Thom Yorke’s Atoms for Peace Wait Till On-Sale Date to Detail Three Live DJ Sets
...Ensuring no one can get tickets
Thom Yorke and Radiohead producer/Atoms For Peace cohort Nigel Godrich unveiled details of three upcoming live DJ sets today (February 8). The notoriously elusive (but occasionally candid) duo waited until the on-sale date to announce said shows, meaning the tickets have disappeared almost as quickly as those two new songs that Godrich uploaded and subsequently removed from SoundCloud last month.
To coincide with the release of Atoms For Peace’s upcoming (and highly anticipated) full-length, Amok (out February 26 via XL), Yorke and Godrich will DJ at London’s Oval Space on February 22; Berlin’s Berghain on March 8; and New York’s Le Poisson Rouge on March 14.
Actress and Throwing Snow are billed as special guests for the London gig, while Shed and Anstam will make an appearance at the Berlin event. Audiovisual artist Tarik Barri will contribute visuals for those two European sets. The guests for the New York show have not yet been announced, but tickets are already sold out. Console yourself by listening to Amok’s two singles: “Default” and “Judge, Jury and Executioner.”
