19 June 2012
On that day, Thrice played their last show, and I was lucky enough to witness it.
I am saddened that a band that I have been listening to for over a decade has finally called it quits. I remember being in 7th grade listening to Identity Crisis on my walkman totally enthralled by a band with a singer who screams. From that day on my life would never be the same.
I fear that in a post like this, too many words can lessen the impact of a band like Thrice. So without further adieu, I present to you Thrice’s final setlist:
1. Yellow Belly
2. Image of the Invisible
3. The Artist in the Ambulance
4. Kill Me Quickly
5. Hold Fast Hope
6. Blood Clots and Black Holes
8. In Exile
9. The Weight
11. Broken Lungs
13. Words in the Water
14. Of Dust and Nations
15. Red Sky
*at this point in the show Dustin played a solo acoustic mini-set*
16. Come All You Weary (acoustic)
17. Madman (acoustic)
18. The Whaler (acoustic)
19. Stare at the Sun (acoustic)
20. Disarmed (acoustic)
*Ed, Riley, and Teppei joined Dustin again and finished their set*
22. The Messenger
23. The Earth Will Shake
24. Identity Crisis
25. Helter Skelter (Beatles cover)
27. Phoenix Ignition
29. Stand and Feel Your Worth
30. Under a Killing Moon
32. To Awake and Avenge The Dead
I know I’ll be making a playlist of this set and listening to it on repeat for the next few weeks.
Thank you Thrice for many many years of beautiful music and inspiration. I’ll always get chills listening to Vheissu.
