Geoff Rickly made perfect sense as an opener, since he's contributed vocals to at least one of Anthony Green's projects before. Photos by Michel Dussack

His band, Thursday, are currently on an indefinite hiatus, so one would expect to see more and more solo shows from Geoff. Photos by Michel Dussack

Geoff closed his set with "Turnpike Divides", the song that's closed every Thursday set for about two years. Photos by Michel Dussack

However, the singer chose to barely touch upon Circa Survive's music throughout his acoustic set. Photos by Michel Dussack

Instead, he opted to play mostly songs off of his various solo releases including "Beautiful Things", his solo album which came out earlier this year. Photos by Michel Dussack

The singer also opted to not use a preplanned setlist, making tracking what was played extremely difficult. Photos by Michel Dussack

It did however, add a feeling of spontaneity to his set, seemingly playing whatever he felt at will. Photos by Michel Dussack

A few songs in the singer spoke about how there's always a handful of people who dress up in costume to Circa Survive's shows to stand out. Photos by Michel Dussack

At one point, when Anthony suggested that the crowd should be drinking eggnog, one vocal fan yelled out "That makes me fart". Photos by Michel Dussack

To this Anthony could not stop laughing and told the guy to not do that in the crowded venue. Photos by Michel Dussack

There was also no photo pit at this show, with Anthony opting to have the venue push their barricade as close to the stage as possible. Photos by Michel Dussack
