PHOTOS AND WORDS BY MARISA MATLUCK
Crystal Fighters opened up for Portugal. The Man at Revolution Live Wednesday night, bringing the crowd to their feet with their upbeat songs! They played fan favorites "Swallow," "Champion Sound," "You & I," "Follow," and "Plage" to name a few. Towards the end of their set, Portugal bassist Zachary Carothers came on stage to jam with them on the bongos.
Portugal's set lasted about two hours, and had everyone mesmerized by their music and the cool graphics projecting behind them. They played their own music as well as a few covers by Pink Floyd. The crowd cheered for an encore for about five minutes before the band came back onstage along with Crystal Fighters' Graham Dickson for another three songs. After the venue cleared, all that was left were a few groupies waiting along the stage for guitar picks.
The light show was amazing! -- Marisa Matluck
