Atoms for Peace

My friend AL and I went to the Atoms for Peace show at the Fox Theater last night. It rocked.

They raced through the entire Eraser set. Harrowdown Hill is brilliant live with Flea on bass. This is a version from the night before last at the Fox:
This version has much better sound:

Then Thom Yorke came back out solo, played a couple new songs ("works in progress") on the piano:
and Airbag solo on the guitar.
Then the band came back out in the middle of The Daily Mail (this version's from last week's show in Boston):



They played several more new songs, and what I'm pretty sure was just an awesome jam session, and came back out one more time for a final encore of Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart:
Or here's another version:


UPDATE:
I usually love The Daily Cal's concert reviews. This is an exception.

This one is much better, and has video of a song they played Wednesday night with a trumpet that's brilliant.

  1. I am so jealous. I don't know why I didn't know about this until it was much too late (ie on Thursday when I coworker mentioned that he had gone)...I would have loved to go!
