I looked around but couldn't see this posted elsewhere, even though it was posted yesterday on filter (http://filter-mag.com/index.php?id=16615&c=1):


Fans can catch Portishead live at their only scheduled US appearance on Saturday, April 26th at Coachella, but Filter has a treat for all Los Angeles area fans. The band will be hosting an exclusive rehearsal at a secret location in LA on Thursday, April 24th from 7-9pm. We’ve teamed up to give away FIVE pairs of tickets to this unforgettable evening. To enter, email fma@filtermmm.com with subject line “FILTER Portishead Contest.” Winners will be notified by Monday, April 24th so email today for your chance to win!

speaks for itself really.

WTF is up with everyone having a handful of tickets to give away? Metromix is giving away 10 pairs, buzznet is giving away 2. Everyone knows giveaways are mostly rigged. I'd die to go to this, even if meant missing trainchella and laserium. If I win, I guess my #2 would be required to take me to coachella and back.

Giveaways aren't rigged. I've won tons of times from local radio stations and magazines. It's all luck..

My parents entered me into a contest at Circle K back when I was 5 or 6. They were giving out life-size cut-outs of Hulk Hogan and Elvira. Being a huge Hulkamaniac, I had my heart set on winning the Hulk Hogan cut-out. And I actually WON...the Elvira cut-out. My life has been one disappointment after another ever since.

No, I didn't. My parents were pretty Puritanical and gave it to one of my uncles.
