The life of a band is a funny thing. For a moment, being in one can feel like the most important thing in the world: creating music and spreading your message with some of your best friends, traveling the country, and being part of a community of like-minded artists. It’s fleeting, though. Life happens and bands can’t stay together forever. Such is the case with Chicago’s Split Feet, whose surfy, fierce post-punk will come to end after its current tour. On the band’s full-length debut, 2015’s Shame Parade, the quartet channels classic D.C. bands like Autoclave and Slant 6 over the course of eight original songs (and one bad-ass Siouxsie and the Banshees cover). The group plans to record and release more material, but Thursday night is the last time you’ll be able to catch it live in D.C.
