Contest! Win a Pair of Tickets to See Crocodiles @ Empire Room (10.31)

CrocodilesSo you’re not really the Halloween sort, or maybe you are.  What we do know is that you need to enjoy rock n’ roll in some manner, otherwise it wouldn’t the crazy night we all expect! We’ve got a deal for you; you can win a pair of tickets to see Crocodiles at Empire Room…FREE.  The band comes in town to support their recent Crimes of Passion LP, and they’ll be joined by Royal Bangs and local act Growl.  It seems perfect if you’re looking for last minute plans to come together.  All you have to do is leave a comment telling us what you’ll be for Halloween, or what you hope people don’t wear as a costume.  Either way, you have the best idea, you have a free pair of tickets.  If you want to go the traditional way, you can grab tickets from Knuckle Rumbler, who’s helping us with this contest (thanks Aaron).

Gritty Rocker from Crocodiles

crocsI passed on this track a couple of days ago; I’m sorry, my life’s a mess! But, now that I’m back with it, I think everyone needs to take a good listen to this new jam from Crocodiles.  This is the sort of track I expected to hear more of when the band released their last effort, Endless Flowers, though that ended up a bit too polished.  On this number, they still have some melodic hooks, especially in the chorus, but the song itself seems to ooze with noisier elements on the edges, making the track more than just some casual pop ditty. You can find this tune on Crimes of Passion, which comes out on August 20th.
