LIVE, IN PHOTOS: Thom Yorke at The Greek Theatre
The Radiohead frontman took his Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes project to Berkeley for a memorable sold-out performance.
Thom Yorke loves playing the Greek—and it showed during his set there last Friday as he smiled all night, danced non-stop, and soaked in the love from the exceptionally warm Berkeley crowd. After a brief solo set from Italian electro-acoustic artist Andrea Belfi, Yorke took the stage alongside Nigel Godrich and visual artist Tarik Barri.
Barri’s visuals were hyper vivid and almost seemed to make Yorke fight harder for the crowd’s attention as he bounced around the stage for nearly two hours straight. It was all solo material until the encore, when Yorke came out to the piano, saying, “As you know, your country and my country are going through a moment of collective madness. We could talk about the reasons. The reasons are no longer important. What’s important is to wake the fuck up. In that spirit I’m reminded of an older song from a previous era called ‘Like Spinning Plates.’”
The moment, fortunately, was captured on video—and the rest of the show can be relived via photo below.
