I toyed with the idea of putting the word “supergroup” in the title, but I’ll hold off on that. Let’s just call them “friends.” Very, very famous friends. Flea, Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker, and Mauro Refosco will join Thom Yorke for two concerts at LA’s Orpheum theater in less than a week. Yorke made the announcement on Dead Air just moments ago (via CoS):
in the past couple of weeks i’ve been getting a band together for fun to play the eraser stuff live and the new songs etc.. to see if it could work!
here’s a photo.. its me, joey waronker, mauro refosco, flea and nigel godrich.
at the beginning of october the 4th and 5th we are going to do a couple of shows at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles.
we don’t really have a name and the set will not be very long cuz ..well …we haven’t got that much material yet!
but come and check it out if you are in the area. we’ve also got locals Lucky Dragons playing.
all the best
Do you have a credit card handy? Buy tickets for the shows today at 7AM EST here or here. Yorke & friends may just be dipping their toes in the supergroup waters, but they do have a promo pic (see above) already.
Oh Thom, I knew there was a reason you’ve been dressing for the second coming.
