Thermoses (Thermi?) Aplenty

Written on September 21, 2007 at 4:07 pm, by Amelia

Here is a snippet of the conversation Lain and I had as we drove to the Wren’s Nest this morning: “Oh man, Thermos is the best name EVER.” For a person, that is.

There were no hearty soups to enjoy later in the day, nor coffee to transport, so why were we discussing the magnitude of the word/name “Thermos”?

Thermos Greenwood and the Colored People, now known as The League of Decency

Because, of course, Thermos Greenwood and the Colored People is the name of a band fronted by Tommy Dean, who is of course the current frontman for the League of Decency, which is of course the band who will be playing at the eagerly awaited and rapidly approaching Wren’s Nest Concert. Of course.

That’s them, above. Clever, eh?

Naturally, this was not the last time “Thermos” came up in the day’s conversations.* Somewhere between lunch at Thumbs Up Diner and telling Imani that Bugs Bunny is Brer Rabbit’s brother, Lain stumbled upon this awesome site.

With pictures from legendary concerts – 1971 was a good time to be a rock and roll fan in Georgia, thank you Allman Brothers – and testimonials to boot, it’s worth a look.

(This is what Abernathy Blvd. is going to look like on October 6th.)

Also, if you’re me, it a great way to wallow in the pain of being born approximately 30 years too late. Thanks a lot, mom.

*Remember when I said this site brought upon a second “Thermos”-inspired batch of excitement? A Brer Rabbit t-shirt awaits the first person who can figure out why. All the clues are at your well-linked fingertips!
