As previously announced, the new season of long-running PBS
series Austin City Limits begins this
weekend. Saturday night, Radiohead makes its debut appearance, taking to the
ACL stage for the first time. Viewers can tune-in to their local PBS station
for the season premiere; check local listings for times.

 

According to ACL:

Hi, we’re Radiohead, we’re pleased to meet you, says the band’s Thom Yorke by
way of a greeting in their ACL debut. Taped in Austin before a concert audience at ACL’s new
home, The Moody Theater, the premiere features an epic hour of music from one
of the world’s most acclaimed bands. Drawing largely from their last three
albums, The King of Limbs, In Rainbows and Hail to the
Thief
, and also touching on classics from Kid A and OK
Computer
as well as the odd obscure B-side and rare and unreleased tracks,
Radiohead blazes through some of their most daring material in a masterful
performance… As if there was any doubt, this rare full-hour performance by one
of the most adventurous bands in rock music was well worth the wait, says Terry
Lickona, Executive Producer of Austin City Limits. “Thom Yorke and the boys
are on top of their game, and their exuberance on stage really comes across.
They continue to amaze, whether it’swith an old classic, a new twist or an
obscure track all but forgotten.”

 

Here’s a preview of the band:
