Washed Out Live in Concert Featuring The Mister Mellow Project Tour

June 22, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm

Washed Out Mister Mellow Tour Poster

Georgia’s Ernest Greene, aka Washed Out, brings his Mister Mellow Project Tour to Windsor for a live concert at the Olde Walkerville Theatre on Friday, June 22, 2018.

Mister Mellow is the third studio album by American singer Washed Out. It was released on June 30, 2017, and is his first project with Stones Throw Records. The CD release is accompanied by a visual album on DVD.

Mister Mellow moves further away from the synthesizer-heavy sounds of the recent Washed Out releases and more band-driven sound of his work on iconic labels Sub Pop in America, and Domino in Europe. On Mister Mellow, Greene draws from the experimental collage techniques of musique concrete and plunderphonics artists such as The Residents. Combining styles as diverse as free jazz, house, hip-hop and psych together with interlude-esque voiceover samples, often pulled from anonymous YouTube vlogs, he creates a busy, chaotic, and caricaturish mix that mirrors the claustrophobic, hyper-stimulated psyche so familiar to young adults.

Greene’s also known for creating the theme song for Portlandia, a sketch comedy television series set and filmed in and around Portland, Oregon, starring Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein.

Tickets are $30 in advance or $35 at the door.

Tickets can be purchased at Dr. Disc Records, Phog Lounge, The Windsor Beer Exchange and the Olde Walkerville Theatre.
