Atoms for Peace/Thom Yorke at Coachella

Thom Yorke and Atoms for Peace wrapped up their tour last night with a performance at Coachella. Drawing a huge crowd, the band played an energetic set on par with what they have been playing all tour. Rumors were blowing up on Twitter before the show that Radiohead may show up on stage but that proved to be false. We have reports that the other members of Radiohead were at the festival, but only to enjoy it as fans.

Setlist:

01 The Eraser
02 Analyse
03 The Clock
04 Black Swan
05 Skip Divided
06 Atoms for Peace
07 And it Rained All Night
08 Harrowdown Hill
09 Cymbal Rush

ENCORE:

10 Give up the Ghost
11 Airbag
12 Everything in its Right Place
13 Paperbag Writer
14 Judge, Jury & Executioner
15 The Hollow Earth
16 Feeling Pulled Apart By Horses

What happens now? It was a fun tour and hope that it isn’t too long before something else happens in the Radioheadverse.

Atoms for Peace

Atoms for Peace played their second show at the Fox Theater in Oakland, CA last night. We were there and can tell you it was a pretty amazing experience. I’ve seen Radiohead countless times and never have I seen Thom Yorke so energetic. He was all over the place, literally. As in previous shows, Atoms for Peace played a lot of from The Eraser, as well as some new tracks.

The final encore brought a cover of Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” which had been heard before during soundchecks on the tour but never played to an audience. As you can imagine, the crowd went nuts and it was a great way to end the show.

Here’s the setlist:

01. The Eraser
02. Analyse
03. The Clock
04. Black Swan
05. Skip Divided
06. Atoms For Peace
07. And It Rained All Night
08. Harrowdown Hill
09. Cymbal Rush

ENCORE:

10. Skirting On The Surface (false start)
11. Open The Floodgates
12. Skirting On The Surface
13. Airbag
14. The Daily Mail
15. Paperbag Writer
16. Judge, Jury and Executioner
17. The Hollow Earth
18. Feeling Pulled Apart By Horses

ENCORE 2:

19. Love Will Tear Us Apart (Joy Division cover)
