Thom Yorke in Concert at Stage AE; Steel Cactus Shadyside Brunch (Sun., 9/29/19)

1) Thom Yorke was in town last year with Radiohead at PPG Paints Arena, and he returns this year to Stage AE, but don’t expect any Radiohead songs. Rather, Yorke, the band’s frontman, is touring in support of Anima, his third solo album. (You might have seen the promotional short film, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, in your Netflix queue.) Yorke’s other solo work includes 2006’s The Eraser and 2014’s Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes. He also formed the supergroup Atoms for Peace in 2009 to perform songs from The Eraser. Members include bassist Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nigel Godrich, who has produced all of Yorke’s solo work. Godrich additionally produced Radiohead’s albums from 1997’s OK Computer to 2016’s A Moon Shaped Pool. Yorke’s movie credits include composing the soundtrack to the 2018 horror film Suspiria, and the song “Daily Battles” for Edward Norton’s upcoming Motherless Brooklyn. This event is sold out so check your alternate ticket sources. Doors open 7 p.m. 400 North Shore Dr., North Shore. (CM)
