ESA and Sigur Rós in Portland

We're just back from the annual meeting of the Ecological Society of America. The meeting was a great success. By happy coincidence, Iceland's finest band played at Edgefield during the week, so Wyatt, Zab and Jon jumped on the chance to see them live for the first time. Jon remembers listening to Sigur Rós non-stop while working on the proposal that funded our work at Hengill, so it's perhaps fitting that we were able to see them play as we hit the halfway point of the project. I couldn't upload my video, so here's someone else's footage of the climactic end of Popplagið (or Untitled #8), which the band played for their encore. If you're a fan (and we are), it doesn't get much better than this.
