The Thermals at Lincoln Hall 4/20

I don’t have time to write much this morning. Yesterday I woke up to see a tweet from Hutch saying that The Thermals were playing every song off The Body The Blood The Machine during this tour and I got crazy excited because I was already planning to go. The band is in a kind of renaissance with their last two record both being exceptional, but TBTBTM is one of my favorite albums of all-time.

The crowd was surprisingly docile for the majority of the show. That all changed during the encore that featured “Returning To The Fold” and “Pillar Of Salt.” Someone spilled beer on me and a fella in a lucha libre mask tried to crowdsurf. Hutch’s vocals were pretty drowned out for most of the show, but everyone around me knew every word so we just kinda yelled to make up for it.

Summer Cannibals opened with a great set. I’ll have photos of them up later today or tomorrow.

    Very nice review, I agree that the crowd was quiet. I think that had something to do with Hutch not playing much guitar. He did a lot more standing than he did jumping. Still always a great act to see.

      Definitely agree he was a bit more “showman” than rocker. Maybe it has something to do with his newfound love of stand-up.
