Live Review: The Thermals w/ Unnatural Helpers & White Fang @ Neumo’s 1/21

After attending a show early last week that was said to be sold out on the Neumo’s website, I expected roughly the same volume of people to be at the The Thermals concert last Friday night.

But it still shows the same passionRead more...
