Crocodiles Crawl Into State College

Crocodiles

Indie-punk outfit Crocodiles are coming to State College. The show at Chronic Town on September 30th — presented by Penn State’s Students Organizing the Multiple Arts (SOMA) and local music promoter Roustabout — will feature the San Diego-based Crocodiles, State College local rockers Flashback Forward (who made moves over the summer), and the little-known Philly indie band Swiss Alps.

Crocodiles create a unique sound, blending elements of indie rock, pop, psychedelic, noise, and jam rock, while maintaining a danceable beat that can entertain the crowd of stoned hipsters that is sure to fill the headshop/hookah lounge/concert hall next week.

Frontman Brandon Welchez makes heavy use of his overdriven guitar tone and deliberately under-epic, almost dry vocal range reminiscent of the Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan. This generic punk rock sound is overlaid by synth that ranges from ambient background noise to hypnotic trance to full-on psychedelic explosions. Fans of indie rock may want to check out their latest album Endless Flowers to get a taste of what to expect at Chronic Town.

The show starts at 8 p.m. sharp, so make sure to get there early to secure your very own comfy booth and hookah. There is a cover charge of $12, and you must be 18 to enter (sorry kids and poor people). So if you’ve got nothing planned for next Sunday night, come smoke up with friends and live music at Chronic Town.
