[POST-UNPLUGGED] For a while, Thursday was the emo-leaning post-hardcore band it was OK for adults to admit enjoying. Looking back, the band truly was better than a lot of its peers. But now that the New Jersey group has entered its 30s and left the Warped Tour scene behind, its frontman, Geoff Rickly, has gone off to prove his songwriting legitimacy the way a lot of his contemporaries have: by going acoustic. Of course, the notion that stripping songs down to their simplest form somehow makes them more legitimate is a fallacy that should’ve been disproven back when hair metal bands started unplugging and recording “totally sincere” ballads. For folks in their late 20s with star tattoos and plugged earlobes, though, this is a rare opportunity to commune intimately with one of the black-shirted heroes of the early 2000s.
