Yeasayer, Washed Out, Oh My!

When I first moved to Savannah, Georgia, I figured the music scene was going to be incredible with the hoards of young music listeners at every corner and coffee shop. But, alas, I was wrong, until a couple of days ago when Washed Out and Yeasayer pretty much negated the belief that Savannah couldn’t cultivate a music scene. Washed Out was up first and Ernest Greene delivered. Hailing from both South Carolina and Georgia, these southern fellas were extremely grateful and their synth-pop, sort of fuzzy-vinyl sounds were a great way to warm the crowd up. It happened to be Greene’s birthday and the front two rows of the crowd belted out an enthusiastic “Happy Birthday,” while he took a video on his iPhone.

Although Washed Out exceeded my expectations and confirmed me (and the crowd) as a fan, Yeasayer is what we were anxiously waiting for. The lights went off and three pillars on stage were lit red, an obvious choice for their first song “Madder Red.”  Anand Wilder woo-ed us all with his pajama pants while Chris Keating kept the crowd moving. “Tightrope” and “Grizelda” were especially beautiful. Every song was woven together perfectly like a well-written novel until both the climax and dénouement: “O.N.E.” and “Ambling Alp”.
