Everyone's favorite critical darlings Radiohead are embarking on a US tour in a few months. Where will they be playing their unique blend of Britpop and ambient electronica? Tampa, among other places. Where will they not be playing their unique blend of Britpop and ambient electronica? Portland. Why? Possibly because one certain local resident wrote what could be the only negative words in existence regarding their new album.
Yeah, I blame myself. Ok, not really but this a slap in the face, especially since the band opted to play in Auburn, Washington on their 2003 tour instead of Portland. Auburn now Tampa. That hurts. What's next? A date on a future tour in Kelso instead of the Keller Auditorium?
94.7 FM's "Alternative Mornings" host Greg Glover is trying to rectify this presumed oversight by petitioning the band's guitarist. It may do some good, it may not but here's the link. I sent off an email myself. It's the least I could do but I still think In Rainbows is incredibly overrated.
