the thrizz and the trooper

Thrice played an amazing show at Stubb’s BBQ on April 23rd. Their next two volumes of The Alchemy Index was released the day before, and the set they played a great selection from their three latest albums: The Artist in the Ambulance, Vheissu, and The Alchemy Index.

I was being a total shutterbug at the show. This was something like my tenth time to see them live. I stopped counting a while back. I first saw them back when they were promoting The Illusion of Safety, their second record released on Sub City Records.

I had a better picture similar to this one, but I couldn’t help but post this one up due to the heaven light interrupted by Teppei shredding.

Again, I had a better picture of Eddie but check out the awesome light pattern on the left!

This was one of the better pictures taken with my DSC-T33. The camera really dislikes low-lit scenery and rapid movement. Fortunately, this one isn’t too out-of-focus since they were playing one of their calmer songs.

Dustin plays acoustic during one of the songs on the Earth record.

They played Stare at the Sun, Deadbolt, and The Earth Will Shake as their encore songs. We were disappointed that they’ve abandoned their faster, heavier songs like To Awake and Avenge the Dead but I’m sure they’ve grown out of the whole punk/metal hybrid not to mention that so many bands have given that style of music a bad name. Nonetheless, they played an excellent set that made the highlight of that week.
