Thrice Leads Eclectic Rock Bill at Revolution

In 1998, a friend told Thrice vocalist/rhythm guitarist Dustin Kensrue that he'd beaten the game Frogger twice. Kensrue replied he'd beaten it "thrice," and the rest is band-name history.

The post-hardcore, experimental rock act has been going strong since, with six EPs, seven albums, a live album, and a few side projects to date. Though the guys changed their sound a bit throughout the years, going from what they dubbed "a sleepy feeling" to "a little more upbeat and energetic," they've always managed to hint at their metal influences while staying true to form and using nontraditional elements in the process — among them keyboard melodies, Japanese music boxes, and chain-gang chants.

Brooklyn singer/songwriter Kevin Devine, who brings his Goddamn Band along for the tour, has songs from recent stunning alt-country album Brother's Blood to lure the crowd to Revolution earlier in the evening.
