Portugal. The Man Played Port City [6.1.11]

After catching most of Neon Trees at the State, I ran down to Port City Music Hall for a show that’s been a long time coming to Portland: from Alaska (by way of the other Portland), Portugal. The Man are one of those bands that have a way of capturing fans’ attention in a way that’s hard to explain. Not everybody is familiar with them, but most of those who are could be called superfans – they’re in the front row and singing along to every word, and at this show it was clear that a good number of them can be found here in Portland, Maine. Unfortunately I missed the first band – Unknown Mortal Orchestra (though I heard from reliable sources that they were fantastic) but I did catch Telekinesis, who I was somewhat familiar with and really excited to see. It’s always impressive when a drummer can serve as a strong lead singer as well. Read on for a full photo gallery of these two acts.
