Beer and Pavement

Port O’Brien

Posted in Live by SM on March 25, 2010

I saw Port O’Brien tonight open for Portugal, the Man. I didn’t stay for the headliner as I have a plane to catch in the morning and Port O’Brien filled my needs. The bass player selling t-shirts was a nice enough fellow. Their set was everything I wanted it to be: raw, emotional, authentic, rockin’. I feel bad that much of the crowd of high school kids did not get it. Here’s a pic. It’s no Carrie Wade, but it’s something1.

When I get back from my trip, I plan to tell you how Pavement has single-handedly taken down the Boomers and this Port O’Brien show was great. I may even have something to say about the beer. Stay tuned.

    Whilst you traveling? I’m on the country as well this week. Perhaps our paths will cross at O’Hare. Or I dunno.

    The pic is lovely, by the way. Also, word is Portugal, the Man is from Wasilla, AK.

    good depiction of what its like to be at a show, not what its like to see the band, which is often hard to see unless you push your way up to the front and fight some assholes.
