Portugal. The Man, Outside Lands 2012

16th August 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:

Holy hell, Allen Stone is a charmer. He learned to perform in church as a kid, and it shows.

The guy can certainly sing, but I have to admit I didn’t get his music until I saw him live. He is lit from within, and so comfortable in his own skin.

Here’s the performance and interview I saw if you want to have a look. And here’s a good “print” interview with him if you’d like to read up.

PAPA, at Outside Lands 2012

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

Side venues at festivals are my favorite places to find new music. It’s so nice to see bands up close before a sea of bobbing heads intervenes a few years down the road.

PAPA is a band out of L.A. who describe themselves as American soul music. In addition to being easy on the eyes, they’re smart, so it’s safe to develop a thinking woman’s crush.

These photos are from their performance in AT&T’s All Access tent, and you can see the whole performance, plus a brief interview on U-Verse.
