Crocodiles at 4 Knotts 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
Crocodiles' tour rolls through NYC tonight (Friday, 9/28) for a show at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show are still available but if you'd like to go for free, we've got two pair of tickets to give away. Details on how to enter are at the bottom of this post along with a list of all dates.
The band are supporting their most recent album, Endless Flowers, which finds them widening their scope while still holding on to those Spacemen 3/JAMC roots. It's a good record. You can stream the whole thing at Spotify and check out the video for its title track below. Openers for this show are Punks on Mars and Alexis & Icewater.
Brandon of Crocodiles' wife, Dee Dee, will be playing with the rest of Dum Dum Girls at Europa on Sunday (9/30) with Chez Deep and Starred, and tickets to that show are still available. It's a record release show for their terrific new End of Daze EP. DDGs will be back opening for The Walkmen at Terminal 5 on October 18 (tickets).
Meanwhile, DDG drummer Sandy's band, SISU, play Glasslands before that on October 10 with Grooms, Royal Baths, and Punks on Mars (tickets). Bleeding Rainbow were on that bill originally, but seem to have dropped off. (They do have other shows in NYC though.)
