Thom Yorke - Bridge School Benefit, Oct. 26, 2002

In October 2002, Radiohead's Thom Yorke (solo & acoustic) played each night of the annual Bridge School Benefit shows. As you may know, these are organized each year by Neil Young (yes, that one) to aid The Bridge School in its mission to assist children with severe speech and physical disabilities. Each year they manage to assemble an amazing lineup of artists eager to perform for such a good cause. Today I share Thom's set from the first day of the 2002 edition of the shows, and I plan to provide the set from the second day in the near future. FYI, this is a damn good digital audience recording reportedly done with handy little Audio Technica 831's.

Please let me know if the filehosts act up. I'm using both EZarchive and File Lodge to host these, so we'll see if any bandwidth issues emerge. Enjoy!

Bonus mp3:
Pedro the Lion - Let Down [live Radiohead cover]

UPDATE: 6:25pm, 4/3, rehosted tracks 6-9 on EZarchive. Sorry FileLodge crapped out.

ezarchive > filelodge

the downloads from filelodge are ending themselves early for me so im only getting 30-sec clips of the songs.

FYI, I just tried one of the FileLodge tracks ("Right Click > Save Link As") and got it to download just fine. Maybe the server was just busy?

If problems persist, let me know.
