As Washed Out bobbed the crowd gaily and with sense, the unease could be satisfied by one means alone: Cut//Copy. Wrong me not, Washed Out was our climactic buildup to a dancing fervor; It’s that Cut//Copy was more.

1. Loch Lomond w/ Lost Lander & Lewi Longmire
Where: Mississippi Studios
How Much: $8/$10
When: Friday, October 7th – 8:30pm
Why: Symphonic chamber pop including instruments like: the vibraphone, mellotron, flute, clarinet, piano, guitar, bass, drums, etc. The co-ed sextet creates a sound that is full, warm, bright, and raw. Lead singer/multi-instrumentalist Ritchie Young has an amazing voice that could easily make you smile or cry.
2. Washed Out w/ Cut Copy & Midnight Magic
Where: Wonder Ballroom
How Much: $23/$25
When: Sunday, October 9th – 8pm
Why: If you missed Toro Y Moi last week at Branx (or even if you didn’t) you are definitely going to want to catch Washed Out with Australia’s finest indie electropop quartet, Cut Copy. A fellow chillwave luminary, Washed Out (aka Ernest Greene) creates hip-hop influenced synthpop that will leave you wanting more.
3. Chromeo w/ Mayer Hawthorne & the County
Where: Roseland Theater
How Much: $26
When: Tuesday, October 11th -9pm
Why: Currently in the middle of their latest tour, this electro-funky duo is known for their tightly crafted songs. Chromeo’s retro breakdowns and spicy synth beats will have your hips moving and grooving. Mayer Hawthorne joins the tour with his melodic mo-town revival. Fun, funky tunes. Fun, funky times. Don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes, Portland!
