Porterfield lives up to the hype in Meyer Theatre show

Chris Porterfield and his Milwaukee-based band Field Report have picked up acclaim from Rolling Stone, NPR and even Time magazine. Those raves were completely justified on Jan. 16 at the Meyer Theatre.

After a solid opening from locals The Midwestern Charm, Porterfield & Co. delivered a gripping set of Field Report songs and one borrowed tune - Neil Young's "Borrowed Tune,'' that is - to a highly attentive audience that nearly filled the lower level of the theater. As the set, highlighted with standouts "Fergus Falls" and "Taking Alcatraz," came to a close, it was met with a standing ovation and much appreciation from the performers.

Porterfield told the crowd that he couldn't wait to be back - the Near Water Concert Series performance was his first Green Bay-area show - and the feelings were mutual.

It's also safe to assume that for his next time around, the narrative surrounding Porterfield will be a bit different for the leader of a rising band primed for a big 2013.
