Western Affairs is a three-piece dreampop group based in Washington DC. Originally founded by Alex Lee in 2009, the band has gone through an assortment of different members until finding a winning combination in 2011 consisting of additional members Davis Connors, and Andrew Monborne. Their eclectic sound comes from an array of influences from new experimental pop DC bands to bizarre avant-garde sounds. While staying true to their style, live performances turn into ambient experimental sessions, incorporating noise, orchestral key modulations, and oscillating drums you would only expect to hear in the soundtrack for Stanley Kubrick’s 2000: A Space Odyssey.
Western Affairs will also be playing their last show for awhile until they finish another release. For more information on this show, scroll down.
