"I think [Radiohead have] lost the plot," Kubler said

The Hold Steady

Hold Steady guitarist Tad Kubler has caused the Internet to go nuts with his comments on Radiohead, which he made over the weekend to BBC6 Music. "I think they've lost the plot," Kubler said when asked the now-standard-in-every-music-interview question about Thom Yorke et al's recent album In Rainbows. "What are they doing? Where are they going? What's happening? I don't get it any more. They lost me. I still appreciate what they're doing, or what they're trying to do. But I think they're trying too hard not to be Radiohead. That seems a little ridiculous to me." Kubler then went on to praise... Oasis. Ooh, burn! Yorke and his bandmates were unavailable for comment, but the Internet was more than happy to rush in and fill that particular void... [Idolator]

The tour is called the "Rock and Roll Means Well Tour". The bands are The Hold Steady and Drive By Truckers. It's a great bill, but I think there should be plenty of NYC tickets to go around since the NYC shows are at Terminal 5 (a venue both bands have played before) two nights in a row (Nov 6 & 7). That said, tickets go on presale Tuesday. All dates for both bands (with and without each other) below...
