Despite the bummer altercation at Fiona Apple and Blake Mills's Portland tour stop, the actual performance sounds like it was the kind of stunner we've come to expect from these two.

Fiona Apple & Blake Mills @ Newmark Theatre, Portland 10/3/13

The balance of the evening was already a delicate one. The restraint of the audience at the Newmark Theater as they watched the manic glee of Fiona Apple in performance mode was palpable.
