We’ve teamed up with Banana Stand Media this spring to premiere a series of videos recorded in and around Portland featuring Oregon-based musicians. Like opbmusic, Banana Stand is celebrating their 10th anniversary this year. In that decade, they’ve recorded and released nearly a hundred live concert albums from (mostly) local musicians and expanded rapidly into the realm of video production in recent years. Now, the DIY production company is one of the most prolific documentarians of Portland’s robust music scene.
The first video in this series features a blistering performance from instrumental psych rock band Máscaras, which features Papi Fimbres on drums, Carlos Segovia on guitar and Theo Craig playing bass.
Máscaras have a gig coming up at The Fixin’ To in Portland on April 20.
“Crimson & Chrome” and “Animal Prince” were recorded before a live audience April 30th, 2016 at Banana Stand in Portland, Oregon. The video features footage from camera operators Michael McInerney, Darren Hartman, Tyler Bertram, Nick Gattman, Sam Smith and Guy Wagner, and was directed and edited by Michael McInerney. Audio for this video was recorded by Adam Harney and Zach Stamler, mixed by Adam Harney, and mastered by Chris Andersen. Cover art for the Máscaras Live From The Banana Stand live album was designed by Dane Brist and featured photography from Michael Reiersgaard.
