Atoms for Peace, the semi-Los Angeles-based rhythm band featuring Thom Yorke of Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers' bassist Flea, drummer Joey Waronker, percussionist Mauro Refosco and producer/Ultraista co-founder Nigel Godrich, has announced some details of Friday night's secret show in Los Angeles. 

The band, which will play a big show at the Hollywood Bowl later this fall as part of its Club Amok tour, will gig at a yet-undisclosed location, one that will be revealed with the purchase of tickets. The tour officially starts in Paris on July 6 and wends its way across Europe, America and Asia over the course of the summer. In addition to the Bowl show on Oct. 16, the band plays the Santa Barbara Bowl on Oct. 17.
