Supergroup...assemble!

Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke will hit the states next month for a mini-tour with his newly named side project, Atoms for Peace.

The band, featuring Flea, much lauded producer Nigel Godrich, and Beck drummer Joey Waronker, was assembled for Yorke's Eraser tour, and the shows will likely heavily feature songs from that excellent solo album, along with a few new jams (and a couple Radiohead tunes, for good measure).

Atoms for Peace play Chicago's Aragon with opener Flying Lotus on April 10 and 11. I, for one, would actually be grateful for the opportunity to see Mr. Yorke indoors...

Speaking of Radiohead, everybody see this great re-edit of Jay Leno's new promo? Its soundtrack change is much more appropriate:

It's tempting to try to get tickets, but while 16-year-old-in-love-with-Thom-Yorke Celeste might have paid whatever it will cost, a-decade-older Celeste isn't going to.

Totally. But like a sucker, I'll still try to get them...
