After a few days of rumors and speculation about a possible “secret” gig at LA’s Echoplex on Friday night, Thom Yorke has finally confirmed that his new band (Flea, Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker, and Mauro Refosco) are playing the show. Here’s what he just posted on Dead Air Space:
Hey what are you doing tomorrow night? so listen right
that band thats doesnt really have a name that im working with at the moment??????
have decided to do a warm-up show on Friday Oct 2nd around 9pm at the Echoplex in Los Angeles
Its not that big, it’ll be total chaos and its kind of a rehearsal but .. if you are near by..
below is a link to get tickets.
hope you get lucky with it. if not you’ve got to be a really really really good friend to get in: )
so ain’t no point hanging around outside if you’re not!
the link should go live at 8.15pm
(i’ll believe that when i see it)
all the best
**Update: The link Thom provides gets an error message, which I first thought meant the show is sold out. This page on Ticketweb, however, says that tickets go on sale tomorrow at 12PM PDT. I’m not sure why Thom said “8.15pm,” but either way, it’s going to sell out in seconds.
