Radiohead | Other Lives March 9, 2012 Scottrade Center On Feburay 13, 2011, there was nothing much to say about Radiohead. On February 18, there was a new album, The King of Limbs, propelled into the world by its creators with little more than a shrug. There were no interviews, no tour dates, no wo ... More >>
Radiohead, in its constant evolution, remains spectacular -- check back in this space for a full review and photos. Those left confused by last year's groovy King of Limbs got answers last night at the Scottrade Center. The band casting one the largest shadows in music came in channeling Spicoli (al ... More >>
Gut Check put this evening's Radiohead concert at Scottrade Center on our schedule as soon as it was announced. We grew up with the band -- we bought "Creep" on cassingle! -- and over hundreds of spins of the band's records, we've noticed that on more than a few occasions in his lyrics, Thom Yorke h ...

Livenation has just released a limited number of tickets for tonight's formerly sold-out Radiohead show at the Scottrade Center. You can purchase them through the Livenation site here. The newly released tickets are on either side of the stage, in the Plaza level sections 101 and 118 as well as som ... More >>
7:30 p.m. Friday, March 9. Scottrade Center, 1401 Clark Avenue.
When Radiohead comes to town, it's a big deal. And for good reason: The Oxford super-group only plays in St. Louis every four or five years, meaning there's pent-up demand for one of the most popular live acts around. Still, Friday's sold-out show at the Scottrade Center (1401 Clark Avenue, 314-241 ... More >>
This week brings us not one but TWO members of the Wu-Tang Clan (unfortunately on separate nights), Japanese punk-weirdos Peelander-Z, and the first visit ever from Seattle's raw Ramones-y punk band the Spits in its entire ten years of existence. Continuing with the punk rock / hip-hop aesthetic is ... More >>
9 p.m. Tuesday, February 7. Gramophone, 4243 Manchester Avenue.
Shouldn't have waited, dude.Radiohead's March 9 show at the Scottrade Center (1401 Clark Avenue, 314-241-1888) is now sold out. Ours was the final show to do so in the month of March, meaning all the other dates anywhere near here were already full. You could always...go to Coachella? Other ... More >>
"Summer after high school when we first met / We make out in your Mustang to Radiohead" Such is the opening couplet of "The One Who Got Away" by the inescapable Katy Perry. The namedrop is confusing. Radiohead is beyond famous at this point, so it's not necessarily a cred pull on Perry's part; if t ... More >>
Don't be like this dance enthusiast and miss out. You know by now: Radiohead has announced the first leg of its 2012 tour and St. Louis has one of the shows. It's on March 9th at the Scottrade Center, and tickets go on sale through Ticketmaster on Saturday at 10 a.m. But some spots (history ... More >>

However, they range from $45 to $69 for the Dallas show (before fees) and $34 to $54 for the Phoenix one. Other Lives will open this enti ... More >>
Hat tip to reader Jameson for passing along this tip: Those cagey Radiohead fellows are releasing a new album, The King of Limbs, on February 19. Now, the album isn't free like In Rainbows was, but the digital download is only $9 for MP3, $14 for WAV. There's also a reasonably priced deluxe v ... More >>
It's Pavement!Before this post devolves into whining that Kansas City gets all the best shows, let the record show that in recent years, St. Louis has hosted Radiohead, Tom Waits and (this weekend) the Magnetic Fields -- and our neighbor to the west hasn't. That being said: Indie-slacker demi ... More >>
Last night in LA at the tiny Henry Fonda Theater, Radiohead performed a benefit show for Oxfam International. (Proceeds from the show will benefit the organization's efforts in Haiti.) Ex-RFT colleague Randy Roberts was at the show and gives a full play-by-play right here. Of note is that Radioh ... More >>
Everything's better in Canada, right? Including and especially its music, at least in recent years. (I'm being facetious, for the record. Mostly.) But Jets Overhead is one shining example of the country's solid exports. The band's sophomore effort, No Nations, recently came out on Vapor Records -- y ... More >>
8:30 p.m. Thursday, July 23. The Firebird, 2706 Olive Street.
Because I'm on vacation, I'm writing this FROM THE PAST (ooh, spooky), and there won't be any live-blogging about Sunday's Grammy Awards broadcast from me this year. However, consider this post an open commenting thread for the show. According to Grammy.com, the list of performers is crazytown:Curre ... More >>
Vintage Vinyl just released its list of best-selling LPs and CDs of 2008. (Physical product? Remember that?) Interesting to see how many local releases -- and how much hip-hop/R&B/rap -- is on the CD list, while how much old (and new) indie rock is on the LP list. Looks like you kids are downloa ... More >>
