Into the Woods has been Twitterblasting members of the media this morning with this video shot at the Occupy Portland eviction at SW Main and 4th on Sunday. Michael "Griff" Griffith, keyboardist for Archers, performs a song on solo acoustic guitar as chaos seems to erupt around him. There's crowd noise, police noise, yelling, chanting—all of which would make a filming/recording session a nightmare, except that in this case capturing them all, along with Griffith's music, is exactly the point. It's an audacious stunt which results in a nervy performance, and the result is a fascinating clip.
