I absolutely love live music but it has been quite some time since I've seen a show with 18,000 people in attendance! I really enjoy looking at gig photography, but I never end up bringing a camera to shows. My fear is that I wouldn't be able to take pictures and simultaneously get lost in the music that I came to enjoy. You know, kind of like walking and chewing gum at the same time. Fortunately in this digital age I can view other people's photos and even videos online shortly after the show.

The band performed a really great set playing material from seven of their albums. The first time I saw Radiohead was in a very small venue shortly after OK Computer was released. During the show this Thursday it dawned on me that several of the fans at the show were probably in elementary school when I was at my first Radiohead show. Well, I'm young at heart and you can never take that from me! Here is the setlist:
