Washed Out at The Orange Peel on Monday

Washed Out is the stage name of Atlanta-based songwriter/producer Ernest Greene. This is from his Sub Pop bio: “Long adored and critically lauded in the blog world, Greene first came to prominence in the summer of 2009 after unassumingly posting a handful of bedroom-recorded tracks to his Myspace page from his family home in the seclusion of the tiny rural city of Perry, Georgia.”

That success didn’t cramp Greene’s style. He went on to release Life of Leisure and now Within and Without (which dropped this past July).

Washed Out opens for Australian electro-rock group Cut Copy at The Orange Peel on Monday, Sept. 26 (Midnight Magic also performs). 9 p.m., $30 advance or $32 doors.

Watch the stunning new video for Washed Out’s song “Amor Fati” (but be warned, it will make you want to take a road trip):
