This weekend, I was originally supposed to catch a movie with friends. Unfortunately, right when the movie was starting, I had a nasty headache. So I took a lot of advil, napped for an hour, then woke up feeling better. As the move was already happening, I instead trekked to the Middle East Upstairs to catch a band with my friend Brian. His friends, Thick As Thieves, were playing a show.
They were quite good. Lots of energy, and catchy songs. They reminded me a lot of The Who, especially at the end of their set. The frontman, Tyler, even stood on top of a drum for awhile. So hats off to them for a great show.
Here's a video I found of them on Youtube singing their song, The Octopus:
If you ever get the chance to see them perform in the future, do it. Some of them will be playing with Oranjuly in March.
PS, that's one hell of a facial expression in the video before you click on it.
