Portugal. the Man is presently touring in support of its latest album, Evil Friends, released this month. Check out what Ryan Wasoba had to say about the band in this 2012 critic's pick:
Portugal. the Man gravitates toward dank psychedelic pop jams and its members have hair both long and unwashed enough to make Fleet Foxes look trim. Yet beneath this hippy exterior the band's story reads like a classic tale of punk-rock triumph. The obstacles were daunting, its members having hailed from the inconvenient state of Alaska and its name plagued with an unnecessary period, but the band honed its craft through constant album cycles and grew its fan base one show at a time alongside similar indie rock oddballs like RX Bandits, Minus the Bear and Maps & Atlases. Now Portugal, the Man tackles St. Louis's largest practical venue as a headliner.
