Portugal. The Man 07.17.13

July 18, 2013

Portugal. The Man sold out Showbox at the Market last night and absolutely tore the stage up.  Singer John Gourley told me earlier in the day that they had an elaborate stage setup and had to hold a few things back based on the size of the stage.  I couldn't believe that they didn' t have it all out there...that stage was jam packed!  Their powerful performance backed with a dramatic light show made for a night to remember. 

Earlier in the day the band chatted it up with a few End listeners during an Alternaventure at the Caffe Vita loft on Capitol Hil l.  It turned out that keyboardist Kyle O'Quin was quite the barista back in the day.  He proved it by demonstrating and teaching his mad-espresso art skills to the group. 

Here are a few photos from the day....
