Don’t know about you, but if you live in Southern California (as I do), you have a certain pre-disposition to the earth moving out of control occasionally. It’s never when you expect it, and when it happens you never know how long its going to last or if this is a prequel to The Big One.
In case you don’t have the faintest clue of what I’m talking about – we’ve been having several earthquakes around Southern California the past few days – and each one carries with it a certain helplessness; that dizziness that overcomes you and knocks you to the floor while everyone is frantically racing for doorways.
What does this have to do with Radiohead and the Best Kept Secret Festival? Well, when the shaking finally stopped (according to a few sources, the shaking went on for between 30 seconds and a minute), I had a distinct craving to hear Radiohead in concert. Why? I couldn’t really tell you – but all I know is that there is something completely soothing about Thom York’s voice and just the music in general that takes me away from focusing on the room shaking – or getting ready for the next episode in this seismic odyssey.
Don’t know why, but Radiohead’s music has a kind of “all is right with the world” vibe to it; for me. I do not find Radiohead to be dismal, dark, foreboding or bleak, despite even friends protests to the contrary. Radiohead have always been pioneers as well as those musicians who continuously reach out and explore new things. So needless to say, this concert came to mind when the floor stopped moving and I was able to get my equilibrium back and check for whatever damage was visited upon the studio.
So that’s why I’m running this concert tonight – because I need to. And, of course it’s something I think you will enjoy as well.
Hit the play button and chill for the next 2 hours.
