My camera wasn't allowed in, i guess because its a "private rehearsal" or something, so instead of the horrible cellphone-cam pics i took, here's a nice pic provided by the band. And how did this guy get his nice camera in there? And why does he have "all rights reserved"?! UGH!

With the Mayan Theater about half-full and slowly being filled with puffs of pot smoke, Portishead took the stage last night for their super-secret-show, and welcomed the crowd by announcing that it was a rehearsal for Coachella, and that this whole event is just so they can test their instruments.

The crowd was immediately awestruck, as the band started off with two new songs from their album Third, even the security guards.
