One of the greatest shows I've ever seen!
When going to see Portugal. I was expecting a nice mellow evening like their albums sound. I was pleasantly surprised to see a full on rock show with amazing showmanship with surprising song choices. Everything about the band was solid, each person held their own and each member got better and better off of the next. I've seen hundreds of shows in my life including huge acts like Elton, The Stones, Paul McCartney, and more and this show was easily in the top 3 best I've ever seen.
PTM was amazing
Portugal. The Man absolutely rocked the house down.
Portugal. the Man was a letdown
Having seen Portugal the Man. before, this performance was disappointing. They did not seem to be engaged with their performance and seemed to rely on special effects, like the trippy and distorted videos playing behind them. They were so distracted that they played not one, but two of their songs twice. I would have preferred to hear more variety. In addition, the crowd was obnoxious and drunk. Despite all of this, however, Electric Guest, was a pleasant surprise. I was impressed with the energy and enthusiasm of their lead singer and really enjoyed their performance.
4 out of 5 acts were great!
Coulda done without Beth Ditto. She didnt really fit with the rest of the acts and I had a hard time listening to her to be honest, not great. Garbage Greek was stellar, definitely made me a fan. Elecrtic Guest was good too. Portugal was fantastic. Really fun show.
Extremely talented musicians and excellent visuals.
