Watch Thom Yorke & Jonny Greenwood’s new group The Smile make their debut on Glastonbury livestream
UPDATE 2: The free stream has been taken down but there are ticket options today.
UPDATE: After technical difficulties, Glastonbury opened the stream to the public. Watch here.
There's no Glastonbury this year due to COVID, but organizers have put together a very cool livestream event, Live at Worthy Farm, that happens today starting at 7 PM in various time zones. (The earliest to watch is Greenwich time which is 2 PM Eastern.) Just added to the lineup is The Smile -- aka Radiohead's Thom Yorke & Jonny Greenwood with drummer Tom Skinner (Sons of Kemet)-- who will "be performing a first ever set of new, original music."
UPDATE: The Smile sound pretty great, not that different than Radiohead, but leaner, more stripped down, mainly just guitar, bass, drums and Fender Rhodes. They played eight songs and have shared a "We Don't Know What Tomorrow Brings" and "Thin Thing" from the performance:
