That Understanding clip at the end sounded terrible.

The show he did in Philly with Lukas Previn was awesome:

This Side of Brightness
Time's Arrow
Cross Out the Eyes
Standing on the Edge of Summer
Signals Over the Air
Lady Love
How Long is the Night?
Your Love's a Pawn Shop
Resuscitation of a Deadman
Understanding in a Car Crash
War All the Time
Turnpike Divides

Since then, he's been pretty spotty and constantly does this atrocious Usher cover.

I've periodically read that Thursday is "on hiatus" and not fully broken up, but he really makes it sound like they're done for good here.

Seeing Geoff solo was one of the saddest things I have ever seen. It was cringe-worthy.

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.
