There is a 2 ticket limit per household. All tickets will be available for pick up at will call the evening of the event beginning at 6:30 PM and entry into the venue is required immediately upon receipt. No tickets shall be distributed prior to the event.

In addition, Radiohead will appear on a very special one-hour episode of The Colbert Report featuring multiple songs and interview segments. And as previously announced, Radiohead will be musical guest on the September 24 season premiere of Saturday Night Live.

These TV performances and live shows are the band's first appearances in the U.S. since the release of its current album The King Of Limbs, which it made available digitally at www.Radiohead.com on February 18 and released to physical and digital retail via tbd Records on March 29.

If you had 3 Alf pogs and a mustache comb, and I had a fake mustache I would trade you the fake mustache for your 3 Alf Pogs. Then you could comb the fake mustache with your mustache comb. I'd even throw in the smash hit album from Spin Doctors called Pocket Full of Kryptonite to boot. I have several copies of the record and enjoy spreading the love of my favorite band.

Can I bring in my own hummus? Do they restrict it to tahini paste and/or baba ganoush? I could also make do with tabouleh.

Funny story, in 6th grade when we were first introduced in the class after summer we had to say our name, and the teacher thought it would be funny for us to include our favorite band. I had to go first because that was my position in the giant U. I couldn't think, I froze up and said Spin Doctors.

In the middle of the show, I made my way up to the front row and hoisted my balls onto the stage. At that moment, sweat dripped off Chris Barrons beard and my nuts shrank back to normal size. I know am happily married and have 3 kids. I owe the world to the Spin Doctors. My kids hate them though, cause I all do is play their cds on infinite loop in the house.

In my home country of Albania we have no other entertainment than bootleged CDRs from China. One time a shiny silver disc crossed my path with English handwriting on it. It was a black sharpie marker and it said "Hey Johnny, it's Thom your bandmate from Radiohead, I hope you like this CD as much as I do." Turns out it was Spin Doctors Pocket Full of Kryptonite in it's entirety. Not only did I now own the greatest bootlegged CDR of all time, but I owned Thom Yorke's personal copy. We built a special bulletproof case for it and keep it on the mantel in the stable of hay that I live in next to the sheep's pen to give all of the village children hope.

What can I say? Chris and I were young, egos ran amok, and I thought I could run my own show with the Travelers. Unfortunately me and the Travelers don't resonate with the kids the way the Spins do.

Alec Ounsworth here, lead singer of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. I'm #23 in the Spin Doctors fan club. Our new Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (CYHSY) album called Hysterical was inspired by The Spins. We used to get so baked and listen to the Spins smash hit album Pocket Full of Kryptonite (PFOK) on repeat and just smile and tell jokes. We would laugh so hard, and we couldn't help but name our new CYHSY album after all the good times we had listening to PFOK by The Spins.

Alec Ounsworth here again, lead singer of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. Granted we do love Radiohead, but Chris Barron is so much more captivating than Thom Yorke. Also, it's $80 to see Radiohead vs $10 to see Spin Doctors at Brooklyn Bowl. My money is on The Spins.

Chris Barron here, lead singer of Spin Doctors. The Spins rehearsed last night for our upcoming show at the Brooklyn Bowl. Keep in mind, it's only $10 to see us. We keep it real. Anyways, the reunion is progressing nicely, and the songs are as inspiring now as they were back then. Just wanted to let you know we appreciate all the love, and are really quite flattered at all the attention we've been getting on this thread. It means a lot to us. Love, Peace, and Patchouli -The Spins

I just finished reading "One Prince: the unauthorized story of Chris Barron" and it was one of the most influential pieces of literature that my eyes have ever gazed upon. While this book may be passed over at the moment, there is no doubt that one day it will be revered as one of the greatest works of this, or any other, generation.

Never felt better and I owe it all to doritos and me' loving mum. On top of that, our shows in oklahoma have always been top notch.

Summer, 1992: radio and MTV are abuzz with the sound and sight of four guys from New York City. In the Spin Doctors' stinging guitars, exuberantly visceral, funky rhythms and infectious, stylish vocals and lyrics were life and a palpable freedom that comes from a band doing what they were made to do. And it was good-damn good, actually, to the tune of eight million units sold of Pocketful of Kryptonite, two massive hits ("Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" and "Two Princes"), appearances at Woodstock '94 and Glastonbury, co-credit (along with Blues Traveler, Phish and Widespread Panic) as pioneers of the now-massive neo-hippie jam band movement, and the pinnacle of pop music success: the cover of the Rolling Stone.

the band's prolonged deconstructive surgery rolled back in waves during the sold-out Wetlands show. They remembered why they liked each other as people and recaptured their musical alchemy-the two qualities that drove their multiplatinum music (which, in accordance with the Theory of Insanely Catchy Sound, still plays in our heads a decade later). "We all walked away feeling really good about it," says Comess. "I know I walked away just thinkin' Wow."

Hi, I started dating Spin Doctors guy yesterday when we met at work. I wish you all would share in his passion for life, music, and love. He's trying to share his love for something wonderful with you. He may weigh 300lbs, be pale, but beauty lies within and I for one can see past his Oklahoma accent, morbidly obese physic, and dorito crust stained clothes. I'm now the #3 biggest Spin Doctors fan after him, and The Nation.

I think Chris Barron's favorite dorito is the volcano variety, so I think that should be the solution. A nice middle ground compromise in the spirit of The Spins.

Bill Berry here, former drummer from REM. I left REM a long long time ago when Spin Doctors promised me a job as their new full time drummer. It was great for a few weeks, but internal tension amongst the bass player & guitar player led to The Spins eventual break-up. Now they are back together, and I couldn't be happier. I hope to sit in on a few of the Pocket Full of Kryptonite tour dates when they make it down to the southeast. Sad news about REM today, but today you lose one great band and gain back another.

Thom Yorke here again. We originally asked REM to join us at the two Roseland theater shows. First they wanted $75 of the $80 ticket price to go to them. Then the fighting started. It just didn't work out. Today's break-up is a result of what we witnessed. Then, we asked Spin Doctors, and they said they felt morally unjust charging fans $80 for a show. Hats off to you Spin Doctors. Can't wait for that Brooklyn Bowl show.

Annie Clark here, a.k.a. St. Vincent. Look, I know I write terribly bland music, and the only reason I got a huge record deal and people come to my shows is because you all think I'm pretty hot looking. Chris Barron isn't hot at all, but his music inspires me to try and be better. I recognize I can never be as good as Spin Doctors, and at least they made it big because of their music. I for one can't wait for the Pocket Full of Kryptonite tour. The $10 ticket is reason enough to go. Not everyday do big celebrities like Spin Doctors host a show for such a reasonable price.

In a town full of shady plans
To get rid of the cops
It smokes her out

Chris Barron lives with a broken plan
A cracked Kryptonite man
Who just crumbles and burns
He used to do regurgitation
For hippies in the eighties
But tranquility always wins
It wears him out

She looks like the haggard thing
She tastes like the fishy thing
My fake ganja
But I can't help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and exhale

Guys, there will be a trail of kryptonite dispersed in NYC on Saturday leading to a secret location where the Spin Doctors will unveil Pocket Full of Kryptonite 2: The Pocket Dont Stop Da Rockin. Any of those in line at SNL to see Radiohead are suckers

Just checked in to see what the Spin Doctors dude is up to. Some decent output, but it seems his passion for the whole Spins thing is waning. Could he be getting ready to move on? I certainly hope not for he is a shining beacon of pure fandom the likes of which are rarely seen. And if the Spins dude is in fact a woman, how you doin'?

There is no spin doctors dude. We are legion.

@ 923 Look around you. 1 out of every 4 ppl that you see right now is a spin doctors fan and is waiting anxiously for the day the tickets for the Oct 23rd show at brooklyn bowl go on sale. Yes, there will be beards, yes there will be kids with elephantitis of the balls, there will be cowshirts, and there will be leg kicks.

Posted by Anonymous | September 22, 2011 9:50 AM

Well then there should be no problem getting the comments on this page over 1,000. Anything less from the legion would be an admission of their flagging Spin love. Have at it.

The love has been burning within us all since the release of the multi platinum smash hit album Pocket Full of Kryptonite. Ever since its release, we have all walked to the beat of this record

I just saw an autographed copy of Spin Doctors legendary album Pocket Full of Kryptonite on amazon. This will surely break the all-time record for highest selling price ever. It takes The Spins do achieve greatness!

So, I've been revisiting this thread every now and then, and I've begun to pickup on a somewhat disturbing tone. There seem to be a lot of commenters here who are using methods of sarcasm and hyperbole to mock the Spin Doctors. Since BV is notorious for haters and hucksters alike, it stands to reason that many of these comments are facetious. I hope all of you jokesters and fair-weather Spin Doctors fans stay home on 10/23. Where were you when the Spin Doctors struggled with sales of their sophomore album in '94? Where were you when Chris Barron really needed a hand? That's what I thought.

So if you're planning on going to the Brooklyn Bowl to drunkenly sing along to the two radio hits, do us real fans a favor and JUST STAY HOME. The Spin Doctors don't need your kind.

Spin Doctors show at Brooklyn Bowl has all you can drink. I already bought my plane ticket, so unfortunately I'll be drunk and singing along to the two radio hits. Can't wait. Even bought a spotted cow Spin Doctors shirt.

The real question is who is the hot babe in that video? Can we get a name or a 'where are they now?'

I heard Chris Barron nailed her so hard she can barely walk now.

Spin Doctors should dedicate their live performance of Little Miss Can't Be Wrong to whoever the sick person is that wrote that.

Posted by Anonymous | September 22, 2011 12:14 PM

you know why i like girls in wheelchairs, cause when im sick of her yelling at me, i just go upstairs

Posted by Anonymous | September 22, 2011 12:19 PM

she might be Little Miss Cant Be Wrong. But shes not Little Miss Can Wheelchair Up the Stairs

Posted by Anonymous | September 22, 2011 12:27 PM

i'd say just push her down the stairs.

Chris Barron here, lead singer of Spin Doctors. I met Thom Yorke last night, or actually I should say Thom Yorke met me. He was wearing a spotted cow Spin Doctors shirt, and blew my mind with his own personal mash up / remix of Little Miss Can't Be Wrong with Two Princes. He wrote on the CD "Thom Yorke's mash up Little Two Misses Can Be right." It's pretty good.

Posted by Chris Barron | September 22, 2011 1:08 PM

Members of Radiohead will definitely be at the Spin Doctors show at Brooklyn Bowl. Thom Yorke & Johnny Greenwood might even sit in on a Spin Doctors song together during the encore. Thom will be doing guest vocals as well on the radio hits like Two Princes.

Thom married the wheelchair lady and they have two little wheelchair kids today. its cute, they also have lazy eyes

Spent Doctors spent money on Spin Doctors Pocket Full of Kryptonite today, didn't you? That's why you are proclaiming that you spent it so many times!!! Congrats, that album is legendary.

Those who got through waste - what time did you make the purchase? I've not been able to put them in my basket?

Posted by Brettt | September 23, 2011 10:27 AM

@1036 within the first 5 seconds of the 10:08am onsale time? this whole thing seems like bullshit

Posted by Anonymous | September 23, 2011 10:36 AM

i am being 100% honest. my confirmation email has the time on it, and it says 10:08. i have been refreshing since 4 am this morning. persistence paid in this case.

Posted by Anonymous | September 23, 2011 10:38 AM

@1038 so redact all important info and post an image of your confirmation email to the comments section. put this all to rest

Posted by Anonymous | September 23, 2011 10:39 AM

Radiohead regularly does on sales like this on WASTE. Word from 2 friends, they had the ability to put a ticket in the basket just after 10, but could not get them. I noticed at 10:07, but had no ability to put anything in the basket. Odds are it was only a couple of hundred tickets & they were all gone in the first 2 minutes...Of course I would keep trying though until the link is gone (reasonably timeframe of course).

Posted by Brettt | September 23, 2011 10:40 AM

my order came out to 143 for the 2 tickets. if you dont believe me, go check out the radiohead message board. people are talking about it on there. i would keep trying all day though until the buttons disappear, im sure there will be some canceled orders.

Posted by Anonymous | September 23, 2011 10:43 AM

holy shit!!! i was able to get past the buy tickets for thursday but i was not able to buy them. now it says PRESALE AlLOCATION SOLD OUT. fuck my face.

On at 10am on the dot, 3 min wait, then ticked up to 14 min and then counted down to nothing available.Tried for a while in the fruitless hope something might come up.Giving up.

i fucking hate ticketmaster.

Fucking pimps, uh, ticketbrokers had all the tickets on ebay the whole weekend for $500 each (ticketsnow had them too). How is this not illegal?
Oh, now they are $1,300 each. Real fans get shit and douchebag industry VIPs will get these tickets while not knowing any of the songs. #$%!

Posted by Sarah | September 26, 2011 10:52 AM

I was on ticketmaster at 10:01, and it sold out! What a shame... not only does the music industry suck, but going to a live show is also a joke.

Posted by Anonymous | September 26, 2011 2:11 PM

i had 4 different people trying to get me these tickets. i was refreshing the page from 9:50am until 10 just to get a wait time of 14 minutes off the bat. insane that i couldn't get anything.
