... a memento from last night's Atoms for Peace concert at the Wang Theater in Boston.
I didn't have high hopes for the show since I thought they wouldn't play any Radiohead songs, but then... Thom Yorke played "Like Spinning Plates" (from "Amnesiac") oh-so- beautifully...
All the other songs from his Eraser album got their shining spot last night, and lost and gained something in one go. The sweet detachment I can't help but imagine and like in that album was lost (as it was inevitable), but it was a happy loss - we all got much more by hearing it live by an ever-improvising, and even dancing, Thom Yorke.
Yes, the biggest surprise of all - Thom Yorke's little dance. I never thought he was the dancing sort of a lead singer, but it was such a delight to see him move about on the stage, forever swapping instruments, dancing, laughing, being his happy self.
