Post Mortem

A photographic account of heavy music in Portland, Maine

PHOTOS: Five of the Eyes, Murcielago, Never Got Caught, Superorder, and Video Nasties

Plantmind (Kyle Scofield), plays what could be his final performance with Superorder. The bassist is moving to, um, greener pastures in Northern California and will be gone at least 10 months, if not longer. In the meantime, Trycho (Tony Babb) — the original bassist for Capture the Sun — will be filling in. (Photo by Ben McCanna)

Editor’s note: We apologize for submitting this postmortem one week late. Last Sunday, we suffered a death in the family and our minds have been elsewhere — puzzling through this weird and fleeting existence. As a result, our coverage may be sporadic over the next few weeks or months while we try to tease some sense out of all this. Thank you for your patience and support.

It was an embarrassment of riches.

Saturday, Feb. 28, offered so many conflicting avenues for entertainment, we felt pulled in all directions. At Port City Music Hall, stoner rock standard-bearers Murcielago headlined a show with locals Five of the Eyes and Bostonians Never Got Caught. At Bayside Bowl, Superorder bid adieu to bassist Plantmind (Kyle Scofield), who is off to California to mind some plants. (The band will continue with a replacement and have planned a busy year.) Then, at Geno’s, psychedelic rockers Video Nasties put on their usual spectacle.

We had a paying gig that night, so we begged the assistance of two guest photographers, Matthew Robbins and Bob Ulrich.

Robbins, a consummate professional who also serves as guitarist for Murcielago, photographed FotE and Never Got Caught before taking the stage for the headlining set. That’s when Ulrich, who is something of a renaissance man, took over to shoot Murcielago. (Ulrich was in the unfortunate position of shooting with the Post Mortem loaner — a laughable, late-model Canon Rebel with a toy-like, semi-busted 50mm lens. Shooting a concert with that camera is like chopping down a forest with a herring.) Then, when we wrapped up our job obligations, we hustled down to Bayside Bowl for Superorder, then Geno’s for VN.

Here’s our combined dispatch from that crazy night, presented in random order.

If you borrow these images for Facebook or whatnot, please credit us. (Watermarking sucks and we don’t wanna do it.) Also, don’t crop or alter. Yes, we’re monsters.
