Beloved post-hardcore band Thursday took to a small, hometown venue (Brooklyn’s St. Vitus) to say goodbye to fans who managed to score tickets to the final stop of the outfit’s 20th anniversary shows.

As an added bonus, Thursday’s final show, probably ever, also featured the surprise debut of a new band fronted by Frank Iero, who is best known as guitarist for My Chemical Romance (Iero’s third solo album, BARRIERS, is set for release on May 31).

Todd Fixler made the trip all the way from Florida so that he could share some photos from this third night of a three-night stand. Have a look at the gallery here.
