Wild Moccasins Close Out Look Together Tour at Cheer Up Charlies

Cheer Up Charlies blossomed Saturday night with a radiant explosion of colorful pastel pop and euphoric dream-wave ambiance as the “ambiguous everybody space” played host to the Wild Moccasins’ tour finale. The indie-pop quartet kicked off their month-long national tour in Houston on July 7th at White Oaks Music Hall with the release of their latest album, Look Together. The 12-track LP is the band’s first album in four years and comes after the dissolution of a decade-long romantic relationship between bandmembers Zahira Gutierrez and Cody Swann. Themes of love, loss and vulnerability are elaborated through a vibrant blend of nostalgic, 80’s synth-pop and dreamy, new-wave disco grooves that captivate the conscience, awaken the senses and ignite the dancefloor. CUC provided a splendid evening of intoxicating pop Saturday with Austin’s blissed-out, shoegaze quartet of spouses, Blushing, and psych-tinged pop-rockers SMiiLe warming the crowds’ appetite prior to the Moccasins’ headlining set. Check out a few highlights from the evening below captured by Mark Bowers.
