The Thrice Farewell Tour is a very sad thing. I don’t even know how to feel about it yet other than extreme gratitude for all the great music they gave us over the years. I am not sure I even have the words just yet. What softens the blow is that they decided to bring O’Brother and Animals As Leaders on the road with them. O’Brother keeps getting better and better. I swear those dudes are like dragons up there. Except instead of spitting fire they’re spitting water and pure awesome. If you’ve been sleeping on O’Brother now is the time to wake up. Get your hands on Garden Window or any of their material really, go see them live -you will not regret it. I finally ended up with that #bangover they’re always talking about. So worth it. Animals As Leaders is one heck of a band. A 3-piece ensemble from Washington D.C. who make music that’s anything but simple. I’ll be at the remaining shows of the tour come headbang and say hello, dates are here -though I think they’re all sold out at this point (cough-stubhub-cough).
