Here's a ripping photo of Deafheaven's George Clarke that Cat snapped during their skull-jarring opening set for Russian Circles and Helms Alee at the Doug Fir Lounge in Portland in November of 2011.
The photo has been circulating on Instagram and here's a few comments from fans who are no doubt at least partially deaf after experiencing the band's pummeling aural live assault:
• "They were mind blowing."
• "That was the show where I first heard Deafheaven, opened for Russian Circles. Have definitely never been the same since that show."
• "It's crazy that they are headlining the Fillmore. I remember them opening for Russian Circles just 3 years ago."
