An evening with Radiohead

Other Lives opened the evening by orchestrating a wild tantrum of musical oddities. Orand grinders, trumpets, violins, and more. But hey, it’s Radiohead, what else would you expect from an opener? It was astounding and am looking forward to hear from these musicians again.

Radiohead took stage soon after and the presence of Gods were definitely felt. Thom Yorke, the man who is famously known for his cooing vocals and melodramatic melodies. Radiohead’s setlist favored their latest album, The King of Limbs. The mood was set by performing the first track “Bloom” from their new album with “Little By Little” following.

The band cut through their set with very little to say in between while playing the classics. Seeing Radiohead performing their delicate’s in a stadium was not the best way to go. This band was made for small stages with intimate settings. Who needs to play small shows when the tickets at Toyota Center were sold out, but the band is set to play a very rare performance at ACL Studios this Tuesday in Austin, TX.

Ending their set with Rainbow’s “Reckoner” Radiohead played two encores including Separator, All I Need, Myxomatosis, and Everything In It’s Right Place while the 2nd encore fulfilled the stadium with Give Up The Ghost, Nude, and beautifully ended with Paranoid Android.

+Seeing Radiohead
- Not hearing anything from Pablo Honey/ The Bends
+ Hearing OK Computer’s Air Bag and Paranoid Android
+ They played There There, which was pretty bad ass.
+ Seeing the band pretty damn close.

+ = 4
- = 1
Radio head wins.


As you may know Toyota Center isn’t the best for picking up a signal for a phone call, but luckily I was standing next to someone who had enough energy to share. Their wifi name, Radiohead.
