City Carnage, Hudson River Park's Pier 62 Skate Park will get a facelift courtesy the sneaker folks.
The City Carnage show is part of Sleigh Bells expanded summer tour and all current dates -- some of which are opening for Refused -- are listed below.
In related news, The Kills are featured on a new Fleetwood Mac tribute album titled Just Tell Me That You Want Me. The Kills tackle karaoke favorite "Dreams" and elsewhere on the compilation you can hear Mac songs covered by Lee Ranaldo & J Mascis, Antony, New Pornographers (streaming below), Washed Out, Matt Sweeny & Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Best Coast, Lykke Li, Craig Wedren & St. Vincent, Tame Impala, MGMT and more. The album's out August 14 -- tracklisting and bad cover art is below.

When Georgia native Ernest Greene (aka Washed Out), sold out his first scheduled show at Highline Ballroom before I could get a ticket, I thought, "no fair" as I tweeted, and begged him to add another. I know it's probably not my doing, but much to the surprise and excitement of all his fans, he added Monday night's show at Music Hall of Williamsburg, with tour mates, the dream pop duo Memoryhouse.
Scheduled to begin at 9, Memoryhouse didn't go on until about 9:30. By that point Music Hall was packed elbow to elbow with a stiff crowd. For just having all their gear stolen they did a hell of a job, playing what seemed like most of their debut LP, The Slideshow Effect, including "Little Expressionless Animals", "All Our Wonder", and "The Kids Were Wrong".
And though they didn't play their thoughtful Zombies cover of "This Will Be Our Year", they did, of course, play My Bloody Valentine's, "When You Sleep".
A white board was placed in front of where vocalist Denise Nouvion was standing and singing, meant to display whatever well-thought out, projected visuals they wanted to go along with their set. Unfortunately, the board was tilted just slightly up, so what it mostly produeced were the shadows of audience members. This inevitably resulted in more of a hand puppet show than a Memoryhouse performance. This also blocked Nouvion, and distanced her from the audience. If you look at photos from their set at Highline Ballroom the night before, the images were projected behind them, and made for a much more aesthetically pleasing show.
When Washed Out took the stage, Greene was backed by an entire band, flashing lights, some smoke, and an overwhelming but appropriate amount of bass. His set up, set list, and even attire seemed exactly the same as the night before, but no less entertaining.
I had some concerns that his music would fall flat when being performed live, but I was very much mistaken. Greene's set showcased every different kind of song he's written from the funk-inspired, dance-provoking "Get Up", to the softer,"Before", and the classic, sensual, "Feel It All Around". Huge beats and echoing synths consumed Music Hall of Williamsburg. Aside from lights, there were no projections, tricks or gimmicks, just his music, which proved more than enough to keep the crowd captivated.
He left some of his most well-known songs for the end, like "Feel It All Around", and "Amor Fati" off his recent, highly regarded album, Within and Without. Greene said few words throughout the performance, rather, allowing his songs to speak for themselves.
Check out more pictures from the Brooklyn show, below...

Washed Out @ Highline Ballroom
Washed Out's tour with Memoryhouse hit Highline Ballroom last night (4/22) for their first of two sold out NYC shows on a very rainy night. Washed Out played a 12-song set with a good mix of material off 2011's Within and Without LP and 2010's Life of Leisure EP to a sometimes dancing and fist-pumping crowd. More pictures from the Highline show are below.
Meanwhile, Memoryhouse played despite having their gear stolen. The Highline show was the third NYC show for the band this past weekend, having also played an in-store for Record Store Day at Permanent Records on Saturday (4/21) and Public Assembly that night with Ex Cops and Matteah Baim. Check out a video from the Public Assembly show below.
Washed Out and Memoryhouse will do it again tonight (4/23) with a sold out show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. More pics, including one of WO's setlist, and videos below...
Memoryhouse (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Despite a recent, horrible gear theft (list below) which caused the cancellation of last night (Philadelphia) and tonight's (Boston) shows for Memoryhouse, the band are continuing on their tour with Washed Out and they've even added a third NYC show! In addition to their sold out shows with Washed Out at both Highline Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg, and their own show Saturday night at Public Assembly with Ex Cops, Memoryhouse will play a free afternoon in-store at Permanent Records in Williamsburg on Saturday too. P-recs says:
The big day is upon us. Record Store Day is this Saturday, April 21st.More Record Store Day events HERE. More Memoryhouse tour dates and their stolen gear list (with info on how to help them), below...
We are opening at 11am. We will have countless exclusive & limited edition releases to commemorate the occasion. We will have special giveaways throughout the day. We will have treats for our earliest customers. We will have live performances from Mattison at 1pm & 5pm. We also have Sub Pop's Memoryhouse coming in at 3pm for a special acoustic performance.
A few more notes to remember going into this special occasion:
-We have gone to great lengths to make sure we have stock on as many RSD exclusive titles as possible. However, due to the highly limited nature of some of these releases, quantities are often extremely limited. Many titles sell out instantly, so arrive early to avoid disappointment.
-*We are doing absolutely NO holds or special orders for any RSD exclusive titles.* They are sold on a first come, first served basis.
-We generally don't receive our RSD product until VERY shortly before the big day, so please don't call asking what we will have in stock. We are not holding out on you! We are trying to get as much as possible, but like you, we generally don't know specifics in advance.
It's gonna be a great day. Can't wait to see you all then.
