The fever was high as Radiohead (the greatest living human band in the Milky Way) took the other night at the ridiculously small Roseland Ballroom. Truth be told, Roseland isn’t that small but it’s Radiohead we’re talking about. They could’ve sold out a small state. (Think Rhode Island). This was Radiohead’s first show in NYC since before the Aughts ended and in true form their loyally crazed fan base was out in full force. I personally sat by my computer hitting refresh every 20 seconds like a dammed fool, crying hysterically until the room filled with the tears of my infinite sadness as Ticketmaster taunted me with the dreaded ‘wait 15 minutes’ popup. Suffice it to say I didn’t grab a ticket, but if I had I would have been one of those camping out for 30 hours just to get a good spot near the stage. The line rapped around the block and scalpers were outside selling dreams for $600 dollars a pop. Still, from what I’ve heard Radiohead did their fans proud with a bevy of new and a few old hits.
