Austra performed Lose It and The Choke live in the lobby at Ace Hotel Portland last week. We were completely rapt with attention towards this bird lady in stacked platforms, as were passerby.

Caught on film by filmmaker Aubree Bernier-Clarke — a local treasure who makes music videos, short films and works with Portlandia. Thanks, Aubree.


Yestereve, Katie of Austra escorted us to an astral plane of hyper-pure timbre and masterfully orchestrated tremors at her live set in the lobby at Ace Hotel Portland. A lot of power packed into a person of efficient stature, her bare vocals with spare self-accompaniment had us transfixed. More from Austra soon — stay tuned.
