Supposedly my coworker emailed the Shrine and they got right back to him saying it was in fact in the Hall. Man, I cant imagine Portishead fans who are older wanting to stand in that hot sweaty room. This show should keep it classy and put in the Auditorium! Oh well.

Besides CoS where do you guys see the 19th show?

Edit: So ambigious on the website...


Following ATP, Portishead will play New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom for two nights, followed by shows in Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, Mexico, two nights at The Shrine in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver. The tour ends in Denver on October 27th.

If not, I'd like them to play right smack down in the middle of the Expo Hall, and have everyone sit down...like a Roseland situation...

Why is that? Do you also think the second weekend of Coachella will be better than the first? I think they will be pretty much exactly the same.




ATP will be better than both.

Wheres the beef?
07-22-2011, 12:35 PM
Because when a band is playing back to back nights, the first night its typically similar to the standard set that's played at other stops on the tour and the second night is where a band will switch it up from the first night. Therefore youre more likely to hear a rare or surprise song and at least a changed up setlist. I think there could be some better energy as the band will have rested in an actual hotel overnight instead of on a moving bus on the way to the next destination. This has been the case a few times already with acts like tool and massive attack when they have done multiple shows in la. I think its safe to assume portishead will be doing something similar.

And trying to compare this to two chella? Long answer yes with a but, short answer no with a maybe.

mmsk123
07-22-2011, 01:51 PM
Portishead rarely changes their setlists. I'm sure they won't be exactly the same, but it's not like they have a huge catalog of songs to go with. We'll know with the two NY dates before LA.

They also will have had 3 days rest from their previous concert so I doubt they will have been plane the day before (or day of).

Dualchella will be as good or as bad as you want. IF a person did the exact same schedule both weekends, then you can bring an objective opinion to the table. But WILL somebody do that? Thats the big question.

Which ATP? You mean the one this weekend, or in Sept?





buuuuuuuurn

Not sure what qualified as a burn here, I'm obviously talking about the ATP show I'm going to which is in my sig. And your Coachella questions don't relate to the situation I'm talking about at all. My point was if you could only do one Portishead show or one Coachella weekend would the second one be better in both scenarios.

Everyone in Portishead are ocd perfectionists who have a reputation of unchanging setlists. I would be shocked if we saw a difference of more than 1 or 2 songs.

Nylon Smile and Chase the Tear replaced with Hunter on Sat. They did try and do Chase the Tear on Sunday too, but had trouble with the drum loops. After about 6 false starts they gave up and moved on.

Chuck D came out and did a little verse during "machine gun" on Sunday night of ATP. Public Enemy just played before. Public Enemy was personally invited to the fest by Geoff Barrow. It was a pretty neat moment, actually. It only lasted like 4o seconds.

Glad that didn't happen at the Saturday ATP show, Wandering Star into Machine Gun was one of my favorite sections of the set and Chuck D would have ruined it for me. Can't wait for the LA shows! This weekend was just amazing.

Drinkey McDrinkerstein
10-05-2011, 10:28 AM
honestly, it was a short diversion that was pretty innocuous in the context of the whole set, but it does help to have prior knowledge of the fact that Chuck D is one of Geoff's idols and that was an extremely special moment for him, personally. Simeon from Silver Apples jamming out on a homemade synth during the same set was another one of those moments that must have just made the band giddy as hell.

I take enjoyment from the bands really having pleasurable moments of their own though, even if that moment happens to not work 100% musically for the performance (although in this case i admit I was pretty excited to see it happen).
