Review & Photos : Crocodiles @ Mohawk

Rain threatened the entire operation, but thanks to Crocodiles' minimal setup, things were switched around and the band ended up going on first inside, not second outside, but we wouldn't have had it any other way. The outside stage might have allowed their sound to escape too quickly and not have the same impact, but the indoor stage let the band shine. Their electronics were trapped with nowhere to go but around your head and into your psyche and Brandon and Charles made quick work of getting things off on the right foot with "Neon Jesus", one of the best songs they have put out and certainly a standout of their set. The band was just loud enough to jar those who had no idea what was coming and to satisfy those who did. The guys are some of the nicest that we have had the pleasure of meeting and are genuinely good at what they do, which makes them that much better.
