Though they've built a steadfast reputation for raising the collective pulse of enthralled audiences wherever they play, Port O'Brien
recently scaled back their no holds bar sing-a-longs for an exclusive acoustic performance in the Guest Apartment. In truth, it's been something we've been trying to arrange ever since we first heard last year's stunning, break through release, All We Could Do Was Sing
. In town for a set of shows in support of their recently released Threadbare
album, we jumped at the opportunity to finally work with the band. What follows is the crowning achievement.
Playing three songs from Threadbare
, Cambria Goodwin
, Van Pierszalowski
, and Ryan Stively
perform magically in the acoustic alignment, exhibiting the band's incredible knack for nurturing magnitudes of emotion in every song they play. Though no electricity was needed, one member did fancy a nap in the middle of the session (they've been busy, after all), recruiting our favorite resident mascot for a bit of much needed R&R. Poor Jupiter may never be the same (See "Love Me Through"). - David Pitz
