This past Friday I made my way to Amsterdam Bar and Hall to catch the Hawthorne Heights show. While I was pretty stoked to see Hawthorne Heights, one band definitely stood out above the rest: Triple Stitch.
Triple Stitch is a four-piece punk/rock n’ roll band hailing from the Lonsdale/Minneapolis area. If you don’t know where Lonsdale is then GET A MAP, because small-town bands are bands too. Triple Stitch even has a song called “Small Towns” which you can listen to here.
Their live show is absolutely fantastic. I really can’t say enough about it. Their energy is off the charts, I can’t remember the last time I saw a local band move around as much as they did. And don’t you miss guitar solos? GUESS WHO HAS THEM? Triple Stitch.
Their sound reminds me of an old school 70s punk band with a nice amount of rock n’ roll, but it’s also unique in the fact that the songs don’t really have any rough edges to them. You don’t feel as if your ears are being assaulted by distortion or screaming lyrics about how everything sucks.
On top of that, their set included a cover of “I’m Not Okay” by My Chemical Romance and a fun performance of the theme song to The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air. Triple Stitch is definitely a band who knows how to put on a good show and get the crowd moving.
