Valient Thorr - Tonight!

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Fri, Jul 11, 2008 at 10:14 AM


(Hawthorne Theatre, 1507 SE 39th) Valient Thorr sets sail from a distant world (Venus, I believe) toward upper Hawthorne tonight. These lads shred in a mighty way and have both astute irony and succinct wit wrapped around their skull-encrusted fingers. Early Man has sort of dropped off the radar lately, but when I skipped out on a post-holiday dinner karaoke session to see them at Doug Fir a couple of years back, it was so worth it. They're like a band made up of three actual cavemen who can play modern rock instruments completely un-ironically, which is, you know, refreshing. LANCE CHESS
