I've actually been to the First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia quite a few times, and it always seemed odd to be soiling such a sacred building with the Devil's music. Plus, it felt so wrong to smuggle in a bottle of beer via my waistband. Although, to be fair, beer just tastes better in church.
Thankfully Portland Cello Project know nothing of such sin, and this concert clip—taken from a show last November—is about as wholesome as you can possible get. That is until Justin Power chomps off a bat's head as an encore. Who saw that coming?
