It's Radiohead month in Tampa!
We're sure we're not the only music fans in Tampa Bay who are losing their collective minds about Radiohead performing at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Feb. 29. (Leap Day! We still can't get over that!)
So we've decided to declare February Radiohead Month on Soundcheck. (We know, we're a day late. We were too excited yesterday to post anything.)
All month, we're going to share tidbits on Radiohead with you dear readers. Already, Sean Daly has declared Radiohead one of his Top 5 must-see Tampa Bay concerts for February. And yesterday, we named as our Artist of the day Gainesville indie rockers Morningbell. Just like the song!
We promise not to clog up Soundcheck TOO much with our Radiohead obsession. But over on Soundcheck's Twitter page, all bets are off. We'll be tweeting about Radiohead all throughout February, with the hashtag #radioheadmonth. If you've got any Radiohead-related thoughts you want to share with us, meet us there, and hashtag it up.
One experiment we plan to conduct: We're going to try to listen to the group's latest album, The King of Limbs, every single day in February, just to see what happens. It's a very challenging album, and we've decided that we want to let ourselves be challenged. Maybe by the time Feb. 29 rolls around, we'll appreciate it as much as we do OK Computer or In Rainbows. (Hey, stranger things have happened.)
And if you don't like Radiohead, if you find them overrated and unbearably arty ... well, we'll see you on March 1.
