VANCOUVER – Washed Out could not have really fucked this show up if they tried. Vancouverites love the sun and given people were probably out in it all day, everyone was in a jolly mood, and a chill-wave set by one of the best bands in the genre was a perfect end to the sunny warm Sunday.

The Imperial’s huge projection screen was illuminated by colorful trippy visuals, some of which were pulled from the bands visual record released last year Mister Mellow, which they drew heavily from for the set. There was tracks from the previous two records too, most received a bit of a boost live in keeping people moving. The lushful “Don’t Give Up” and “Don’t Say Goodbye” seemed a few beats faster than their recorded versions, as did a few other slower tracks.

The band looked great contrasted against the screen with them all in white, and when they said their goodbyes, everyone had been having such a good time, that it was almost forgotten that they should come back out and finish with “Eyes Be Closed” from their debut Within And Without. Which of course they did, and a happy crowd went home even happier.
