Future Islands, Ed Schrader’s Music Beat @ Doug Fir Lounge, Portland 4/5/14

Future Islands got everyone’s attention this year through their triumphant Letterman performance and became the band to see at SXSW. But the fact is that the Baltimore band has been building a cult following through their live shows and albums for roughly half a decade. On their current tour for Album Of The Week pick Singles, they’re playing to bigger crowds and completely delivering. This weekend the band stopped by the Doug Fir Lounge in Portland with another Baltimore band, Ed Schrader’s Music Beat. We sent photographer Colin McLaughlin to capture the entire energetic night.
