Savages played Portland last night, and while the Wonder Ballroom wasn't packed to the gills, everyone there was intently focused on the UK band as the four women shot aural shrapnel out into the crowd. The music went from rumbling and confrontational to wraithlike and arty, often within the same song. Jason Quigley was there to take these photos, which capture the stark beauty and electrifying presence of the music. Lots more pics after the jump!
