feel it all around

I was giddy with school girl excitement when I found out that Washed Out was going to be playing Philly for the first time and no way in H-E double hockey sticks was I going to miss it.  I have been addicted to the "chillwave" groove that is W.O.'s trademark since I first laid ears on it.  And to add to the sweetness of the  show, Washed Out, who is usually a one man band via Ernest Greene, was backed up for part of the set by Small Black.  Pictureplane rounded out the wicked evening.  And of course behind every good man is a good woman, which is of course Blair Greene, Ernest's fairly new and adorable wife who was hard at work manning the merch table,  immediately recognizable from the Life of Leisure cover. Washed Out played a stellar set made all the better by covering Belong, my fave. Somehow I can imagine laying on a beach on the Italian Riviera circa 1986 whenever I hear that song.  Counting down the days until Washed Out returns in May with Beach House!  And many thanks to Sean Agnew at R5 productions for hooking me up with tickets.
