The Rule of Three is in play tonight when these tight and scrappy three-pieces share a stacked bill. When the Thermals are not out touring the world, you might be able to find them around Northeast Portland starting slow-motion mosh pits and giving each other piggy-back rides at Woolen Men shows. You can also find two-thirds of the band playing with their other group, Hurry Up. Tonight you have the perfect opportunity to witness both. Hurry Up is a must-see, only partly because the band has yet to release any recorded music. On the other hand, the Woolen Men have a handful of cassettes and a self-titled album out on the Woodsist label. But the easiest gateway has to be their unparalleled barn-burner of a live show. Seattle's the Wimps round things out with some straight-shooting and easy-to-love punk bursts.
