The attack took place Friday at Velvet IndieGround, a Turkish record shop that was hosting the only Radiohead album release party in the entire country. It was captured on Periscope and later uploaded to YouTube.

Fans had been listening to Radiohead's new album A Moon Shaped Pool in the store when a group of men suddenly stormed in, attacking customers and employees.

The attackers were apparently angry that people had been listening to music and consuming alcohol during Islam's holy month of Ramadan.

No one was killed in the attack, but some people sustained injuries including a bloodied head after one fan was hit in the face with a bottle.

A witness at the event, claiming to be one of the store's owners, recounted the horrifying ordeal:
