After a few sets of dance rock, Boston Calling swung into the indie-pop portion of Day 1. Portugal. The Man played a set on the side stage that left me feeling this band is going to be busting out once its new album "Evil Friends" is out in June. Just an energetic, engaging show all the way around, with a little Weezer tease tossed in for good measure.
Before the Shins held court on the main stage with its beautifully constructed melodies, Boston Mayor Tom Menino gave Boston Calling his blessings. Jeesh, dude's not even running and he shows up when more than 25 people gather in his city.
