?????? (aka Thom Yorke's side band) at The Orpheum - Night 1

Thom, Nigel, Flea, Mauro and Joey took the stage for Night 1 at the Orpheum tonight and played most of the same set as Friday at the Echoplex. The audience, which sat for the first quarter of the show until Thom reminded us that he wrote the Eraser to dance to, got all the greats from the album as well as a few news songs and the recent single release. Thom danced his ass off even more than usual as I believe that he and Flea are practicing for some sort of competitive dance-off :) It was awesome. I have never seen Flea perform before but he was clearly mad for Eraser and vice-versa. His monkey-dance bass playing is a perfect sidekick for Thom's freakout dancing. Judge, Jury and Executioner was a particular favorite among the new stuff that looks to be future RH material. Colin was in the crowd as were a number of PROFESSIONAL cameramen (as opposed to the 100s of amateur camera LCD's that popped up throughout the show).
