Probably best known for securing the intro music for the beloved show making fun of hipsterdom Portlandia
, Washed Out has weirdly become iconic for this generation of millennials.
music editor Matt Stieb explained this idea really well a few years back Washed Out headlined Maverick Music Festival:
“Oddly enough, Washed Out has not only eclipsed the genre of chillwave, it's become a touchstone act for the millennial generation in the way that Steely Dan is a zeitgeist artist for dads of millennials. And much like Steely Dan, Washed Out totally rules, though with serious potential to sound dated in twenty years. With Phil Collins-meets-hip-hop drum fills and synth textures like rolling surf, Ernest Greene's Washed Out took Maverick on a weed-smoke journey through chillwave and beyond.”
Washed Out returns to San Antonio on Thursday, December 27 for a performance at Paper Tiger, and you’ll most likely see us there ready to party.
$25, 7pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., papertigersatx.com
