Preview: Thrice at the Newport

From the October 20, 2011 edition

Thrice always seemed more respectable than many of their peers in the emo and post-hardcore scene. (Forget for a moment that they released an album called “The MySpace Transmissions.”) Perhaps the general goodness in their fiber is why they’ve been able to endure for eight albums, most recently last month’s “Major/Minor.” The record finds them aging gracefully, presenting a refined version of Thrice, though not a restrained one.

La Dispute, O’Brother and Moving Mountains fill out Sunday’s lengthy bill.
