I didn’t know what to expect from Portugal. The Man seeing as I hadn’t added them to my “bands to obsess over” playlist on Spotify yet, but dang, I was impressed.
The Portugalians opened with some 70′s Deep Purple/Blue Cheer type fuzz riff that I have not seen anyone pull off since Wolfmother gave it the ol’ riff rock try. I’m liking The Man’s take on it a bit more. All this fuzz, all these riffs, and songs too! Yeah it was pretty awesome. And again, hanging outside listening to live music with all the people you see at Albertsons, pretty cool. The name punctuation is confusing in blog form, but I’ll deal.
