Portugal. The Man at Ogden Theatre, 5/2/12


Portugal. The Man really, really likes Denver -- at least as much as the Portland-by-way-of-Alaska act appreciates band names with unwarranted punctuation and song titles with extra parentheses, it seems. "I know a lot of bands come out and say that every night, but we really love it here," bassist Zach Carothers insisted. "We have more friends in Denver than anywhere else in the world -- except maybe home." And by the way, "Is the naked hippie here? That shit was crazy."

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
