Anti-pop king Rex Orange County draws a sold-out crowd in Seattle (with Cuco)

Anti-pop king Rex Orange County gathered every Seattle hipster in the city for an incredibly packed, sold out show. Originally scheduled at The Market, demand to see the artist’s show was so high they upgraded to the Showbox SoDo.

Kicking off the night was Cuco, a 20-year-old Chicano artist. A handful of guys joined him on stage as he started off his set. His boisterous energy was well matched by the crowd. They didn’t miss a single beat or word the entire performance. It was clear that the audience loved Cuco.

Rex Orange County walked out on stage with hunched shoulders, a shy smile, and waved at the screaming crowd. All nerves instantly vanished once he played a note on the keyboard. The transformation was magical. Rex brought out long time girlfriend Thea, for a sweet rendition of Sycamore Girl. This was only the second time he brought out Thea to perform on this tour, so it was a treat to see.
