Alaska-grown, Grammy-winning band Portugal. The Man is returning to Alaska to attend a rally in Anchorage that urges lawmakers to override Gov. Dunleavy’s $444 million in state budget vetoes.

Save our State's rally is Tuesday, July 9 at 5:30 p.m. at the Alaska Airlines Center. It’s free and open to the public.
