Everything In It's Right Place.
I just got back from seeing Radiohead in Berkeley...
I'd seen the band during the Ok Computer tour and to say they have improved would be a gross understatment.
they have managed the unique feat of not only improving as a band but taking their work to another artistic level.
They played some great tracks from Ok Computer..Kid A, Hail to Thief and Amnesiac as well 6 new songs!!!
The new music they are playing is a progression of their past music but very different...
dare I say...more "funky"...
The visuals of the show were top notch..they used this cool style of focusing on each member of the band and puting them on odd shaped video screens...while using some filter that gave them this high contrast look...amazing..it must be seen to be believed..
I've been lucky enough to see many great bands live but this show with it's perfect set list and an encore of "Fake Plastic Trees" pushes it into my top three of all time fave shows...
In the words of Ferris Bueller..
"if you have the means I highly recommend it"..
