Thom Yorke Makes Surprise Guest DJ Appearance at the Roosevelt Last Night
Thom Yorke spun at Tropicana at the Roosevelt Hotel last night, according to many Tweets. The Tuesday evening gig, normally a weekly event hosted by Ashtar Command/Yum Yum/Paul McCartney DJ Chris Holmes, turned up a notch when longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich showed up with Yorke, who jumped on the turntables (and apparently played Major Lazer). A source says that the surprise DJ set was totally unplanned and therefore unannounced. What Yorke's up to in LA is top secret. We've heard rumors, but we're not allowed to spread them just yet.
Here's a little taste of the surprise Tweets:
@djerictm: @brokemogul Thanks for that Thom Yorke tweet. I never would've gone out.
