Thom Yorke @ Orpheum, Los Angeles 10/4/09

Unlike Friday’s show at the Echoplex, Thom Yorke and his new crew’s Orpheum gig last night was not a “rehearsal.” What that seems to mean, in practical terms, was one big tradeoff (less bare Yorke chest/belly, more extensive stage lighting setup) and one setlist deviation in Sunday night’s addition of “Super Collider.” Photographer Andrew Youssef files these photos, and tells us that, in a sweet gesture, Yorke dedicated “Paperbag Writer” to Colin Greenwood, who was in attendance to check out the set and not because he’s threatened by Flea at all. (Danny Masterson, Tobey Maguire, Don Johnson (!), and Anne Hathaway also attended too, but got no dedication.) Last night’s setlist and some video:

01 “The Eraser”
02 “Analyze”
03 “The Clock
04 “Black Swan”
05 “Skip Divided”
