Washed Out Revealed as Headliner For Popscene's 17th Anniversary Party This Week

Categories: Show To Know

Popscene, the club night that started as a celebration of Britpop and became the country's longest-running indie weekly, turns 17 years old this Thursday. Chief organizer and Live 105 music director Aaron Axelsen had been keeping the name of this week's headliner under wraps -- until this weekend, that is. Fresh off of his set at Monterey's First City Festival, and with a new album, Paracosm, out this month on Sub Pop, it's now been revealed that Washed Out will play this week's Popscene.

In case you haven't been following Ernest Greene's music as Washed Out, here's a little taste of what he's been up to:

Washed Out plays the Rickshaw Stop, a smaller venue than you'd normally catch the act in, on Thursday with Popscene DJs. Tickets are still available.
