I Heart Radiohead

06.30.06

Sorry I’ve been such a slacker this month! I’ve been meaning to post about Radiohead since Kalila and I went to their June 4th show at the Bank of America Pavillion in Boston, but haven’t found the right picture to accompany it till now. We had wanted to see Radiohead for the longest time and finally got our chance as they decided to do a short tour this summer before their new album comes out early next year. It is quite rare for a band to tour in order to test their new material rather than just tour after it is released. I have to say that this was probably the best live show that I’ve been to of any artist. I think what helped was the venue being the BOA Pavillion which is an outdoor tent that seats about 5,000 people and doesn’t really have a bad seat any where. We paid a $100 each ticket and would do it again for this band, no questions asked. The sound was crisp, clean, and intelligent. Their look was modern, simple, and complex. I am glad to finally say that I have seen them as they are one of the greatest bands of this age.
