Just received a missive from Nasty Little Man, Radiohead's dutiful PR firm, with the words, "RADIOHEAD AUGUST 2008 DATES & VENUES CONFIRMED," in the subject line. My heart raced a bit, I'll admit it, as I scrolled down... but alas, it then flatlined. Again. Still no Denver date. What are we, chopped fucking liver here? Auburn, Washington? Check. Mansfield, Mass? Check. Hell, even Indianapolis is on the itenerary. What the hell, Thom? Is it something we said?
