Radiohead might not have made it to lower Manhattan to play for the Occupy Wall Street protesters, but Thom Yorke was able to show his support for the movement this week with a surprise DJ gig.
Yorke, Massive Attack's Robert del Naja and members of UNKLE spun tracks for Occupy London in the basement of an empty building owned by UBS. Around 100 members of the movement showed up to watch the set, which will be made available as a "pay what you want" download. All proceeds will go to the Occupy London movement.
"Artists are doing this in solidarity with the Occupy movement," spokesman Ronan McNern told the Guardian. "It's tremendous ... and hopefully it will be the first of many concerts."
