Meymandi "Rock"

Portastatic opened for the Magnetic Fields Saturday night at the symphony space over in Raleigh at Meymandi Concert Hall. that room sounds sweet, even with us playing, and the Magnetic Fields were funny and great, i hadn't seen them in years and their song selection was all over the place in a good way. midway through their set there was a complete power outtage in the building with only the "EXIT" signs remaining lit at the ironically (as someone pointed out in the audience during the show) named Progress Energy Performing Arts Center. all you could hear for a minute was Sam's cello, but then the lights and PA came back on and all was well.

we played this show as a duo with just myself and Ivan from the Rosebuds on keys and's the set:

You Know Where to Find Me
Drill Me
Your Own Cloud
Angels of Sleep
Sweetness & Light (feat. Sam and Claudia of the Fields on percussion)
Dancing in the Dark
San Andreas
Noisy Night
