Members Of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Parquet Courts, Dismemberment Plan, & More To Join Forces For Brooklyn Rock Lottery 5

I first learned about the music scene roulette known as the Rock Lottery when some industrious creative types in Columbus started throwing their own annual holiday spinoff, the Rock Potluck, about a decade ago. But Rock Lottery, which returns to Brooklyn for the fifth time this December with a star-studded lineup, actually had it… More »

Atoms For Peace/Flying Lotus @ Roseland, NYC 4/5/10

Atoms For Peace took the stage at Roseland moments after my iPad (j/k) lit up with a NYTimes alert about the Pentagon's new limits on when the U.S. can use nuclear weapons. "For the first time, the United States is explicitly committing not to use nuclear weapons against nonnuclear states that are in compliance… More »

Thom Yorke Names His ???? Band Atoms For Peace, Announces Tour Dates

Turns out the Thom Yorke???? moniker was too self-aggrandizing even for Thom Yorke, bless him. Each of those question marks -- Mauro Refosco, Joey Waronker, Flea, and Nigel Godrich -- are now accounted for in the name Atoms For Peace, the official moniker for the newly christened Radiohead side-project Thom unveiled in More »

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."

Thom Yorke @ Echoplex, Los Angeles 10/2/09

This was not the low-key warm-up gig ("total chaos ... kind of a rehearsal") Thom promised. Attendees of last night's pre-Orpheum preview got a full (and by most (Twitter) accounts "awesome") 90-minute set beginning with The Eraser played by Thom's new group (Nigel Godrich, Flea, Joey Waronker, Mauro Refosco). This was followed by a… More »
