Radiohead has been adding archival footage to the band's official YouTube page for over a year now and the band just announced a continuation of the project.
The first installment of the band's streaming series back in April 2020 was "Live From a Tent In Dublin" — footage from a show they played at Punchestown Racecourse in Naas, Ireland, shortly after releasing Kid A in October 2000.
For the second installment, Radiohead will head to 2008 with footage of their intimate and impromptu 93 Feet East gig in London. Fans can start streaming the show on Friday starting at 3 pm ET/ 12 pm PT.
“We rummaged in the Radiohead Public Library and found a few more concerts from a life we all yearn to return to. Thanks to science and the vaccines, we are a step closer to that,” bassist Colin Greenwood wrote on Twitter.

Radiohead will also release a set of new T-shirt designs to commemorate the project and proceeds will go to organizations helping out road crews impacted by the pandemic. You can grab one (or all of them) here for $35.
“To recognise the hard work of crew everywhere who make live shows happen, we have remade some Stanley Donwood designed crew T-shirts, proceeds of which will go to various crew support charities,” the band posted on social media. “The stylish colours represent the different jobs on tour - lights, video, audio, riggers, pushers, backline. Pick your team!”
