BREAKING - Radiohead Show Is All A Hoax! Not Playing Free Show At Occupy Wall Street!

by guestofaguest · September 30, 2011

    Earlier, we reported that Radiohead will be playing a free show downtown at the Occupy Wall Street protest - turns out, it's all a hoax!

    See the sequence of tweets below:

    Foster Kamer (@weareyourfek) tweeted:

    Radiohead's press reps to NYO: "Just got the official word that Radiohead is not playing this."

    That said, Radiohead playing tonight's Yankees/Tigers postseason game? Still on the table. They're Verlander fans. Of course.

    And yes, JK, about the Yankees thing. But they really are not, according to their reps, playing . Enjoy that press conference.

    Either this is a brilliant press strategy to stay DL, Radiohead's reps are out of the loop, or Occupy Wall Street guys are total idiots.

    UPDATE: Radiohead is NOT performing at Occupy Wall Street today 

    Originally we thought that alt-rock demi-gods Radiohead were playing a FREE show today at Liberty Plaza (10 Liberty Plaza) for Occupy Wall Street. Bummer!

    In the meantime, here's a rad video of them performing to try and lessen the blow:
