Flor at Portland’s Holocene – February 3, 2018.
Flor is back again, and welcomed home by an over-capacity Holocene in Portland, Oregon. In only the second stop of their first US headlining tour, the Hood River band packs the intimate Portland venue with family, friends, and loyal fans.
The excitement for the show, and love for the band, is obvious from the start. Many in line prior to doors shared stories of the group, discussing the rise and success the Oregon natives have had in the past couple years alone. Fans alike shared the same love for Flor, many making the trip from the Seattle show the night before, and continuing to follow them on more stops along the tour.
Flor’s setlist was their debut album rearranged, mixing in the songs off the deluxe version “ocean”, “rely”, and “no more time.” They even performed their version of Post Malone’s “i fall apart.” A recorded version can be found below. The lights helped provide a visual aspect to the show, but Flor’s music speaks for itself. The genuine band that you can find wandering around before and after shows meeting fans, is just as authentic on-stage. Within the last year they were the support act and toured with the likes of Hayley Kiyoko and Great Good Fine OK, and are now headlining many of the same venues on their own tour. Despite the success of the band, they’ve remained true to their identity and grateful to be on any stage. A sold out hometown show is special to any band, but shouldn’t take away seeing tour dates sell out across the nation. Flor is an incredible band doing great things with their music and performances, and is a band to keep an eye on as their fanbase and music grows even more.
