Crocodiles and Devin @ 7th St. Entry
June 22nd, 2012
There was nothing but musical energy surging from the 7th Street Entry stage on Friday, June 23. Making his debut from Brooklyn, NY, Devin sprung a lively stage presence covering every bit of the space with slides, dives, and leaps. He was equally equipped with his straight forward rock ‘n roll seasoned with Buddy Holly pops in his frantic vocals as featured in “Masochist” and “I Don’t Think I.”
San Diego’s Crocodiles brought their swagger to promote their recently released album, “Endless Flowers.” Lead singer; Brandon Welchez waltzed right into the crowd and swarmed around while the crowd broke out into a head-nodding trance. Highlights included the rebellious, “I Wanna Kill,” the charming, “No Black Clouds for Dee Dee,” and the thriving, “My Surfing Lucifer.” Crocodiles ended on a high note with “Welcome Trouble” with its fitting vocalized yelps and clamoring arrangement that echoes like a warning. Rumor has it these rollicking reptilians will be back in Minneapolis in September or October.
