Before Radiohead's Return in March, Revisiting Two Earlier Local Shows From 1998 and '08

I see over on DC9 we've noted the latest bit of breaking Radiohead news: The band's coming back to town March 5, this time at the American Airlines Center. Tix go on sale Wednesday. Nick's got further details concerning the show, among the first announced on the forthcoming U.S. tour; long story short, no "hits" this go-round. Which reminds me:

I've had this sitting around since forever, a weekend-listening post never posted: Courtesy Radiohead Not For Profit, the band's last stop through town, at Starplex on May 18, 2008. (I wound up road-tripping to the Houston show the night before; seemed like something to do.) And for those with deeper memories, and a love for the lossless show: Radiohead's epic appearance at the Fair Park Music Hall, with Spiritualized, on March 29, 1998 -- historic, if only because it marked the first full-band performance of "Nude."
