I FINALLY got to see Radiohead and it was awesome. Hands down the best
band of the last 2 decades (at least). Started out in the 6th row
(although waaaaay off to the side) and ended up switching with some
other people to move up to the 4th row (still way to the side). Security was pretty loose so I was able to bring my camera in. Since
this is probably the only time I'll ever get to see Radiohead live, I
figured I should do it right. The setlist was great, although as a Bends lover, I would've liked to hear a couple more Bends songs, as
well as "Bangers and Mash". Damn you Vancouver! Thom wasn't too
talkative, other than when he forgot the words to "Street Spirit". The
whole band looked like they were enjoying themselves. The crowd was
pretty good. although there were plenty of too-cool-for-words LA types
which is to be expected. I missed my first celebrity sighting (Ellen Degeneres) because I wasn't paying attention.
My major score
of the night was getting the setlist. The guitar tech was nice enough
to throw it to me and I managed to catch it and not look like a fool.
Tonight is the Black Keys and while they're good live, nothing compares to Radiohead.
