Thom Yorke Rocks - Radiohead at Lakewood Amphitheatre Atlanta

Alright, the rest of Radiohead is awesome too, but it was such a treat to watch Thom do his rocker-caught-up-in-the-moment dances last night. I mean really, to be able to go on stage in front of thousands and thousands of people and just shake your booty like its nobody's business and then get paid for it? What a gig. Did I mention that Jay and Thom Yorke have the same birthday? He's that cool. Oh, and to the sixty or seventy year old guy next to Jay singing every song and playing his air guitar, rock on man, rock. on. I was trying to find a way to stealthily videotape him but it was just too dark. You'll have to settle for a video of Thom instead.

and some pics:

Mental note, there is a reason people pay for parking outside of the main lots at Lakewood, even though the main lots are free. They don't have to sit in traffic lock-down for an hour to leave.

The set list was:

All I Need
There, There
15 Step
Where I End and You Begin
Pyramid Song
National Anthem
You and Whose Army?
Everything In Its Right Place
Bangers N' Mash

The Gloaming
Talk Show Host
Faust Arp
How to Disappear

Paranoid Android
House of Cards

I know a third very cool person that has that same birthday.

Yes, I just happen to know another person too, but I don't think she is a Radiohead fan. But she is definitely very cool.
