2012.05.10 Thursday (Thrice Concert)

Took a good amount of effort to get out of bed today.  Not sure why, but I felt pretty exhausted.  Must have been a culmination of the week up to now.

Good way to wrap up the work week though.  Smooth sailing, productive with least interruptions.  The weather is still a bit gloomy though.

Off to the new Emo's East to see the Thrice concert.  The roads and weather was pretty bad, then parking sucked.  They have some huge parking lots surrounding the place, right off of Riverside, but most parking lots will tow unless you are there to shop at their stores.  We had to park pretty far away, on some dark road.  This show was part of their Farewell tour. Wait...what?  Pulled out the smartphone... woah, they put out a new album without me knowing.  This is the second time this has happened to me.  They played songs from all over their repertoire. They also left the stage a couple times, but came back twice: double encore.

Back home, I looked up some more about this farewell tour.  Sounds like they are indeed taking at least a  long break after this tour, if not just being "done" with Thrice.  They are starting and ending with a series of shows in California, their home and strongest following.  I'm not sure how I feel about this being the end.

Then sleep.
