The Thermals, Cymbals Eat Guitars 

When: Sat., Oct. 16, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $12-14

The Thermals recall a pre-Blink 182 moment when punk was synonymous with smart, catchy, energetic music. There's a blue-collar ethos to their bash-and-dash rumble, which wears its point-blank simplicity like a badge. The Portland trio drapes its albums in grimy lo-fi buzz, and the last three have featured such thematic concerns as the intertwining of religion and politics, life and death, and, on their latest, Personal Life, the pursuit of love. Openers Cymbals Eat Guitars' debut is at turns noisy, dreamy, clambering and propulsive as it cycles through a grab bag of alt/college-rock influences like the Pixies, Pavement, Modest Mouse and The Flaming Lips. —Chris Parker
