Portugal. The Man

Portugal. The Man

Review and photographs by Jessica Ayotte

This year at PearlPalooza in downtown Albany nine bands performed on two stages – alternating continuously throughout the day. Sponsored and hosted by 102.7 WEQX-FM, people were able to watch bands from all over the world perform on the main stage – Gentlemen Hall, Cayucas, Said the Whale and Crystal Fighters. Headlining PearlPalooza was Portugal. The Man.

And the local stage at the other end of the street played host to four popular Local 518 bands – Eastbound Jesus, Wild Adriatic, Stellar Young and Titanics.

With the best weather that a late-September day could give, the first band I had the pleasure of seeing was Santa Monica band Cayucas. With their music ranging from indie pop to surf pop, the three-piece band played a lively and relaxing set Saturday afternoon, including “Deep Sea” and their radio single “High School Lover,” from their recently released debut album, Bigfoot. If I had to compare their sound to any other band, I would say they sound very much like Vampire Weekend. People in the crowd soon made this connection, too, and every person I talked to really enjoyed their performance.
