Portishead’s Roseland NYC live concert screening at IFI next week


After marking the 25th anniversary of Portishead’s Roseland NYC concert in New York with an album reissue, there’s more to come from the trip-hop stalwarts.

The Portishead concert was subsequently was made into a film and an album release, and the 1998 film PNYC: Portishead – Roseland New York is being shown in Dublin’s Irish Film Institute next week.

The film directed by Dick Carruthers runs at 93 minutes and the screening takes place Thursday, May 2nd at 6.30pm.

The concert featured the band performed with a 28-piece orchestra just before the release of the Bristol band’s second self-titled record in July 1997.

It is, for my money, one of the best music concert films of all-time (and live albums), and features performances of ‘All Mine’, ‘Cowboys’, ‘Sour Times’, ‘Roads’ and Glory Box’ and ‘Strangers’ among them.
