According to a rumor from Gawker, Radiohead is supposedly playing a free concert for the Occupy Wall Street protesters.

A press conference is currently in progress to try and work out more details, but according to the official Occupy Wall Street website, the band will be appearing for a performance at 4:00

UPDATE 12:19 p.m.: A spokesperson for Occupy Wall Street confirms “Radiohead will play a surprise show today at four in the afternoon. Press conference at one in the afternoon.”

Update 12:54 p.m.: The spokesperson tells Gawker they have no permit but the police are “aware” of the event. This is going to be interesting—a band with Radiohead’s popularity can easily draw a hundred thousand for a free show in New York City. You need permits for this sort of thing, and there, obviously, there are a lot of crowd control issues that are worked out in advance.
