Thick share song “Bleeding,” play EP release show at Elsewhere on 5/24 and Northside Fest on 6/7

No strangers to our blog and mag, Brooklyn punky garage rockers Thick have been building a steady following since their inception back in 2016.  Emerging from the splinters of other local favorites, the three piece has harnessed an appealing mix of wild abandon and serious determination.  Recent release “Bleeding” (streaming below) is a pedal down chugger that details how difficult life in the city can sometimes be. While the verses lay all this down with amusing lo-fi “oooh wah” background vocals, melodic riffs and sharp rhythmic accents come fast and hard. The chorus hits like a Hey-Ho Ramones fist pumping shout-along - “don't touch me – I'm bleeding!”   Having recently completed a mini-tour of prominent ivy league colleges, the band scheduled a hometown EP release show at Elsewhere on 5/24 appearing with Gymshorts, Chorizo and Lost Boy. The band is also scheduled to appear during the Northside Festival on 6/7. - Dave Cromwell

Riot grrrl trio Thick performs at Union Pool 11.09

If you haven’t checked out Thick yet, now is probably a good time. The Brooklyn garage rock trio has been buzzing lately with a nod from The New York Times in an article on how women are making the best rock music and a feature on Glassnote Records Noteworthy Compilation. The attention is much deserved. Thick play hooky garage-pop that marries grit, power and three way harmonies. Whether you’re already a fan or just want to see what the hype is about, you can catch the band at Union Pool on November 9 with The Wants, BLED, and Future Twin. – Cameron Carr
