Honestly, it's always a thrill to see Radiohead in concert. Their songs, inspired and crafted in the studio, take on new life live. On Sept. 28 and 29, the band performed at Roseland Ballroom in NYC. It wasn't the tour so many of us hoped for—just two NYC dates—but some lucky folks, including me, got to see their new two-drummer configuration and hear new and some surprising old songs, such as "Subterranean Homesick Alien."

The band has given us a track from the first night at Roseland Ballroom, a cut not on King of Limbs called "Daily Mail." They also are letting folks know they're heading back to the States for a more proper tour.
