John McCauley of Deer Tick and Nick Kinsey of Diamond Doves as Porter & Dolly
Going into the night we knew this show was going to be big. Deer Tick had to cancel their appearance at SPACE last time around, so there were a lot of fans anxious (a sold out crowd of 300 to be exact) to see the band back in Portland. The last minute addition of Diamond Doves (otherwise known as half of Elvis Perkins in Dearland's band) filled out an already big bill which included locals Tiger Saw opening.
Before the show, tour openers Those Darlins did an interview with local writer Katie Fuller, which can be found on the blog Pop Tarts Suck Toasted here (along with some of my photos from the night). Check out the sweet bling Jessi Darlin got out of our Art-o-Mat!
It was a fun, perfectly sloppy in all the right ways-kinda night. Check out photos of the whole show from Jon Donnell :
