Another Midtown Tent City Emerges, And This Time It's Full Of Radiohead Fans

Last May the season finale of

Saturday Night Live

was prefaced by Lady Gaga fans

setting up a mini-campsite in the middle of Rockefeller Center

so they could get the chance to see their heroine perform on the show. Not to be outdone by silly fans of

pop music

, a bunch of Radiohead fans have also started a vigil of their own in anticipation of the band performing on tonight's Alec Baldwin-hosted season premiere; in the video above, you can see them lined up in last night's drizzle, talking about "a


of advertising" and prepping for campfire moan-alongs to tracks from

The King Of Limbs

. (Be sure to peep the guy getting creative with mail crates at the 0:30 mark.) Two questions come to mind: First, did Radiohead

send over any pizzas yet

, and two, I wonder how many citizens of this temporary neighborhood set up their web browsers so they'd be

pointed at the correct Ticketmaster page

on Monday morning before they left their houses? [via
