Portal are like a black hole. Where ordinary bands usually feed audiences with energy, these Australians suck them dry, mercilessly and jawdroppingly. They are without a doubt amongst the greatest of the contemporary boundary pushers. While we were busy shooting video and trying to wrap our heads around the sonic mayhem onstage, the inimitable Samantha Marble snapped gorgeous photos, which were published as part of brooklynvegan‘s coverage.
Tools: Sony HVR-Z5U, Sennheiser MKH418S – M/S Stereo Shotgun Microphone
