Video From Radiohead’s Santa Barbara Webcast

Although the overlap between Barack Obama’s DNC address and Radiohead’s webcast of their final North American show this tour wasn’t total and complete, from your Santa Barbara liveblogging, it seems more than a few of you devoted your night to Obama’s Denver address. I think you guys chose wisely, both for the sake of Observing Significant Moments In American History, and for the sake of knowing that the Internet captures every move Radiohead makes in perpetuity anyway. What I saw of the concert was a nice reminder of my nights with them this summer, and a necessary chaser to hearing Chris Matthews yell at me about how essential Barack’s speech was. We’ve rounded up what we could of the high-quality YouTubes out there from the Santa Barbara set, along with a setlist, for your pleasure.
