The trippy pop group Foxygen gave a thrilling, sometimes chaotic live performance at the Rock and Roll Hotel in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday night, channeling everyone from The Velvet Underground to The Rolling Stones and Ramones.

Foxygen (A-plus for the name alone) is the music of Jonathan Rado and Sam France, two friends from the Los Angeles area who share a love of avant-garde pop and classic rock. They started playing together and formed the band when they were just 15. Their full-length debut, produced by Richard Swift, is We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic.

This performance was recorded live on Feb. 27, 2013.
