See Gomez Play Terminal 5 on Thursday Night

July 11th, 2011

Back in 1996, five English lads started to play music together. They hadn’t come up with a name for their first gig, so to let their friend Gomez know where to find them, someone posted a sign reading GOMEZ IN HERE. Who knows if Gomez actually found the band, but the band became Gomez. Their first disc, Bring It On, came out the following year. And since then, with consistent time on the road and in the studio, Gomez (above, playing “Just as Lost as You”) has continued to get better and better. Their shows are high-energy affairs and their albums are filled with catchy tunes sung by different vocalists. The group’s most recent disc, Whatever’s on Your Mind, which SPIN calls out for its “compelling and entertaining textures,” came out last month. And Gomez plays Terminal 5 on Thursday.
