Local music lovers were pretty bummed when Krill announced over Facebook in September that the trio would be breaking up.

The band has been a staple of the Boston music scene for years, even earning a spot on the Boston Calling Music Festival’s spring lineup this past May.

While Krill may be calling it quits, area fans still have a chance to say goodbye to the indie-rockers when they take over Great Scott for their final two shows in town on Thursday, October 15.

“It’s nice to be able to stop doing it when I still feel good about it, and feel good about everything that we were able to do,” guitarist Aaron Ratoff recently told the Boston Globe. “[The shows will] have people there that still feel good about it and just generally have it be a community moment, the community being anyone who has ever cared.”

Following the group’s last hometown concerts, Krill will be heading to New York for a pair of shows that will be the band’s final performances ever. The trio will be playing at Shea Stadium (no, not the old New York Mets venue) in Brooklyn on October 21 before heading to Silent Barn on October 23, where a slew of special guests will help send Krill off with a rocking swan song.

If you want to say farewell to the band on Thursday night, there are still some tickets available for the 7:15 p.m. show, which will be followed by the already sold-out 10:30 p.m. show. Check out for more information.
