A Thong by Any Other Name Would Sound as Sweet





A Thong by Any Other Name Would Sound as Sweet

It's damn near impossible not to think of Sisqo's 1999 ode to whale tails and the cheeks that complete the look when the word "thong" is heard, or really just thought of. That's probably not the reaction local psych-surf act Thong were going for with their name, though "Thong Song" was definitely an anthem of sorts. Regardless, Thong recently announced that they're going to be changing their name, and that these last few shows of theirs were the final times to see them as the thongs that once were.

As far as what Thong's new name will be, that's something we'll all just have to learn at their name change reveal show this Sunday, with garage poppers Marcy's Band and Este dropping rhymes. Visuals will be provided by Grayson Bear and there will even be a little bit of stand up from George Jones. But we all can rest pretty easily knowing that just because the band is changing their name doesn't mean they're changing their beloved sound.

Head over to 5th Avenue Cinema this Sunday to catch Thong's last show as such.
