Can you think of something you did 20 years ago that you might still be good at now? Maybe in 1999, you were the ultimate Pokémon master? Or maybe nobody could top your score when you busted out Snake on your Nokia?
Regardless of whatever your pre-Y2K skill was, we’re sure if you attempted it now, there’s a pretty good chance you’d be a little rusty.
However, when it comes to New Jersey icons Thursday, after 20 years of creating some of the most influential and impactful music around, the scene torchbearers are still going incredibly strong.
Currently commemorating two decades as a band, the Geoff-Rickley led outfit are celebrating with fans as they perform arguably two of their biggest LPs in full on back-to-back nights.
Playing 2001′s Full Collapse and 2003′s War All The Time, Thursday has been able to give longtime listeners yet another chance to scream along to fan-favorites such as “Cross Out The Eyes,” “Division St.,” “Autobiography of a Nation” as well as obvious staples such as “Signals Over The Air” and “Understanding In A Car Crash.”
For a nostalgic look back at Rickley, Tucker Rule, Tim Payne, Tom Keeley and Steve Pedulla ripping into the soundtrack of your youth, plus openers Vein just demolishing everything in sight, be sure to check out photos below from Noise contributor Joe Ortega.
