Thousands @ Great Scott 8/27

I was lucky to get to know the band members of Thousands this summer--an instrumental Boston band fronted by Northeastern grad, Omar Kazmi. The trio had a show last Friday (8/27) at Great Scott and it was the first time I got to see the guys live. The performance was strong and gripping with dark, angular guitar parts and a driving rhythm. Kazmi and his bandmates Brandon Phillips and Supriya Gunda only needed their music--no on-stage banter or even eye contact--to grab the attention of their audience members. Keep your eyes peeled for Thousands... they'll be releasing an album soon and we'll be keeping you informed at WTBU.
