Unofficial Backyard Memories, Installment #4: Family Portrait, “Waitberry”

Family Portrait- “Waitberry”- Live- Micro Pixel Rites BBQ- SXSW- Austin, TX- March 18, 2010 from Samantha Cornwell on Vimeo.

Good lord. Things have been so hectic over at the Visitation Rites North American HQ that I didn’t realize until glancing up at my calendar today that it has been almost a month since Family Portrait played the above rendition of “Waitberry” at the Micro-Pixel-Rites showcase in East Austin. The afterglow of that sun-bleached afternoon wore off long ago, but this video by Samantha Cornwell certainly brings back some of the most beautiful seconds of the day, around 4:30. Hint: you can see it in the astral light beams that caught the lens of her camera. And you can hear it in Evan Brody’s voice, in the lilting guitar line that forms the backbone of this song about waiting: for a brief moment, chilling there together in the sun, it felt like we would be young forever.

  1. […] Visitation Rites has another memory, Family Portrait doing “Waitberry.” As Emilie reflects, it’s hard to believe this was nearly a month ago. A lot, and nothing, has changed. […]
