    I think it might have been their “youthweek” show. They’re doing another cool festival thing again this year that the thaw should totes play and subverts were interested in playing but we might not be around at that point.

    Check their website for more info on the space..

    found this on grant’s (fulton girls club) blog:

    “….and then we all walked off to watch the thaw, who kind of destroyed me, they were amazing and since then i have wanted to play a gig with them, the drummer asked everybody to put their smokes out “cause we like our lungs” and these kids were running around chasing this dog and the younger girl came and stood next to the drum kit, so they gave her a stick and she thrashed a cymbal all threw their next song. it was the rythm the thaw had, i think it’s a revolutionary thing to fuck with time signature, people sink into the beat and get comfortable to easy. when you move it around and fuck it up peoples thoughts come in bursts instead of drawls.”

    dated july 20 2007 and mentions a show with you and subverts at mgtvle…..

    I can’t believe you lot played with Midnight Juggernauts not once but TWICE! That’s so awesome. No sarcasm either- dead serious. Also put My Disco in brackets for The Model.

    haha midnight juggernauts. where were you when we were playing those shows will?

    oh and i love how youse have taken to heart our request for input. classic example is will ohana, above, demanding bracketed additions to the past shows list. which i promptly went and did, cos it made sense.

    and thanks for reminding us paul.
