Everything in it’s Right Place

Radiohead, Vancouver, 2008. No question, this was the single greatest concert I have ever been to. It rained from the moment Radiohead hit the stage, and was POURING.  HARD. by the time they played Paranoid Android, which made the lines, “Rain down, rain down/Come on rain down on me” all the more poignant.

Some pictures:  shot from my iPhone, which, regrettably means they look like ass.

    They never play Creep. They HATE that song. They always have. It’s a long story as to why they hate it as much as they do, but it’s a combination of the fact that they think it sounds wimpy, it became a hit mostly against their will, and then when it surged in popularity, they were forced to play it non-stop to keep their careers alive until their second album. They’ve paid their dues, I don’t need them to play it anymore.
