Radiohead raise money for Haiti

Radiohead live at All Points West - August 2008

Radiohead played a one off gig to raise money for Haiti last weekend in Los Angeles and details have emerged as to what the set list was.  They debuted a new song called “Lotus Flower.”  While I haven’t heard it, I am pretty sure it has nothing to do with a fan website where members can pay $77 a year to receive content long after it’s delivered for free on other sites.

According to NME, the setlist was:

‘Faust Arp’
‘Fake Plastic Trees’
‘Weird Fishes/Arpeggi’
‘The National Anthem’
‘Nude’
‘Karma Police’
‘Kid A’
‘Morning Bell’
‘How To Disappear Completely’
‘A Wolf at the Door’
‘The Bends’
‘Reckoner’
‘Lucky’
‘Bodysnatchers’
‘Dollars & Cents’
‘Airbag’
‘Exit Music’
‘Everything In Its Right Place’
‘You And Whose Army?’
‘Pyramid Song’
‘All I Need’
‘Lotus Flower’
‘Paranoid Android’
‘Street Spirit (Fade Out)’

For those that went, I hope you had a great time for a great cause and just know that I am uber-jealous!

Lady Gaga live at Radio City Music Hall

Lady Gaga!!!

When entertainment guru Peter Davis called Lady Gaga the “second coming of Madonna,” I knew she had some pretty big shoes to fill.  After seeing the 4th and final sold out show at Radio City Music Hall in New York, Peter was right on the money.  The Monster Ball reminded me of the video to Madonna’s “Dress You Up,” as so many ‘monsters’ were dressed in their favorite Gaga outfit.  It was pretty incredible.  The excitement for this show was what I imagine Michael Jackson’s Thriller tour would have been like if he toured for that record.  Gaga sang and danced and had an amazing set designed by my beloved Pet Shop Boys’ set designer Es Devlin.  Lady Gaga is arguably the biggest singer in the world right now, but she is so humbled by success, it was very impressive.  She donated ALL of the ticket sales and merchandise sales tonight to benefit the people of Haiti, which is extremely generous.  I lost count after about 15 times where she thanked all of her fans for their support.  Pretty cool, according2g.  I take back every negative thing I’ve ever said about Ms. Gaga (aside from her mediocre song lyrics).  She’s made me a fan!   🙂

See some more pix and the setlist after the jump.

Ga Ga ooh la la!
