It's pretty rare when you get to see Radiohead's Thom Yorke pop a smile. But during the band's Wednesday night show in Berkeley’s Greek Theatre, they wheeled out the hijinks, causing Yorke to grin a little.

Radiohead were about to launch into “Giving Up the Ghost” when Yorke looked like he was having technical difficulties. "Oh shit," he muttered. The loop pedal seemed to be on, perhaps the doing of bandmate Johnny Greenwood. After Yorke called him over in confusion, Greenwood kept the "Oh shit," which has been recorded on the loop, playing. 

It wasn't exactly the technical mishap of Coachella 2017. Instead, it was all in good fun, and it gave Radiohead fans a rare moments of laughter.
