W.A.S.T.E. released a small block of tickets to fans early this morning and they sold out pretty quick. Unfortunately, they do not pre-announce exactly when this happens so all we knew in advance was that it would be some time today. If you weren’t able to secure some, you still have a chance when the general sale starts on 11/12, except for the Tampa show which goes on sale 11/19.
Please check out Radiohead’s tour dates page for all the information you need about how to purchase. Good luck!

Tonight Radiohead will be playing the first of two shows at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom. The show is sold out, so if you don’t have a ticket, you’re probably out of luck. Don’t trust scalpers as both tonight and tomorrow’s shows require the person who purchased the tickets to pick them up from Will Call right before the performances.
As expected, fans are already outside the venue waiting to get in. To help pass the time, they were given copies of the Universal Sigh newspaper by the fine folks at w.a.s.t.e.

Speaking of w.a.s.t.e., they have put a bunch of Roseland-specific merchandise up on the w.a.s.t.e. store for you to purchase. Check it out!
w.a.s.t.e. sent out an email last week about a new remix contest that is going on:
To coincide with asking radio stations to think about playing Reckoner we are breaking up the tune into pieces for you to remix. After the insane response we got from the Nude remix stems and the site that was dedicated to your remixes…
Unique visitors: 6,193,776, Page Views: 29,090,134, Hits: 58,340,512, Bandwidth: 10.666 Terabytes, Number of mixes: 2,252, Number of votes: 461,090, Number of track listens: 1,745,304
…we thought it only fair to do the same with a tune that at least is in 4/4. You can get the stems (the different instruments/elements) from here
Sample, cut, take the sounds, whatever. Play it in a club. Or your room. Then if you want you can upload your finished mixes to http://www.radioheadremix.com and be judged by everyone else. You can create a widget allowing votes from your own site, Facebook or MySpace to be sent through too. To start things off we asked James Holden and Diplo to do their versions.
Oh, and by the way, if you weren’t lucky enough to get your hands on one of our recycled plastic bottle shirts at a show this summer, you’ll be glad to hear we’ve made some more and they are available at the w.a.s.t.e. shop here
All at w.a.s.t.e x
This was posted on DAS today:
The download area that is “In Rainbows” will be shutting its doors on the 10th December 2007.
A big thank you to everyone who came and downloaded the music. It’s been the most positive thing we’ve done and we hope you shared the experience with others.
The discbox will still be available from the w.a.s.t.e store here until they have all gone. We then have no plans to make further stock.
For those of you who wish to buy In Rainbows in the usual way, it will be available on CD/Vinyl and download from traditional outlets from the 31st December 2007.
The record will be released by TBD Records in North America and XL Recordings for the rest of the world.
Thanks for everything.
Here’s the latest email from the people at w.a.s.t.e.:
As you will note, this is a short (yet sweet) message to notify w.a.s.t.e. members of two things.
We have recently added a pleasant garment to our range of pleasant garments. The new reversible shirt is to be found in the brand spanking new section.
Following Stanley Donwood and Tchocky’s success at the Grammy awards (Best Recording Package for the Amnesiac Limited Edition), we have managed to get hold of the Amnesiac Limited Edition. This can be found in the listen and watch section as Amnesiac CD and booklet.
That’s all for now.
Here’s a message sent from Thom to members of w.a.s.t.e.:
violence breeds violence
we need a world court
not a republican with his hands covered in oil and military hardware
lecturing us on world security
we need love and understanding and tolerance and good laws that apply to
everyone, upheld by those who are in a position to judge
praying for world peace is not such an embarrassing thing to do anymore
especially not this christmas.
thank you everybody on w.a.s.t.e. for still listening and sticking with
understanding the records we make,
i hope your christmas is peaceful and loving and spiritual.
does that sound silly?
