Last night, Thrice and Manchester Orchestra gathered to play a sold-out show at the brand new House of Blues location in Anaheim.
Opening the show was Manchester Orchestra, an indie-alternative rock band from Atlanta, Georgia. Their music had a chill yet energetic vibe to it and was a perfect complement to Thrice’s sound. Their energy was seemingly infectious and the crowd enjoyed the music from start to finish.
After Manchester Orchestra concluded the set— and after a short wait that seemed to go by extremely slowly— Thrice’s frontman Dustin opened with a solo, “As The Crow Flys”. Following that, the rest of the band took the stage with amazing presence and began the set with “Firebreather”.
When it seemed like the crowd couldn’t get any more full of energy, they did— the members of the audience were singing and screaming in unison along to every word of every song of the set until it was over.
Thrice played a collection of songs from their older records as well as hits “Black Honey” and “Hurricane” from their most recent record, To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere that was released last year. To close out the night, they played the crowd favorite “Deadbolt”— it wouldn’t be a Thrice show without it.
