Field Report
Field Report is the creation of Chris Porterfield, whose debut record
is a collection of songs six years in the making. Chris cut his
musical teeth with DeYarmond Edison (the other members of which were
Justin Vernon and Megafaun). After their breakup in 2006, Bon Iver
and Megafaun went on to success while Chris hung back in Wisconsin,
thinking his career in music was probably over. It was really just
beginning. For the first time in his life, he began writing his own
songs, which he spent the following six years carefully perfecting. In
December 2011, the record was finally committed to tape at Vernon's
studio.

The result is a haunting set of songs both crafty and poignant. After
sending a few unfinished tracks to select people, the response was
immediate and impactful: producer Paul Kolderie (Radiohead, Warren
Zevon, The Pixies, Uncle Tupelo) fell in love with them and offered to
mix the record, which he did in February 2012. The songs were also met
with acclaim from many SXSW presenters, resulting in invitations to
play at ten shows, including Brooklyn Vegan, Daytrotter, Adam Duritz's
showcase, and Pandora.
Plume Giant - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Plume Giant
PLUME GIANT moves and sings like a family band, but under the surface of tightly woven chamber folk is something altogether different: a charming and strange collaboration between classical converts and erudite folk-rockers, balladeers and experimentalists. They manage to sound bigger than a three-piece, juggling and trading a dozen instruments amid the co-ed harmonies.
