If you live in Detroit and you’re a fan of food and lonely minimalism (so, everyone), you might want to head to chef Kyle Hanley’s pop-up restaurant on Wednesday night for “A Night With Kid A,” a 10-course meal based around Radiohead’s landmark 2000 album. Unfortunately, the names of the courses aren’t pun heavy (“I’d like one How to Disappear Carpletely please!”), but they still sound delicious.

Should Hanley move onto Amnesiac, he probably won’t have a hard time coming up with something for “Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box.”
