Portugal. The Man, The Builders & The Butchers and Morning Teleportation


Roseland (map) Northwest
Sat., June 26, 9 p.m. 2010 All Ages


The first time I saw Portugal. The Man was during an early set at the Tonic Lounge, back when the band still couldn't escape the shadow of their former outfit, Anatomy of a Ghost. Their dynamic stage presence was most definitely there, even if it took a few more years until their songs caught up with the band's ability to awe crowds under the spotlight. Their early days were both inspiring and arduous, as the band struggled to hone their talent for writing sprawling rock numbers while not cutting ties with their DIY pedigree. In the years that followed, PTM have gained a fervent global following, a reputation as a big stage festival act, inked a major label deal, and now—finally—won popularity in their partial hometown (we share joint custody with Wasilla, Alaska). When PTM takes the stage tonight, it'll be their reward for six consecutive years of nonstop touring, recording, and a level of devoted dedication matched by few bands in Portland or beyond. They deserve this. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
