Neon Indian – 6.19.2010 @ Westword Music Showcase

(Photo by Julio Enriquez of Cause=Time.)

Yet another welcome surprise for me at this year’s Westword Music Showcase was Neon Indian.  Like the Dirty Projectors set,  I was afraid this one would lose some of it’s steam in a mid-afternoon outdoor setting.  While there’s no question their music would go over better indoors, the band’s prismatic layering of sound drew a large and responsive crowd.  The trick was getting up close and submerging yourself in the sound.
