The Thermals, Pipe 

When: Fri., May 31, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $11-13

Not unlike Superchunk's Mac McCaughan or The Hold Steady's Craig Finn, Thermals co-founder and frontman Hutch Harris is an unlikely candidate for a men's choir. His voice is singular and warped, pushed from the back of his throat like an articulated bark. It's also one of indie rock's most identifiable and urgent bleats, an instrument perfectly suited for the band's sometimes-sardonic and generally agitated fare. Their latest and first for Saddle Creek, Desperate Ground, offers 10 perfectly coiled doses of their trio force. And Harris, again like McCaughan and Finn, primes the pump for sing-alongs. Pipe opens. —Grayson Currin
