Portugal. the Man
The perfect site for a free indie-rock concert (and its attendant Twittering audience stereotypes), Governors Island is that 70-hectare sandbar where everybody bicycles in the Upper New York Bay and you can only reach via ferry from Manhattan and Brooklyn. Perfect, right? Well, tonight is the first in a series of concerts on the beach facing Manhattan (sorry, Brooklyn), and the inaugural band is Portugal. the Man, a Portland, Oregonvia-Alaska electronics-heavy psychedelic indie-rock group. Be sure to read the FAQ on the Beach Concerts website, "I have a blog. Do I count as press?" before boarding the boat. With Alberta Cross.
