I spent the last five days in Los Angeles having an amazing time, which included seeing Portishead live at The Shrine. It was a great venue that reminded me of The Aragon, but smaller and with better acoustics. I’m so glad I decided to go see them. They sounded great as a 6 piece, Beth’s voice hasn’t changed in all these years, and a clear highlights for me were “Glory Box” and “Wandering Star”, and well everything from the “Dummy” album. “Sour Times” sounded like it was played a bit faster than usual and with less instrumentation, yet still incredible to hear live. The live video mixing with the mutliple on-stage cameras was perfect as well. I could go on and on but yeah, check out this video from Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and see for yourself.
