I was a bit surprised when I heard that Washed Out would be returning to the Granada Theater in 2014, as Ernest Greene and Co. performed at the historic Dallas venue less than a year ago. But trust me, I was not complaining as last year's show was a blast. Alongside Washed Out was Brooklyn's Small Black, who also performed in Dallas as recently as November as part of a Red Bull Sound Select show at the Prophet Bar. Together, the two bands provided a great one-two punch of danceable, chillwave goodness. I had missed Small Black the last few times they had come through Dallas and was very impressed with their live show. When Ernest and Co. took the Granada stage, they were without the tropical stage setup they had last November. This time, they employed a nice array of stage lighting that complimented the jovial mood of the evening. You cannot not enjoy a Washed Out show, sans the constant Portlandia references.
