Portland’s finest indie-pop-punk trio The Thermals descend upon the Tower Theatre in Bend tonight to provide the venerable downtown venue with what may be its most rocking performance ever. (Read our interview with bassist Kathy Foster here.)
The band’s 2004 album “F–kin A” (sorry, it’s a family blog) is one of my favorite records of the 2000s, though I will admit I’ve been less enamored with each of their past three releases. That said, “Personal Life,” their new one that came out yesterday, sounds to me like their best work in years. Some folks agree, and some don’t.
All that said, I do believe the band’s core duo, Foster and Hutch Harris, created two of the very best songs of the past decade, and I sure hope we hear them tonight! Take a listen …
How about you? Which Thermals song would you like to hear tonight?
