One of the coolest Portland bands played the New Noise Ball last Friday night alongside Vestigial Crow, which was part the first blog post.
It’s never a let down seeing these four guys shred. If you like Fall of Troy or other “Swancore” type bands, these guys are for you. BUT…with the theremin! Their drummer, Dan was actually in the first performing lineup of one of my old bands, Fighting Casper! He even came over to my place the day before to help me understand drum tuning better since the new Myna Bird drum kit we got has all new heads. and I only somewhat know what I’m doing.
After the night, there was a cover set in where Forrest, the bassist of Personal was a part of. He sang through “The Taste of Ink” and after, I was fortunate enough to play guitar beside him with both of singing “Cute Without The ‘e’” as well as Jay Beckstead (Drummer of Vestigial Crow) and Jeff Lane (Bassist for CROOKED).
They also just dropped a new music video for their song “Validation Sickness”, which you can find here.
Don’t forget to follow these guys on Facebook and Instagram (@PersonalPDX) to keep updated with what they’re doing.
