“Feel It Still” Artist Portugal. The Man Claims Faribault, MN, The “Coldest”
In a recent interview with the Reading Eagle, the Indie-Rock band Portugal. The Man dive into the wild success of their hit song "Feel It Still", and other music minded things. But the real thing that stood out to me was that the Alaskan natives mentioned Faribault, MN and Shattuck-St. Mary's specifically at the end of the piece.
At the end the band talks about their recent trip to the Twin Cities, and band co-founder Zach Carothers had this to say:
"It's the only place we regularly play where it's often warmer in Alaska than it is there," said Carothers, who remembered coming to Minnesota in his youth to see a cousin play hockey for Shattuck-St. Mary's high school in Faribault: "I think that's the coldest I'd ever been up to that point."
WHOA! Shot's fired! Last time I checked it's going to be pretty mice this weekend.
It wasn't all complaints about our weather though, Carothers went on to say that Minnesota is "where people have been supporting us a long time."
