The Easy Star All-Stars — whose new album ‘Radiodread‘ (August 22, Easy
Star Records) is a song-for-song reggae interpretation of Radiohead’s ‘OK
Computer’ — will hit the road for an extensive fall U.S. and will be
appearing at the Tahoe Biltmore ­north shore Tahoe on Monday, October 16 at
9pm.

A 9-piece band, The Easy Star All -Stars will perform songs from
‘Radiodread’ as well as their own original material and cuts from their
popular ‘Dub Side Of The Moon,’ which has spent over three years on
Billboard’s Reggae Chart. Translating ‘Radiodread’ to the stage represents a
remarkable feat for the Easy Star All-Stars, who will perform songs from a
project two years in the making.

The tour comes on the heels of a Village Voice feature; coverage in USA
Today and Pitchfork; even props from Radiohead’s Thom Yorke himself who
talked about Toots & the Maytals rendition of “Let Down” during a recent
Radiohead concert. The Village Voice also singled out that track, calling it
“the original record’s prettiest moment transformed into the ambitious
remake’s most delightfully jarring reinvention.”

The Easy Star All-Stars recently debuted the live version of Radiodread in
its entirety at the All Good Music Festival in West Virginia. Seems as
though the collective made quite an impression. Promoter Robert Tucker says
³The Easy Star All-Star sets at the All Good Festival were quoted by many as
being the most enjoyable music heard all weekend. It definitely made for the
most enthusiastic and overall largest success for any act performing in the
10 years of our early arrival stage on the Thursday night of the event

As individuals, the band¹s vocalists and instrumentalists have toured and
recorded with Gil-Scott-Heron, Burning Spear, Toots and the Maytals, The
Toasters, The Meditations, Bernie Worrell, DJ Logic, MC Solaar, King Django,
Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, The Scofflaws, Diana King, Dennis Brown, Monty
Alexander, Sister Carol, and many others. Each of these musicians gets a
chance to shine in the typical Easy Star set, whether it is through soloing,
composing, or singing, or simply through playing an essential part in this
tight-knit collective. Each line-up may result in slightly different sounds
for this unique reggae band, but regardless of who plays, the one thing that
never changes is that the Easy Star All-Stars deliver a fun, exciting, and
different show every time out.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at Renegadeshows.com, The Tahoe
Biltmore Gift Shop, Jobys, New Moon Natural Foods. For more information and
