Once upon a time, cameras were for the wealthy; and photography, as art,
for professionals only. Thanks to smartphones and even smarter apps,
photos and art have entered into a covenant for the masses at the altar
of Instagram, which Apple named the 2011 App of the Year.
‘Creep’ through these photos of Other Lives opening for Radiohead in Dallas last night.
Three hours’ drive to Dallas couldn’t deter a horde of Oklahomans from seeing the state’s most recently successful band play one of the biggest stages of its career last night.
Yes, Other Lives strolled through Dallas on tour with Radiohead, and the result was nothing short of wonderful. Hearing Thom Yorke praise the Stillwater group at the end of his band’s two-hours-plus set seemed like a pretty big victory for Oklahoma.
Check out our photos of Other Lives, and then Radiohead’s set list — which included some odd surprises — below. I’d take the time to write about it, but I’m still a little bit too much in awe from the whole experience to do it justice.
To put it short, however, the evening was light on frenetic Jonny Greenwood guitar moments (I would’ve sacrificed my firstborn for “Electioneering”), and heavy on intricate, deep-groove rhythmics, as Radiohead played heavily from The King of Limbs.
Radiohead set list “Bloom” “Little by Little” “Weird Fishes/Arpeggi” “Morning Mr. Magpie” “The Gloaming” “The Daily Mail” “Pyramid Song” “The Amazing Sounds of Orgy” (note: this song failed to inspire any orgy-like behavior amongst the crowd) “Karma Police” “15 Step” “Staircase” “Identikit” “Lotus Flower” “There There” “Feral” “Idioteque” encore break “Separator” “Climbing Up the Walls” “Bodysnatchers” “Everything in Its Right Place” encore break “Give Up the Ghost” (just Yorke and Greenwood) “Skirting on the Surface” “Reckoner” “Paranoid Android”
Pitchfork reports that last night was the band’s live debut of “The Amazing Sounds of Orgy” and “Skirting on the Surface.” Related: Radiohead has an impressive army of nerd-tastic, note-scribbling followers out there.
Opposition came in various forms at last week’s rally against the Personhood Act.

“Get the U.S. out of my uterus,” is just one of nearly 40 handwritten
signs held by stern-faced activists in Grace Fallen’s photography

an equally stark message of opposition to state Senate Bill 1433. Known
as the Personhood Act, the measure asserts that life begins at
