"If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite."
The Portable-Infinite started in January 2005. It is the creation of one person: Alexander Laurence. It started in the ashes of all the other magazines and websites that I have been involved with the past 20 years. The purpose of The Portable-Infinite is collect all the interviews and essays I have written over the years. Plus there is always new material being added all the time. This is a blog that is focused on what is happening in Los Angeles right now in music and pop culture. It's all about now and the future.
It's really a scrapbook. There are a lot of new photos being added all the time. I am also very interested in the new art gallery scene that has taken off in Downtown LA. So hopefully after a while there will be a lot of interesting content on here each day. From May 2009 to present, I have been working with photographer, Angel Ceballos (robotangel.com). She is based in Seattle, but has shot a lot of bands in LA over the years. Her photography will be featured exclusively here from now on. I have also been interviewing more bands and writing more reviews. There are also other makeup people, graphic design people, collaborators, and others, at the fringes.
Alexander Laurence has also been a tour manager since 2009 for the following bands:
Alessi's Ark (Alessi Laurent-Marke) from 2010 to present. (UK band)
Magic Wands from 2009 to present. (Tennessee, LA band)
Gliss from 2011 to present. (Denmark, LA band)
Deer Tracks (2013 US Tour, including SXSW) (from Sweden)
F.O.X. (2013 US Tour) (from UK)
We have supported and played with the following bands: Sam Amidon, Paul Weller, Laura Marling, Patterson Hood, The Villagers, The Kills, The Horrors, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Warlocks, School of Seven Bells, Vacationer, Ava Luna, Jail Guitar Doors, Middle Class Rut, Moving Units, Mac Demarco, Blood Candy, Vinyl Williams, L.A.
