Last night, Awesome New Republic and Washed Out played an all-ages show at Eve (formerly White Room) downtown. ANR brought the heat for the length of their ≈45-minute set, but for me the Miami dance-punk duo’s sound really came together about midway through with “Endless Field of Mercury” (#1 on our Top 15 SoFla Songs of 2010) and hit its peak with “The Get Out” near the end. The latter contains a killer catchy chord progression that I’ve heard before but will always want to hear again, including right now — but, alas, I can’t find the tune online. (Its sister song, “Don’t Fear the Get Out”, a track off of ANR’s twice-postponed upcoming release, is online.)

Washed Out is the project of Georgia-based multi-instrumentalist Ernest Greene. The music is chill, danceable, breezy — like a wave hooked up to electrodes. And I know that sounds awesome and perfect for Miami, but Washed Out’s set didn’t do much for me. As I mentioned in the previous post, I wasn’t familiar with Greene’s music before last night and I don’t usually fall in love on first listen sans spliff, so I may well come ’round. In fact, if I’d had the chutzpah to crash any one of the several campfires burning at White Room last night, I might still be dancing.

Here are some photos from the show.

    Foster, you mean the girl smoking or Ernest at the synth? Is it the antithesis of modest to ask which of our photos you consider award worthy? Genuinely curious nonetheless.
