Bristol trip hop legends Portishead are regrouping next month for a War Child benefit concert in support of relief efforts in Ukraine. The short set will be the trio's first show in seven years.

There are 1,200 tickets available for the show, which is happening in the band's Bristol hometown. Tickets will be raffled off in pairs, with everyone who snags a ticket gaining access to the livestream. By donating £10 (about $16 CAD) at this website before 7 p.m. ET on April 24, you get three entries in the raffle. 

However, single entry into the raffle is free for those who send a postcard to War Child Bristol, featuring the entrant's name, address and email address in black or blue ink. The address is listed below. 

In a statement, Portishead said: "We are really pleased to be able to support the people of Ukraine by performing a few songs at this event in collaboration with the amazing War Child charity."

IDLES, Billy Nomates, Katy J Pearson, Heavy Lungs and Wilderman are also playing the six-hour concert. Massive Attack's Robert del Naja created artwork and merch for the event, while the UK government is matching donations with funding for the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, according to the War Child press release.
