Surprise Thom Yorke Show at Echoplex this Friday?

by Jonathan on September 30, 2009

Thom and Nigel at the Roosevelt, Los AngelesRumors are buzzing about a surprise Thom Yorke + new band show this Friday at the Echoplex in Los Angeles. Radiohead’s publicists are not confirming or denying the rumor and it’s not quite clear if this show would be open to the public or if it’s a special guest list type of thing. More info on this when we get it.

Word on the street is that Thom did another DJ set last night at the Roosevelt. Did you see it?

In related news, details about the upcoming shows at the Orpheum in L.A. have arisen. Mauro Refosco, the Brazilian percussionist that is in Thom’s new band, discussed the setlists in an interview with Abril.com. The band is prepared to play the full Eraser album, as well as four new songs. More information about Mauro can be found here.

Lastly, there is a lot of speculation out there that Radiohead as a band is over. The band’s publicists have made it clear that this is not the case and Thom even said that this new project is just for fun.

UPDATE: Thom confirmed that the show is happening!


Thom Yorke Makes Surprise Guest DJ Appearance at the Roosevelt Last Night – Los Angeles Music – West Coast Sound.

L.A. Weekly is reporting that Thom Yorke was a surprise guest DJ last night at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles.

Thom Yorke spun at Tropicana at the Roosevelt Hotel last night, according to many Tweets. The Tuesday evening gig, normally a weekly event hosted by Ashtar Command/Yum Yum/Paul McCartney DJ Chris Holmes, turned up a notch when longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich showed up with Yorke, who jumped on the turntables (and apparently played Major Lazer). A source says that the surprise DJ set was totally unplanned and therefore unannounced. What Yorke’s up to in LA is top secret. We’ve heard rumors, but we’re not allowed to spread them just yet.

What is Thom doing in L.A.? Hmmm….
