we saw: Radiohead

"I'm not here, this isn't happening..."
There is pretty much only one band that I would drive 7 hours and spend $200 to see... Neutral Milk Hotel. But until THAT happens, I'll make due with Radiohead. They rocked the shit out of Hotlanta last Thursday night, with a Kid A/In Rainbows heavy set that made it all worth while. But be forewarned: for those of you who plan on catching them later on this tour, they start early... like nine o'clock early. With tickets saying doors opened at 8, we arrived at 9:15, fully expecting to catch the last half of Liars' opening set before the paranoid brits did their thing. We were wrong, and now I may never see "There There" live. Still, with two (!) encores, it's clear that Thom and co. are doing this tour the right way, and giving the fans their money's worth. Peep the setlist to get an idea of what they've got road-ready:

1. All I Need
2. There There
3. Lucky
4. 15 Step
5. Where I End and You Begin (and we show up late)
6. Nude
7. Pyramid Song
8. Optimistic
9. Wierd Fishes/ Arpeggi
10. National Anthem
11. Idioteque
12. You and Whose Army?
13. Reckoner
14. Everything In Its Right Place
15. Bangers and Mash
16. Bodysnatchers
17. Videotape

First Encore
18. The Gloaming
19. Talk Show Host
20. Just
21. Faust Arp
22. How To Disappear Completely

Second Encore
23. Paranoid Android
24. House of Cards

here's what "There There" might look like live...

Am pretty much peeing my pants with excitement about seeing them here in Scotland in a month.
