Best Of 2012

Best Concert of the Past 12 Months: Radiohead

Here it is: Of all the thousands and thousands of shows in the St. Louis area in the last 365 days, the stop Radiohead made at the Scottrade Center stands alone. There were better moments, surely, and more important ones to individual bands and fans. But no show brought such a large group of people to such rapturous consensus — Thom Yorke and Co. sent the assembled arena into an apocalyptic dancing sway, needling out the kick-ass in a record (The King of Limbs) that didn't seem to have much of that through stereo speakers. Make no mistake: Radiohead is a band that can do gargantuan, monstrous rock and sinewy roll and everything in between.
