Thom Yorke’s Atoms For Peace will perform at the Patriot Center in September

When Radiohead's Thom Yorke began collaborating with bassist Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and producer Nigel Godrich on a project called Atoms for Peace in late 2009, critics raised their eyebrows. Yet despite the notorious failures of so many ill-advised supergroups (Oysterhead, anyone?), the recently released Atoms For Peace debut, "Amok," was (mostly) a success, filled with Yorke's paranoid vocals and skittering beats.

Atoms For Peace, courtesy of XL Recordings, is Thom Yorke, Flea, Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker (of Beck & R.E.M.) and Mauro Refosco.

D.C. area fans will have a chance to see the group's stage up close when the band performs at the Patriot Center on Sept. 30. Tickets ($39-$59) go on sale Saturday, March 23, at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.
