9-17: Washed Out at Plush
On September 17th, The Luminary presents acclaimed producer and songwriter Washed Out for a special off-site show at Plush. Long adored and critically lauded in the blog world, Ernest Greene (aka Washed Out) first came to prominence in the summer of 2009 after unassumingly posting a handful of bedroom-recorded tracks to his Myspace page from his family home in the seclusion of the tiny rural city of Perry, Georgia. Along the way Washed Out inspired a legion of devoted supporters, followers and imitators before seemingly wilfully slipping back into obscurity again-just as the project was beginning to leave the internet ghetto behind in favor of bonafide real world success. Released on July 11th/12th (through Weird World in the UK/EU and Sub Pop in North America, respectively), debut full-length Within and Without is a summer record to span the seasons; a collection of songs as comfortable sound-tracking moments of peaceful relaxation as they are lighting up a party, and a strikingly mature next step from a uniquely focused, sincere artist. Local electronic duo CaveofswordS will open the show.
Doors open at 8pm. Show at 9pm.
Tickets are $15adv/$17dos and are available online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/267952.
The Elevator Music Series is presented in part by 88.1 KDHX, Urban Chestnut Brewing Company, The Royale, and Local Harvest.
