Thao Le is at it again. She was out at The Castle Theater in Bloomington on Sept. 24 to see and capture in images the post-hardcore California band Touche Amore.

As Le states, “They're currently touring the U.S. before making their way to Brazil, Japan and Australia. I was able to catch their show. Being a weekday show, the crowd was small but the band still played hard. During their set, they took a moment to express their appreciation for those who showed up. Jeremy Bolm, the lead vocalist, got up-close and personal to the fans, kneeling down and stating that he would rather play to a group of 20 people who cared than a stadium of 20,000 who didn't. This positive and humble attitude is one of the many reasons their fans love them.”
