Win two tickets to see The Thermals in Bend!

Monday, August 23rd, 2010, 1:34 pm by Ben Salmon

Cool: Below is the new video for “I Don’t Believe You” from “Personal Life,” the upcoming album from Portland indie-pop-punk idols The Thermals. It’s a fun clip that stars Carrie Brownstein, she of NPR’s highly readable Monitor Mix blog (when she’s not taking a break from it, as she is now) and a certain trail-blazing rawk trio from the Northwest. Oh, and there’s a very quick cameo at the very end by another well-known Northwest rocker.

Cooler: The Thermals will release “Personal Life” on Sept. 7, although you can get an instant download and some free stuff if you pre-order it now from Kill Rock Stars.

Coolest: On Sept. 8, exactly one day after their new album drops, The Thermals will play the Tower Theatre in Bend as part of the PDXchange Program. Speaking of which …

ICE COLD: We’re giving away two tickets to see The Thermals in Bend! All you have to do is be the first person to leave a comment below identifying that guy in the last six seconds of the video AND tell me your favorite Thermals song, and they’re yours. (You’ll need to be able to pick your tickets up at The Bulletin in Bend. Be sure to leave a real e-mail address so I can get in touch with you.)

Ready … GO!

    Nice video. Is that Nick Harmer from Death Cab? Favorite song is “Now we can see”.

  5. Ben Salmon says:

    Heather: Glad you’re excited! The Autonomics rule.

    Drexell: Good guess, but nope.

    Chris: Good guess, but nope.

    Both of you are halfway there, feel free to guess again on the other half.

    Is it Isaac Brock?

  7. Sho Sho says:

    It was my hint that did it, wasn’t it???

  8. Goo says:

    Well, I’m a little late on this one – congrats Heather. I did watch the video anyway because The Thermals make a good video and I’m always up for some trivia.

    I hope that one day Isaac Brock wakes up and heads to the studio to make another album as good as The Moon and Antarctica.
