Is Radiohead Trying To Upstage Barack Obama?

A cryptic note about downloading video-conversion players popped up on Radiohead’s site today, and the people over at Hidden Track have interpreted it as a sign that the band will simulcast its Santa Barbara Bowl show this evening. If this is the case, the festivities kick off at 7 p.m. PT/10 p.m. ET–a curious bit of scheduling, given that Barack Obama is scheduled to give his big, historic Presidential nomination acceptance speech at exactly that time. Is Radiohead going to actually provide a score for Obama’s speech and invite users to listen to their computers and their TVs simultaneously, Dusk At Cubist Castle style? Or is something more nefarious afoot, something that will shake the blogging world to its core? [Hidden Track / thanks thomaswheatley]
