words + photos by Joe Cortez

DC-based pop trio SHAED (pronounced, "shade") stopped by Santa Ana's Constellation Room on Thursday, September 22. After dropping their debut single "Just Wanna See" this past summer to massive acclaim and serious buzz, the band, comprised of twins Max and Spencer Ernst and vocalist Chelsea Lee, hit the the road starting last month with Marian Hill and VERITE as part of a tour of the US dates through the middle of October.

Highlighted by Lee's soulful vocals and seriously sexy lyrics, SHAED wowed the OC audience with a fun and playful set that featured brand new tracks as well as the SoundCloud favorite, "Thunder." The brief set teased the promise of a bright future for SHAED and left everyone wanting for more. Check out my photos from the night, also featuring VERITE and Marian Hill, below. For more on SHAED including upcoming tour dates, be sure to visit and follow @shaedband on Twitter.
