Radiohead at Santa Barbara Bowl

April 12, 2012

MUSIC

Radiohead's "The King of Limbs," which was abruptly made available for download via the band's website, can be heard from several different angles. Fans and critics have already been registering wildly divergent reactions: Some think it's one of the band's best efforts; others find it too low-key or similar to previous work; a few consider it awfully doomy, and a few others wish it were less abstract. The stature and skill of this band allow for so many interpretations that even a decisively unpretentious work like this one sends listeners wide to find its headwaters. Santa Barbara Bowl, 1122 N. Milpas St., Santa Barbara. 6:30 p.m. Thu. $74.50-$79.50. sbbowl.com.
