Radiohead comes to Atlanta

Today, rock 'n' roll sacred cow Radiohead cryptically announced the cities that will be blessed by its presence on its upcoming In Rainbows tour. And one of those towns includes Atlanta. There were no dates or venues mentioned, just the names of the cities. How lovely.

As you can tell by my sarcastic tone, I've never been a huge Radiohead fan. I think the band's albums are OK, but it's just never been my type of critical fruitcake, I guess. But the band puts on a mind-blowing live concert. I saw the band back in 2004 on its Hail to the Thief tour, and it was utterly amazing, one of the best arena shows I have ever seen. In fact, I had sworn off arena shows for many years, writing them off as impersonal and alienating, but Radiohead reconverted me to the experience of hearing great music amid a sea of thousands.

So yeah, when Radiohead finally announces a show date and venue, and if you can get yourself a ticket, then you should definitely go.
