    Was at the first of their 3 gigs in the smallish but excellent new venue called “Magazine”, close to the O2 London, last night.

    Great to see Thom, Jonny, from Radiohead & Tom Skinner, at their 1st ever live gig. They played 14 original tracks, some of which were played at the virtual Glastonbury event last summer.

    They streamed the 3 gigs, about 1200 attendees at each ,in a very intimate- in the round setup, new album is finished and should be out soon, a taster here:

    Euro Tour announced today, but no Dublin gig. Considering The Roundhouse, London, its a lovely old venue.

    This announcement really confirms, that there will not be any Radiohead activity for a long while, if, at all, but so glad Jonny is in the group, its the first time Thom has gone out with another Radiohead member, which has edged the project, towards being the most Radiohead’ish project, of the many Thom has been involved with.

    The email said "more shows for The Smile will be announced in due course"

    Guessing it's still a long shot we'll get a Dublin gig, but fingers crossed

    Its a very longshot, the logistical obvious route, is Manchester->Dublin> Belfast-> Glasgow, kind of route.

    I’d say we do have a chance of seeing them at a festival here, as they start doing them from late June, maybe EP, if were lucky.

    I’ve seen most of my Radiohead/Atoms For Peace in the UK, due to their lack of gigs over here, they did not even come here for the King Of Limbs Tour, nor the pre “In Rainbows” tour, so i’l try for Roundhouse i think, its a great venue.
