This morning, Portugal. The Man released its first full-length album, In the Mountain in the Cloud. With live performances left and right (including a Bonnaroo performance on the back of a Mr. T Mardi Gras float), the indie rock group might be one of the busiest bands this summer. After playing in Chicago for Lollapalooza and a sold-out solo set, the band is touring the United States and will end in New Orleans in time for this year's Voodoo Experience.
Tomorrow, their October 27 show at Charlotte's Neighborhood Theatre goes up for pre-sale on their website. Buying ahead gets an early admission and a piece of art from frontman John Gourley. Friday opens up the sale to general admission.
Check out a streamed performance from the band tonight at 7:30 through Ustream.
For the first time in years, I feel confident that there will be new music…
