Portugal. The Man, Outside Lands 2012

AT&T sponsored my coverage of Outside Lands this year, so I got to take photos of a few of their All Access tent performances.

During this interview with John Gourley of Portugal. The Man, Isabel texted that Gourley was a talented artist who did the artwork for their album covers.

That explains his impeccable shoes, which I took with me when I left. I am wearing them now.

Gourley’s a reserved guy who says being on stage has helped him overcome some intense shyness. The whole band grew up in Alaska, and Gourley said he was an adult before he realized that people slept in past 8 a.m.

The music is smart-people rock with solid lyrics, which is always my thing. I like People Say, but you’ll find everything here:
