Karma police, arrest these bands

Radiohead's politically charged, gossamer rock has inspired the Thom Yorkes of South Florida to put together a tribute to the English band.

At 9 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20, Churchill's Pub in Miami will host four local acts who will render their versions of essential Radiohead tracks, such as "Karma Police," "2+2=5" and the band's debut single, "Creep."

The show is called "I Don't Belong Here: Tribute to Radiohead" after the verse in that breakthrough single. "Creep" may be Radiohead's best-known song, but the band's style has evolved in the past two decades, from distortion-laden alternative love-rock to experimental, ambient music with unintelligible vocals.

The locals onstage, including punk tribute band F--- Yeah! and solo electronic act Patternapparatus, will cover the span of Radiohead's evolution. Cory James of Patternapparatus incorporates his electric guitar-playing into synth-based jams, creating an introspective progression reminiscent of Radiohead's "Reckoner," off 2008's "In Rainbows."

But "Creep" was released as a single in 1992, and F--- Yeah! is set to play it and other songs from that alt-rock era at the tribute, just months after the song's 20th anniversary.

Doors will open at 8 p.m. Admission is $5. Go to
