The reunited Thursday have some holiday shows coming up, but first, frontman Geoff Rickly will play an ACLU benefit in Queens on September 22 at Knockdown Center. The show, billed as ‘Band Together: A Concert Against Hate,’ also includes Dave Elkins (of Mae), French Horn Rebellion, and Janelle Kroll. Tickets are on sale. Flyer below.

UPDATE: Geoff tweeted at that the show he’ll be “working up some Thursday classics with special guests from other bands.” Sounds exciting!

Thursday’s holiday shows are with PUP and Frank Iero, and they include Long Island’s Paramount on 12/28 (tickets) and NJ’s Starland Ballroom on 12/30 (tickets). Thursday have international and US tour dates planned for 2018, and they say that after that, they’ll only play more shows if they make a new album, “and new music will only come if [they] feel it’s truly inspired and adds a new dimension to the band.”
