Thoughts From Last Night...


Portugal The Man :: Al's Den :: 02.26.14

In case you were looking for yet another reason why Portland's a great town, let me paint a picture for you. One minute, you're at home, minding your own business - and an hour later you're watching Portugal The Man give a free show in a hotel basement. 
This is not a hypothetical. Last Wednesday night, I joined a handful of Portlanders in Al's Den at The Crystal Hotel, summoned by a last-minute announcement on Twitter. After acoustic sets from Snowbound Traveler's Matt Dorrien and Portugal's own Kyle O'Quin, most of the band gathered on-stage for a stripped-down mini-concert that featured songs like "Purple, Yellow, Red & Blue," "Evil Friends," and "Modern Jesus," and "Creep In a T-Shirt." 
Considering that PTM sells out major venues on the reg, the opportunity to see them in such an intimate setting (and FOR FREE), was just another great example of why Portugal has become one of Portland's favorite bands.
