PHOTOS / VIDEOS / REVIEW: WASHED OUT @ One Eyed Jacks – 10/18/11
As a huge fan of this year’s debut LP Within and Without (on my short list for album of the year), I was curious to see how the headphones-friendly, droning sounds of the record would translate on-stage. Instead of relying on the trusted formula that worked so well on record, frontman Ernest Greene has assembled an interesting and talented band to tour (led by the steady and intensely engaged bassist) with him and has completely re-worked the band’s sweeping musical arrangements (and soothing, intricately layered vocals) to give the fans that come out in support an entirely unique sound from that on the record.
Wesley grew up in coastal Georgia and is a former resident of The Music City and the Big Easy where he helped get Live Music Blog: NOLA off-the-ground, managing it in New Orleans through Jazz Fest 2012. Hodges now lives amongst THE CALIFORNIANS as a newcomer to West LA. His favorite artists include My Morning Jacket, Sigur Rós, Widespread Panic, The Allman Brothers Band, Dr. Dog, Tame Impala, Anders Osborne, Radiohead and Bobby & The Midnites.
Daft Punk is actually playing at his house tonight and you're invited.
