The Bowery Presents: Phox w/ Field Report Tuesday February 10 Terminal West 8pm Doors // $12 ADV Tix: http://bit.ly/Phox-ATL Phox - http://www.phoxband.com/ PHOX is from Baraboo, WI, which is a place where kids often drink poisoned groundwater and become endowed mutants. The six best friends who make up the ensemble happen to be blessed with madness, illusions of grandeur, and the inability to do the same thing twice. They also play music. Field Report - http://www.fieldreportmusic.com/ 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.
