Hailing from Wasilla, Alaska and based in Portland, Oregon, Portugal. The Man (punctuated as intended) will be making their way to Austin, Texas during the SXSW festival. The visionary artists will be bringing their conceptual yet approachable tunes to the IFC Crossroads House March 16 at 4 p.m. You should probably RSVP now. Go ahead, we’ll wait. Done? Great. Once you pick up your wristband you can come on by the house at E. 7th and Brazos and watch interviews with Rainn Wilson or Simon Pegg, enjoy our all day Happy Hour, and listen to the pop savvy prog rockers known as Portugal. The Man. To see the full schedule of events at the IFC House click here and follow us on Twitter (@IFCtv) for all the updates. Can’t make it to Austin this year because of that bounty on your head from last year? We understand and we are live-streaming all the bands and interviews right here on IFC.com.
Don’t know Portugal. The Man? Watch and learn with their song “Dead Dog”:
And here’s their video for “People Say” off their 2009 album “The Satanic Satanist” (Equal Vision):
