Earlier this summer, Blood Orange released a third studio album, Freetown Sound, and recently launched a world tour that included only a handful of US dates.

One of those dates included a stop at the Lincoln Theatre in DC on Tuesday, Sept. 13, where Blood Orange, born Dev Hynes, mesmerized the crowd with funky synthpop and orchestral R&B. Of the 21 songs he performed, only about half a dozen came from his previous work. This show was truly “Welcome to Freetown,” and it was a hit.

His encore included “Bad Girls,” the song he wrote for Solange Knowles in 2012, and “Uncle ACE” from his 2013 hit album Cupid Deluxe.

Dev’s tour continues Wednesday night in Toronto, and then he plays two more US dates before disappearing to Japan; he’s in Chicago on Sept. 23 and New York on Oct. 1. We recommend you see him if at all possible!
