2005_01_artsthermals.jpgThere are some great shows coming up that will get you from Valentine's Day to St. Patricks Day, but you're going to want to buy tickets SOON, before they sell out. Gothamist is particularly looking forward to the Thermals [pictured, reading Nabokov - hott!] @ Knitting Factory, as well as our own Movable Hype 2 at the same venue. And if you don't know who the Kaiser Chiefs are, you will, so just buy tickets now. Remember when everyone was in love with Franz Ferdinand last year? This is like the same thing, so jump on the hipster bandwagon or prepare to be silently judged. Personally we don't think they're that great, but want to check them out for ourselves, since we do like this video. Also check out the last sell outs post for more info on future shows we're not relisting here.
