Thrice sells out Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles

Thrice kicked off their first official tour at the Shrine Auditorium since announcing their return last year.  The band played a couple intimate shows in Southern California last year and many one off festivals throughout the country. The band is officially back in action with this current tour and a new full-length album To Be Everywhere is to be Nowhere.

Thrice collectively took fans on a journey through their discography. They played many tracks from their new album, as well as play some of their most well-known songs such as “The Artist in the Ambulance” and  “Cold Cash and Colder Hearts.”

The Southern California band also brought some upcoming talent to support them on this run of dates: La Dispute and Gates.

La Dispute is best known for their poetic, spoken-word lyrics, accompanied with instrumental music to better convey the emotion of the lyrics.

The mood for their set was a melancholic atmosphere as two amber and one clear light from above were the only things incorporated into their set.  Vocalist Jordan Dreyer brought the lyrics to life as he passionately ran across the stage and into the crowd.

Gates provided phenomenal support, as their atmospheric blend of ambient and post-rock music filled the hall with bliss and emotion.  Gates may be a fresh, new band off the block, however, they collectively played with talent and maturity to rival many other bands that have put time in and paid their dues.

The entire show was an emotional roller-coaster and definitely an event that needed to be seen live in order to comprehend all the subtle emotions that made the night one to remember.
