Radiohead for Haiti

Radiohead held an impromptu concert to raise money for Haiti last January and have now released the 'DVD' for a free download.  Like In Rainbows, the offering is technically free with a request to support Oxfam America to 'pay' for the DVD.  Though it is certainly raw (Thom Yorke asks for forgiveness from the crowd as they are in the album recording mentality), there is something rare about seeing the guys playing some of their best tracks (Exit Music, How to Disappear Completely, Paranoid Android, Fake Plastic Trees) with little preparation.

This is a must watch for a Radiohead fan.

If you want to save the download, here is the concert in its entirety via YouTube:
