When Thursday broke up, we finished playing all the shows that we had booked(we wanted to honor all of our obligations) but we never booked a farewell tour because none of us were interested in making a big deal about the band ending. Thursday was the best thing that I've ever been a part of and I'd never try to cash in on it. This Dallas show sounded like a fun event that was part of a series. The Philly show was a free "warm up" since I've never played an acoustic set before. It's a fun challenge for me.
All of the members have gone on to new things(I'm writing for a bunch of different projects, including tv and film work) and we are so appreciative that we had such a long and loving relationship with the people who listened to Thursday.
Hey, Geoff. Thanks for the explanation, it's appreciated all around. This is unrelated, but I saw a few of your blog posts awhile back. Where can I find more if any exist?
And thank you for Thursday. Thank you thank you thank you.
