In an apparent show of solidarity with John McCain, Sheryl Crow, and the GOP, uppity British space-rock combo Radiohead have just announced on their blog plans to Webcast their concert in Santa Barbara tonight. The last show on their North American tour begins this evening at 10 p.m. EDT, and will likely distract millions of young, progressive voters from Barack Obama’s acceptance speech for the Democratic presidential nomination, scheduled for the exact same time, thereby clinching a Republican victory this November. The band is expected to play hits like “Paranoid Android” and “The Bends” and call for the expansion of offshore oil drilling.
