The British indie-rock megastars will show up in Zuccotti Park at 4 PM today according to a rumour reported by Gawker.
Thom Yorke is on the record as an anti-globalization advocate—a broadly anti-corporate cause in tune with Occupy Wall Street sentiment. Radiohead made the pay-what-you-want model famous musically with their album In Rainbows—so this wouldn’t be the first time the group took issue with capitalism.
Celebrity leftists are showing up at the protest with increasing regularity.
Everyone should try to get down there, on the off chance that it’s really real.
UPDATE #2 (2:18 PM): rumours are flying but the latest is that Radiohead will visit the protest but not perform. This comes from an Anonymous twitter feed.
UPDATE #3 (3:31 PM): No Radiohead today. The band just updated their Facebook. This appears to be the final word.
