Portugal. The Man counts Kanye West among its fans.

Portugal. The Man counts Kanye West among its fans.

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' largest practical venue as a headliner. God bless America!

Unlikely Cred: Kanye West blogged about his fandom of the band, and Wu Tang Clan's RZA remixed the band's track "All Your Light (Times Like These).
