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.

The Elevator Music Series is presented in part by 88.1 KDHX, Urban Chestnut Brewing Company, The Royale, and Local Harvest.
