Radiohead listening party in NYC

Radiohead will be previewing their much anticipated CD KID A at the Sony IMAX Theater Lincoln Center (68th Street and Broadway Manhattan) in a state of the art multi-media presentation. The band have made an extremely limited number of tickets available to the general public. They will be available on a first come, first serve basis starting at 6pm Tuesday night (Sept 5) ONLY.

We reported this earlier this week as as listening party for press and retail only. It now appears that they will be allowing the public to come as well. Good luck!

There may be other listening parties in other US cities soon. Stay tuned…
