Radiohead, Live at Roseland (Soundboard Audio, Fan Video)
November 29, 2012
Back in 2010, Radiohead and a group of savvy fans combined audience-shot videos with band-provided soundboard recordings to document their Haiti earthquake relief concert in Los Angeles. Nearly the same scenario (with perhaps even more impressive results) arrived this week, as Gothamist reports Radiohead’s fall 2011 set at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City just got the bootleg/official audio mashup treatment for charity (Haiti, Hurricane Sandy, and/or Doctors Without Borders). Having just finished the 2-hour concert, I can confirm they chose a standout set to highlight. The audio alone is pristine, but what’s more, Radiohead seem particularly excited to share new material with an audience that had yet to hear The King of Limbs that late-September night. We’ve noted before the way their last LP opens up in live settings, and this show is a prime example. Plus, Jonny Greenwood plays drums, among his usual multi-instrumental contributions. Without further ado, check it out above and follow along with the setlist below.
