The Hotelier and Primitive Weapons opening for Thursday

One of the year’s more exciting reunions is NJ post-hardcore heroes Thursday, who played their first show in five years at a Wrecking Ball aftershow in Atlanta this past August. They played the fest proper the next day, and both were hugely triumphant returns. The band looked and sounded as good as they did the first time around, and the crowds were clearly glad to have them back.

We caught Thursday again at Riot Fest Chicago, and their next show is McDade, TX’s stacked Sound on Sound Fest. Around the holidays, they’ll play those two hometown-area shows at Starland Ballroom on December 29 and 30.

It’s now been announced that night 1 now has a pretty exciting opener, The Hotelier, plus local staples Primitive Weapons. Tickets for that one are still available. No openers announced for the sold-out night two, but Thursday say, “Will there be other surprises??? Yes, I think we all know there are gonna be a couple twists and turns coming.”

Meanwhile, The Hotelier are on tour now with Joyce Manor (who just released an excellent album) and Crying (whose debut LP comes out on Run for Cover this week). That tour includes a sold-out NYC show on Tuesday (10/18).

Updated Thursday and Hotelier dates are listed below, with some music.
