Port O’Brien

After almost two years of filming bands it now starts to happen that we randomly run into someone we already know from a previous shoot (remember Wavves-Ryan surprisingly popping out from the Vivian Girls tourbus and commenting during the videos …). This time it is Two Gallants’ drummer Tyson Vogel’s turn. He joined Port O’Brien for their short European summer tour and furthermore helps out with audio recording during our video shoot by creatively installing one of the mics on a branch. It is a nice late-August day when we meet Port O’Brien in Berlin. They are set to play an acoustic show as one of the last bands performing on the Circus Stage of now-closed Bar 25. Darkness has already fallen in when everyone’s ready, and all the light that remains at the venue comes from some psychedelically coloured electric bulbs with the best-lit spot being surrounded by some bushes in front of a fence. So, “cramming into the bush” is the slogan for the next ten minutes, when the California-based band plays inspired and beautiful versions of “Sour Milk / Salt Water” and “Oslo Campfire” from their new record “Threadbare”.
