The Thermals in Austin in 2011 (more by Tim Griffin)
The Thermals are having a solid year so far with the vinyl reissues of their Sub Pop albums (out now), and signing to Saddle Creek for their new album, Desperate Ground, which from the sounds of its first single, "Born to Kill," is shaping up to be a good one. They've also got an expanding tour, which already includes a BrooklynVegan-presented show at 285 Kent on Thursday (3/7) with Hilly Eye and Habibi and another NYC-area date on Saturday (3/9) at Maxwell's with TEEN.
We're happy to announce that they'll stick around NYC for a third show in the area, which happens on Monday (3/11) at Ace Hotel as part of the Bowery Presents/Martin Guitar '5 at 5' series. If you're unfamiliar, the series will have the band doing a free 5-song set at 5 PM in the Ace Hotel lobby. The flyer for that show is below. The Thermals' tour also hits Austin for SXSW, where they will play a BrooklynVegan day party on the Friday (3/15).
Updated Thermals dates are listed, along with the show flyer and a stream of "Born to Kill," below...
