So stoked for this. Shit.
So stoked for this. Shit.
I was so used to seeing their name on every fake poster that it took me a while to realize they are actually playing. So pumped to be seeing them again. The first time I saw them remains unequivocally the best show I've ever seen, so I'm hoping they can top it.
TKOL is the album that every Radiohead fan loves to hate. I admit upon my first few listens, I was in the same boat. But I put it away for a few months and then returned to it and connected with it just as I did with their previous albums. I suggest this for everyone else. Maybe it won't work, but it could happen the same way it did for me. And, "Lotus Flower" is going to sound godly on the Polo Fields so don't worry.
i have to agree that at first the king of limbs didn't really do anything for me, but i've since gone back and watched the basement performance several times and the album has really started to grow on me.

If there is a Mangum/RH conflict I may have to cut myself in half in an attempt to see both
The most overrated band ever! Showertime for me unless someone else decent is playing in this slot.
Be sure not to drown in your shower. Or drown.

I plan on closing my nights with:
Swedish House Mafia
Radiohead could possibly top any set I've seen the past 3 years. Haven't seen them since Outside Land first night ever in 2008.
Glad about it.

Goldenvoice, do not put some rave bullshit on after Radiohead. Let them close the stage, or there will be blood.
I'm thinking Kaskade---> Guetta in the Sahara during Radiohead? Would be brilliant booking actually. Take away that crowd and make the main stage less crowded. I hope they get longer than 2 hrs.
Serious question though, considering the Thom Yorke cluterfuck in 2010 how early do you think you'll have to get there to get a decent spot? I'm not waiting all day, but I think it's not going to be just a case of "get there as Bon Iver is finishing" thing. Will I be forced to watch all of Bon Iver just to get a decent spot (not that I hate him, Just thinking better stuff will be going on like Flylo)
Wasn't that because The Pixies asked them to play that song?

They should return the favor and play a Prince song.
I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.
I want to hear Planet Telex, 15 step, and House of Cards. Is this going to be likely?
