BROOMFIELD, CO – Portishead ended their current US tour in Colorado, this was the bands first time playing Colorado. If you are not familiar with their music, it has a mix of dark sexy melodic sound, both lyrically haunting and moody in sound. Facebook was buzzing with people looking forward to the show in the days prior to the concert.
Portishead had a sizeable following in the mid to late 90’s and even had a song on The Crowe soundtrack. Singer Beth Gibbons voice has a trance like quality and distinctive sound. It was a real treat to get to see Portishead live. It is always great when you get to see a band live that you thought you missed out on. I would highly recommend seeing them in concert if you get a chance. Their music is something you want to quietly listen to in an intimate setting; it’s not a loud style rock show.
