Nostalgia Post #1: Thursday @ CBGB's Nov 11, 2001

Thursday band

Before "Understanding In A Car Crash" was on MTV and before there was animosity with Victory Records (at least publicly) Thursday was touring relentlessly after releasing Full Collapse in April of 2001.  Seven months after the record that "broke punk again" was released Thursday stopped by what probably was New York City's most famous rock venue.

November 11, 2001 Thursday played CBGB's. It had been just two months after the towers fell and in the first video, "Paris In Flames" Geoff states "We had a friend in the 2nd tower, and he said when he saw the plane hit the first tower, this is the song he was listening too."  He goes on to explain it is about not accepting everything you read or hear from the media.

Love watching old videos, was always more of an War All The Time fan, but this record is definitely classic.
