Before I die, I MUST hear Sit Down Stand Up live. When I saw them right after In Rainbows came out it started raining during the end of their set and I was fucking praying to every god in the universe that they would play it so I could sing THE RAINDROPS THE RAINDROPS THE RAINDROPS THE RAINDROPS THE RAINDROPS THE RAINDROPS THE RAINDROPS THE RAINDROPS THE RAINDROPS THE RAINDROPS
Hail to the Thief Kid A The King of Limbs In Rainbows Amnesiac OK Computer The Bends Pablo Honey
Although everything up to and including OK Computer would be in my top 50 albums and those ones (other than Hail to the Thief) are pretty much interchangeable. The Bends has some good songs and I never really listen to Pablo Honey much at all.
I was at that show, it was such a great setlist and a great show. The thing that ruined it for me though was the fact that I was in the seats and there was this lesbian couple sitting next to my wife and me that didn't know how to enjoy the show. We kept trying to stand up the whole show because almost everyone else was, and they kept yelling at us to "sit the fuck down". We weren't even in front of them we were next to them??? My wife was pretty plastered and almost got in a fight with one of them. It kind of ruined my first Radiohead concert experience. I will never go back to that amphitheatre unless I have floor tickets.
Haha funny you say that, because EVERYONE on the hill was standing and all I wanted to do was sit down. I usually enjoy standing at shows but that hill is at such an awkward angle for you legs and ankles that it starts to become very uncomfortable to stand on after a while. Still an absolutely phenomenal show though. I need to see if I can find the setlist somewhere online.

We were going to go to the one in WA but it was way bad weather and on a Thursday, and like HG said, that girl we were going to go with is sexually crazy. While I wanted to see Radiohead again so bad, it just was not worth it in that instance. I saw them in Salem in 1998 and it was incredible.
