On Jan. 24, Radiohead did a surprise benefit gig at the Music Box @ Fonda in Hollywood to raise funds for relief efforts in Haiti following a devastating earthquake. The band, which was in town recording, performed to a sold-out house, and in true Radiohead fashion, allowed concertgoers free reign to video the gig. Inevitably, much of that footage ended up on YouTube, where it’s drawn hundreds of thousands of views.
A trio of fans compiled the best of the footage to re-create the entire concert, and posted it. They explain the project on formengr’s YouTube page:
this was a benefit for Oxfam America’s Haiti Earthquake Response Fund. we who assembled this multicam video received approval and support from both Radiohead and Oxfam. on our combined behalf, we kindly request a donation to the beneficiary fund for which Oxfam graciously created the following dedicated link: www.oxfamamerica.org/radiohead
Below is the video they compiled, all two hours and 4 minutes of it.
