City Paper is not for tourists
Radiohead, those masters of head-scratching decisions, released a “newspaper” today—-though it won’t be available in D.C. until tomorrow at 1 p.m. It’s called The Universal Sigh, and it’s a collection of odd images and abstract verse, intended to supplement the band’s newest album, The King Of Limbs. The paper showed up today at various locations around the globe, and there are two spots you’ll be able to find it here in D.C tomorrow. It’s unclear how many copies are available, but according to the Universal Sigh’s website (which seems to be having trouble handling all the traffic its receiving), those interested in the free faux tabloid should head to either the intersection of Jefferson and 7th streets NW or to Union Station. If you find one, be sure to register your impression on Twitter, as the band’s website is aggregating tweets with the hashtag #TheUniversalSigh.
It looks like Thom Yorke handed out the paper personally in London today; perhaps he’ll make an appearance in the states tomorrow?
UPDATE: Radiohead might be confused about D.C. geography!
