Theater archives



Though they’ve been shaking up the alt-rock scene since the early aughts, TV on the Radio really hit their breakthrough in 2006 with the release of the universally acclaimed Return to Cookie Mountain. Led by the epic single “Wolf Like Me,” the album ushered in a new era of NYC indie. Prior to this year’s Seeds, out the same day as their Apollo Theater show, TV on the Radio had been off the musical radar since 2011’s Nine Types of Light; their break may have been slightly encouraged by the tragic death of bassist Gerard Smith. Following a few years of grieving, and with the memory of their beloved bandmate still lingering in all they do, TV on the Radio are back and as eviscerating as ever, showcased by the LP’s lead single, “Happy Idiot.”
