Washed Out, the chillwave project of Ernest Greene from Georgia, is back in Denver. After gaining acclaim from his self-made EP Life of Leisure, rising to the spotlight after the release of his first full-length Within And Without on the Sub Pop record label, and making a stop in Denver late last year as an opener for what ended up being a phenomenal sold out show, Washed Out is back on tour to share his ethereal synth-pop with this city - this time in a headlining role. If Washed Out's last performance was any indication, there are already plenty of fans keen to this act's sound, so much so that Washed Out's relatively brief opening performance seemed very much like a tease. Now headlining the Bluebird, Washed Out should be able to fully satisfy listener's appetites. Check out "Eyes Be Closed".
Memoryhouse will join Washed Out on this tour as an opener. Memoryhouse is pop duo based out of Toronto. Evan Abeele and Denise Nouvion create a lofty pop sound with a dreamy and gentle lounge character to it. Interestingly enough, the project originated with the intent of the two not creating a band, but instead a full-on multimedia project that would feature both music and visual art as a way to merge together poetry and photography, but the quality of the two's music led them to the Sup Pop record label and allowed them to release their full-length album The Slideshow Effect. Check out "All Our Wonder".
The Bluebird Theater doors open tonight at 8:00PM and the show starts at 9:00PM. The show is 16+ and tickets are $25. Tickets and more information are available online here.
