“It’s been a long time since the last time I saw your face…”
… and it’ll be even longer if you don’t come out for Thornfield’s CD Release Concert and Farewell Party!
After months of being holed up in a studio with nothing but Fig Newtons and Werther’s Originals to give us the illusion of ease, we’re finally nearing the completion of – not one – but TWO brand new Thornfield albums! Assuming all goes well in the final weeks of album prep (::fingers crossed::), both our full-length album, Bright Northern Skies, and our EP, one for a lover, will be at your disposal to do with what you like (besides unauthorized reproduction, ye pirates!), whether you need music for your private prog-indie-rock dance parties or shiny new coasters.
Due to some exciting developments (involving grad school for one and a baby for the other), this will be Thornfield’s final gig for a long while here in Chicago. And with some awesome surprise guests, you won’t want to miss it! Included in the evening’s showcase will be Lakeview’s own naysaying blues brother, Petras, yet another reason to come out.
There is NO DOOR CHARGE, appetizers will be provided, and all (over 21) will be welcome to BYOB if so desired. (What more need we say?) However, please remember to bring cash if you would like to purchase one or both of Thornfield’s new albums, as the Tip Top has not yet been upgraded to accommodate credit cards ($15 for Bright Northern Skies; $5 for one for a lover — or both for only $20!).
The concert will be hosted by Autumn Space, a fantastic art gallery on the north side of Chicago — 1700 W. Irving Park Rd. (a block from the brown line), #207.
Hope to see you there! In the meantime, please support us by officially “liking” us on Facebook. To whet your appetite for the evening and for our album, here’s an itsy bitsy sample of one of our favorite songs, “The Watchman’s Back.” Enjoy!
