Thrice at Showbox at the Market
I think I might have been one of approximately five people in the world (rough estimate, y’know) who have never witnessed Thrice in all of their glory, and I’m probably one of an even smaller number who have never listened to one of their albums. Go ahead, judge me. I’m judging myself after going to see this tour. Needless to say, I had not a clue as to what to expect.
I will say though, my drawing factor was La Dispute and Moving Mountains. I was interested in seeing how La Dispute would fit into this bill. O’Brother and Moving Mountains have the jam band quality that I adore, with Moving Mountains’ frontman Gregory Dunn possessing a scream similar to Thrice’s Dustin Kensrue, bringing the three bands together quite harmoniously. Even if La Dispute didn’t quite fit into that, they brought a different style that enabled them to stand out and still get people moving.
