Radiohead Concert!

Okay, we realize not everyone is as into Radiohead as we are, but for those of you who are, this one's for you.

Our tickets were for lawn/general admission seating, so we got there early and scored a spot at front-row, center. They played most of the songs from their new album, as well as some great old ones. Here's the set list:

All I Need
Bobysnatchers
There There
Reckoner
The Gloaming
Morning Bell
Nude
How to Disappear Completely
15 Step
Weird Fishes/Arpeggi
Idioteque
Bullet Proof..I Wish I Was
Where I End and You Begin
Airbag
Everything In Its Right Place
The National Anthem
Videotape

Encore 1
Optimistic
Just
Faust Arp
Exit Music (For a Film)
Bangers & Mash

Encore 2
House of Cards
Street Spirit (Fade Out)

Here are a few photos from the show:







Though video recorders weren't allowed into the venue, we were able to get a couple quick videos with our digital camera. They aren't great, but it's at least a taste of what we got to see:

Sorry, this one is annoying to watch since our camera has trouble focusing on video mode, but enjoy the music anyway. :)

This one's pretty dark, so it's hard to see much, but Thom hits a sweet, long note:

A little shaky at first (it's just so hard to stand still during this song!), but here's a brief clip of "15 Steps":

Crazy light show:

A piece of "Videotape":

If you search for "Radiohead West Palm Beach" on YouTube, you can find longer clips, but they aren't much better quality, since everyone was taking them with their cameras like we were. (Okay, this one is better...but it still doesn't do it justice.)

All I can say is, it was a sweet night; the concert was amazing. If you're a Radiohead fan, definitely try to find a way to get to one of their shows. You can find their tour dates here.
