In 2004, three bad brothers you know so well handed out 50 camcorders to fans at a sold out Beastie Boys concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Ad-Rock, McA, and Mike D told those fans to fight for their right for good camera angles and to keep the cameras rolling at all times. Two years later, the footage captured from the show was cut together and released as the concert film Awesome; I Fuckin’ Shot That! to mild critical acclaim. This week, a Radiohead concert film dropped on YouTube that was kind of sorta conceived in the same way. The major difference is Radiohead Roseland Ballroom NYC 2011-09-29 Full Show multi-cam Sbd audio came to be not from top-down instruction, but bottom-up organization and a fan culture reminiscent of Deadhead tape traders. Basically, a handful of fans from Ateaseweb (an online hub for Radiohead fanatics) compiled fan-shot footage »

Finally! A time-lapse video that we can really get behind. Directed by Matt Ornstein -- and set to the tune of Radiohead's "The Daily Mail" -- this time-lapse was shot during Bonnaroo this year and features footage from the Tennessee music festival, leading up to the band's headlining live performance.
"The Daily Mail" was released as a digital download from Radiohead's King Of Limbs: Live From the Basement live video collection. In an interview with BBC Radio 1, Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brien revealed that the single had been in the works for "at least six years." However, when Radiohead decided to perform the song during their From the Basement set, the final arrangement "came together within a week."

What happens when you wrangle some of the finest, most critically acclaimed musicians today, fly them to New Zealand and get them to collaborate on an album and live concert? Well, you'll find out in the music documentary "The Sun Came Out," a look behind the curtain at a pretty phenomenal undertaking all done in the name of charity.
In 2001 Neil Finn, lead singer and founder of Crowded House, gathered folks like Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, Johnny Marr of The Smiths, Phil Selway and Ed O'Brien from Radiohead, Sebastian Steinberg of Soul Coughing and Lisa Germano, and they staged three successful charity concerts under the moniker 7 Worlds Collide. Seven years later at Piha on the wild west coast of Auckland, Neil did it again, this time inviting Wilco and KT Tunstall to the line-up, and in addition to three concerts, they recorded a double album of new songs in just three weeks. »

-- Adele is the rare star that doesn't need multiple magazine covers, a cosmetics contract or a clothing line to sell albums. She does it all based on the strength of that sumptuous voice and those stirring songs.
That's a rarity in today's pop world, where artists are overexposed and their music often comes second to what they're promoting in tandem with it.
Adele scored an unlikely critical and commercial triumph with "21," last year's best-selling album, all based off the artistry of songs like "Rolling in the Deep" and "Someone Like You." And she'll be richly rewarded come Sunday, when the Grammys hand out their trophies at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. While Kanye West is the lead nominee with seven, Adele, who's up for six, will be the act who dominates – well, at least that's what We think. »
London, Jan 26: Moviegoers may have felt 'Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2' was more magical than the previous parts because it was the last in the series, according to researchers.
University of Michigan researchers say people often view the 'last' moments of an event positively simply because they signal the end of an experience.
They found that even if the experience is painful or negative, but concludes on a pleasant note, people would consider the event a more positive experience.
"Endings are powerful," the Daily Mail quoted Ed O'Brien, a graduate student in the U-m Department of Psychology, as saying.
