Alongside the shine of their myriad of musical accomplishments lies the group’s long-standing passion for social justice. In fact, this is precisely the intersection in which Portugal. The Man thrives; throughout their career, the band has consistently exemplified how to deeply commit to both artistry and activism. This ultimately inspired them to officially launch PTM Foundation in 2020, focused on universal issues related to human rights, community health, and the environment, with an emphasis on causes directly impacting Indigenous Peoples, including Alaska Native Health (providing the highest quality of health services for Alaska Native people) and Seeding Sovereignty (radicalizing and disrupting colonized spaces through land, body, food sovereignty work and more).

THE FUR COATS
The Fur Coats are a psychedelic pop/soul sextet based in Portland, Oregon. Co-fronted by married couple Chris Karl Hoganson and Betty Downey (who together also form the concept-pop duo ROOM), their all-star lineup includes current and former members of Reptaliens, Charlie Hilton, The Gossip, Shoplifting, and a litany of other Portland rock & roll barnstormers. Theirs is an extremely tight-knit collective — at their inception, most of them lived together in a haunted mansion in North Portland's Portsmouth neighborhood (several still keep an address there, and they continue to use its basement as band headquarters) — and that intense closeness is clear in both their writing and performance.
An explosion of color and sound onstage, The Fur Coats have built a large and devoted following at home and abroad since their inception early in the 2010s. They've made a regular practice in recent years of quick tears up and down the west coast, and have embarked on multiple European tours since the spring of 2017.
