The protesters say the band will stage a surprise show at four o'clock without a permit, although police are apparently "aware." There goes the "media blackout." Update: Or not. A Radiohead spokesperson "can officially say it's not happening," which could either be to throw people off the scent or mean the whole thing was a publicity stunt. If it's the latter, mission accomplished. Update 2: The protesters are now confirming that the band is not playing, claiming that they were "hoaxed." Radiohead, meanwhile, wish them "the best of luck."[Occupy Wall Street]
