The beginning of the weeks starts with Saturday, at least this week when it comes to Radiohead. The British band took the stage this weekend as the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live,” the first of four major New York events for the group.
Thom Yorke wiggled his way through “Lotus Flower” from “The King of Limbs” and non-album track “Staircase” on the longstanding variety show. Portishead drummer Clive Deamer was on hand for both performances. Deamer made his television debut with the band in June, when they taped a performance for Nigel Godrich’s “Live from the Basement” in London.
There’s still no indication what collection — if any — “Staircase” will arrive on.
Radiohead return to TV tonight, as they appear for an unprecedented hour-long episode on “The Colbert Report” with Stephen Colbert on Comedy Central.
Today, tickets went on sale and subsequently sold-out for two concerts at New York’s mid-sized Roseland Ballroom this week, on Sept. 28 and 29.
