The Coles are off to see the shimmeringly beautiful and rather marvellous Trip-Hop combo, Portishead, a week on Saturday. They are playing the Bristol Academy. Tickets went on sale at ten this morning and by five past, had all gone. I managed to bag a brace but, alas, failed to obtain a third permit of entry for the affable and loyal S. I apologise publicly but insist I did my best; punters were allowed only two tickets each and by the time I withdrew a second credit card from my wallet, the concert was sold out. Frankly, I can’t wait to see Portishead in such an intimate venue. Here’s a sweet clip of the band in action for all to enjoy.
