"Band Saves The House"

"The second and final act was The Boy Who Thought. This group saved the show from becoming stale. An eclectic selection of songs, including the title "Barfight" shows the band is indulgent enough not to take themselves too seriously, and it pays off. The quintet brought a sense of stage presence and even professionalism while playing their 45 minute set. The lead singer and drummer both laid down dueling vocals through almost every song. Even by implementing a cowbell in a song, The Boy Who Though stayed focused and steady throughout their entire set. The dance/rock craze of the last couple years has fizzled out and it is exciting to see a new and unique approach to the genre. All ofthe songs featured have an upbeat and extremely fast tempo, which at another venue, may have caused some serious dancing. The Boy Who Thought will play DeKalb next at Otto's Sept 24th."

Karma Goes Down on The Boy Who Thought- EP



Our influences include but are not limited to the ocean, A nightmare on Elm Street, and Milli Vanilli (we don't care if those guys got busted, we always blame it on the rain). What sets us apart from other bands is our ability to crochet on stage, while at the same time inspiring joy and mild acid indigestion among our fans. The Boy Who Thought was formed in the seedy underbelly of the Chicago suburbs known as Elgin, home to the world famous El Faro's burrito. We're just five dudes working with youth in one way or another who play in a band. Oh yeah, and our live show feels like someone dropped an atomic bomb in your pants... and you enjoyed it.
