Thom Yorke sat down at the electric piano his crew had wheeled onto the stage for him and began playing… something, and he kind of let his hands brood over the keys for a few seconds. I knew what was coming but I didn’t really know. Eventually the familiar progression from Kid A’s “Everything in its Place” filled Toyota Center, backed by energetic electronic drums. I think I actually started dancing at that point, and I never dance.
This song, which came after the first encore, near the end of the show, was a sort of microcosm of the show as a whole, where Radiohead infused a great deal more verve into songs that have a more soothing, mellow feel when consumed in CD form.
