New York post-show - Day break.

New York post-show - Day break. Radiohead in town, the reviewers laugh or rave and Willie discovers rap tap.

New York. Almost a real day off. Radiohead are in town, staying down at the Paramount, so I dropped by to say hello. They are doing the Tibet gig too, and also a show of their own on Monday which is most exciting, as we will still be here. They are such a great band.

There was a hilarious PopMart review in the New York Daily News which described the transparent raincover over the band on stage as looking like a "giant sneeze guard". From the PopMart buffet section, one imagines. The New York Post just said "this was one of the greatest stadium shows ever presented". Well, you can't have everything, I guess.

Evening trip to see "Bring in da noise, bring in da funk" on Broadway. I have to say I wasn't overly enthused about seeing a tap dancing musical, but it turned out to be quite amazing. It is to regular tap dancing what Rap is to Shakespeare, and very moving too. Almost like a Rap Flamenco.
