Since Thursday was unable to do a proper farewell tour in the UK, frontman Geoff Rickly will be performing several Thursday songs solo as part of the 2014 Acoustic Basement UK Tour. Watch a video announcement in the replies, which features a clip of a cool electronic version of "Understanding in a Car Crash."
The show he did in Philly with Lukas Previn was awesome:
This Side of Brightness
Cross Out the Eyes
Standing on the Edge of Summer
Signals Over the Air
How Long is the Night?
Your Love's a Pawn Shop
Resuscitation of a Deadman
Understanding in a Car Crash
War All the Time
Since then, he's been pretty spotty and constantly does this atrocious Usher cover.
Seeing Geoff solo was one of the greatest things I had ever seen. It was amazing.
Seriously though. United Nations played one of a few pre-Fest shows in Ybor, then he went across the street to play a solo set. He didn't have a pick on him to play his set, and I miraculously had one in my pocket from a band practice prior. He played some of my all time favorite Thursday songs, and now that pick is hanging from my rearview mirror. He kept cracking up because my friend and I were singing all of the back up vocal parts. One of the best nights of my life.
