Crocodiles at Mercury Lounge (more by Marcus Lauer)
Crocdiles

After a European tour with White Lies (who recently cancelled their NYC show due to snow), Crocodiles will team up with The Fresh & Onlys & Young Prisms for a tour that includes a Brooklyn show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 4/23. Tickets go on AMEX presale Wednesday at noon (2/2) and then on regular sale Friday.

The Fresh & Onlys will also be at SXSW in March, and have a few other scattered dates scheduled before they hook up with the other two bands in April. Young Prisms meanwhile have a very busy schedule including a tour with The Radio Dept that has them back in NYC in February (though for one show, not two)

While we're on the subject of Crocodiles, Echo & The Bunnymen are performing the LP of the same name along with the Heaven Up Here LP on a North American tour this May. Tickets are still available for the NYC show at Irving Plaza.

Crocodiles (the band) were last here for CMJ, but had to cancel their tour right afterwards due to a death in the family. That family also belongs to Dee Dee of the Dum Dum Girls who also cancelled a tour at the same time and have since scheduled a new one too.

Tour dates and videos below...

kinda feel like fresh & onlys should be headlining

ha,ha. These weiners are back? I'm sure they're huge in Belgium, or somewhere equally euro...

Go away already.

U R Welcome.

"whatever man. They are a hard working band, good for them"

A sentiment rarely expressed on these threads. Good for you.

@12:54: Which band are you referring to as "weiners" [sic]? These are all American bands that have a large enough following here in their own right. Or are you just wary of anything that comes out of California?

Move along, there's nothing to see here...

Haters going to hate... crocodiles are a great live

This band used to play rock cover songs (LedZep/Allman/Cheap Trick) in San Diego bars a few years back. Trust me, they never liked the shoegaze or JAMC either. lol

oh and williamsburg is so full of character and originality isnt it?

You SO made that up. They were never in a rock cover band. They were in The Plot To Blow Up The Eiffel Tower and for a short time, The Prayers. I think The Prayers once did a Smiths tribute night.

You are a fag.

Well I heard that the one fellow in the band used to work at the hummus shop down on front street.
