It usually takes a pretty good bill to draw me all the way up north to the Belly Up Tavern, and well, I couldn’t really ask for a better one than this.
San Diego’s own Boomsnake opened the show early.
Then Thao with the Get Down Stay Down took the stage, and never. stopped. moving. They always put on an incredibly fun and infectious show, and it’s inevitable that you have their music stuck in your head for days afterwards.
And then came the Thermals, one of my favorite bands. They played fast and furious and nailed every song – even when they had to pull a Fugazi and stop in the middle of “Here’s Your Future” to break up a one-man attempted mosh pit.
