Chet Porter stopped by Portland’s Hawthorne Theater Lounge on this last Wednesday on November 29. Metsa and AOBeats were the opening acts.
First opener coming locally from northern Washington is “shy boy” Metsa, who performed live. I can definitely see him being in the next generation of electronic music and gaining a following quick. AOBeats I was able to meet personally and take some portraits of, super nice and humble off stage and kills it with some of the best rap remixes on stage.
Chet Porter’s set started at 10:30 with some technical difficulties. He attempted to perform three times before calling for Hawthorne Theater assistance to help figure out why the music wasn’t playing, during this time however he became a stand up comedian on the mic. A true performer. His stage set up was super simple, just him surrounded by his equipment in a super intimate setting. Sometimes those smaller shows are the best shows. He performed (live) some of his most famous tracks like Stay featuring Chelsea Cutler, tbh ily featuring Kidswaste and Awakening. Since the venue was technically inside of a bar it was only 21+ which gave the show a much more mature vibe.
