Washed Out is the name of the band but it is the opposite of what this concert will bring to Philadelphia on Thursday, Sept. 19. at Union Transfer.
Ernest Greene (the man behind the music) debuted the first Washed Out recordings in 2009 but it wasn’t until 2011 that Washed Out’s “Feel It All Around” from that ’09 album was chosen as theme music for the television show Portlandia.
Scoring that gig put Washed Out on the map. Everyone who watches that show has wondered “What song is that and who does it?” The sound of that song might make people want to watch the show all on its own.
The music Greene creates, including the mentioned song, will make you want to move your head to the beat and sway your body to the synthesizing sounds.
Performing along with Washed Out is Haerts with their hit “Wings” to set the night off right.
The Union Transfer is located at 1024 Spring Garden Street in Philadelphia. Doors open at 8 p.m. show starts at 8:30 p.m.
Tickets are on sale and available through tickeyfly.com for $18. Event is for all ages.
