I strongly disagree with a couple of the above-mentioned statements. Thursday is a solid band both live and on record. Last week, we had the chance to meet them, share the stage with them, and catch their set at the end of the night. I know everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but, at least to me, they were the best band there. They're one of the few bands I can watch play for an hour or more without succumbing to a sore lower back and getting lost in a uniform-sounding set. Since they play music from pretty much all their records, there's so much diversity in the set as well as the obvious passion for their music. Four Year Strong is an awesome band, but, I wouldn't be able to watch them for more than ten to fifteen minutes just because the songs, at least to me, sound the same. Pierce The Veil is also pretty good, but, it's not for me. As for Bring Me The Horizon, their music is garbage. During their set only was when I was security and EMTs rushing into the crowd to pull out injured kids. Obviously, the band doesn't have control over the audience, but they promote negative sentiments very well. And I just don't get how they have a huge following here. Their music isn't even half-decent. Just felt like putting that out there...

Absolutely true. I haven't seen a lot of popular/expensive acts (like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bruce Springsteen, others, who I would love to) but I have never seen a band for under $40/ticket put on a better show than Thursday.. and I've been to hundreds of shows in my life.

I'm consistently blown away by how honest and approachable the guys in Thursday are. They're one of the only bands that proactively seek to tear the wall and bridge the gap between artist and listener, something I wish other bands in this "scene" would do. I have an interview with Geoff next Wednesday, and although I'm sure I should be stressing about how not to sound like a jackass, I find I'm looking forward to just having a conversation with the guy.

In case you haven't heard, it's all about mediocre-at-best neon pop-rock bands and Bring Me The Horizon these days. I was simply disappointed in the fact that half the people were leaving Taste of Chaos shows after Bring Me The Horizon's set, like they were either the final band or the best band there, leaving a decent band like Thursday with half an audience. Granted, I give much respect to that half audience for sticking around and supporting a band that is actually decent and had a lot to do with spearheading the musical movements we've seen in recent years, although things are moving backwards lately. Even at their hometown date in Sayreville, NJ where we played as well, some people left before Thursday. Like I said in my above comment, I just don't get the fascination with shitty music. I can't even say that I'm too old to understand because I'm only 21.

21 is the new 50...i'm 22 and I agree with your stance on everything, but you have to realize the market that most of the bands are going after are younger and more impressionable than, lets say, yourself

I'm 22. Is there any hope for people like us in this scene? I feel like the only move I have left is to start a band that serves as an homage to the better bands of yester-year. Maybe that way, kids younger than us could appreciate a sound that is lightyears ahead of what's going on now. Cynical, yes, but shit, I'm running out of ideas.
