Only everyone who's anyone is going to this weekend's Radiohead show at Starplex.

But before you do, you might want to read this blog statement from the band. And maybe this press release from the band's publicist, which urges show attendees to "consider methods of travel to upcoming shows":

"Last year, the band commissioned carbon footprint analysts Best Foot Forward to calculate the carbon generated on their two previous US tours. The report showed that fans' travel to and from the shows accounted for the greatest proportion of the CO2 generated during each tour, something now widely accepted across the industry. Following the report's recommendations, Radiohead are encouraging fans to consider public transport where available, or increased carpooling for shows outside city centers."

Too bad DART's (isn't this ironic...) Green Line's a ways off, huh?

On the brighter side, I, at least, feel greener just for having told you.

In other news, if you're already amped up over the show and you need something to tide you over, you can check out this slideshow of photos from Radiohead's St. Louis show, courtesy of our sister paper, Riverfront Times. --Pete Freedman

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
