I'm watching it(the Coachella AT & T Blue Room feed) right now and it's goosebump inducing. I'm predicting it'll be the defining performance(or at least one of them) of this year's festival.

i love portishead and all, and i know i'm a stupid hipster, but they cut off the AC feed right when they were getting to the first verse of "fireworks."

It was Animal Collective's fault for going on late

God, they are truly fucking amazing. Beth Gibbons still packs a punch and it's still as dark and dubby as before, but even more amplified. Welcome back, Portishead and thanks for PWNING Coachella.

Geoff has said a lot of things in the past that were later changed. Relax kid, they are touring here. You may have to wait till Jan-Feb but you will see them in NYC for sure and it will be a longer and im sure better show and in a smaller place than some huge festival. Calm Down and be patient.

Thanks for the lesson, Einstein. I know this. I was saying I would not take what Geoff was saying as set in stone. Things change especially in the Portishead world but even if it is true then you might have to wait till early in 2009 to see what will be a better show. You may have to wait an extra 1 or 2 months but it will be worth it.

I held hands with Beth. She got into the crowd. I was only one person away from the railing. This show rocked.

Anyone who would prefer Animal Collective to Portishead's first concert in the U.S. in a decade is a fucking idiot.
