UPDATE on Radiohead concert rumour
occupywallstreet: This morning, we were alerted to the possibility of Radiohead playing an impromptu show at #OCCUPYWALLSTREET at about 4pm this afternoon. The New York Times’ City Room Blog reports that the band’s spokesperson has said that the band is “definitely not” going to perform at Liberty Plaza, contrary to initial reports.

There was about 400 people at the meeting...
Back from the OccupyPhilly meeting

Not only did I get to meet and network with some of the people I was marching with, but we also got a lot of...
