The Thermals Return To Minneapolis

In today's "Fuck Yes!" News: Bright Eyes may have forsaken MPLS on his next tour, but The Thermals haven't! And, I mean it when I say that you must go see the Thermals. After all, this isn't today's "Fuck Yes!" news because I'm feigning enthusiasm. The Thermals are one of the most explosively energetic, fun bands I've seen live, and I really do insist that you all go. And on top of it, when I saw them open for Cursive, Craig Finn was out in the crowd, screaming and pumping his beer-and-phone-filled fists in the air. He was sending a text message in between fist pumps. I have always kind of wondered what it said.
