Radiohead played two shows at the Roseland Ballroom this week as part of their surprise visit to New York City and debuted a two-ticket-max, will-call-only policy that resulted in a line of 3,000 people stretching around the block at Roseland. The policy also spawned the “can I be your +1” legion of pan-handling refugees on the outskirts of the line with their homemade cardboard signs and index fingers in the air, lightly begging for extra tickets. As if hearing their plea, it was confirmed on Friday that Radiohead would play a free show for the activists at the Occupy Wall Street demonstration. Word spread like wildfire across the Internet before everyone’s hopes were dashed when Radiohead’s publicist tweeted that the band would actually not be playing Wall St.
