I will be volunteering with 350.org at today’s Radiohead show in Toronto.

If you are attending the concert and want more information on what you can do to help with climate change, please stop by.

I will upload some photos when it’s all done.

The stage at the Radiohead show partly collapsed, perhaps due to a fairly light wind.

It seems the show is cancelled.

Several people were on the stage at the time, preparing for the show, when the scaffolding-like material collapsed from about 50 feet overhead, sending crew members fleeing.

Authorities said Saturday that one man was pinned and killed. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

On Sunday, the representative identified the man as Scott Johnson, a drum tech for the band. Drum techs are responsible for a band’s drums and other percussion equipment.

Another man who suffered serious injuries was taken to a Toronto hospital, but authorities said Saturday that his head injury was not life-threatening. Two other men with minor injuries were assessed and released.
