For two guys making music together since their late-teens, it would be understandable if Charles Rowell and Brandon Welchez took some time off for themselves—but that’s not how they work. Between their latest record, Crimes of Passion (their second on Frenchkiss Records), and an international tour, it’s been a busy year for the San Diego outfit. Initially a duo, Welchez and Rowell now spearhead a quartet, their indie noise pop sound expanding with the addition of their new bandmates. And though they now split their time between New York and London, the twosome hasn't left behind the sound that’s been at their core. Crocodiles are in the middle of a month-long tour, with this show being the closest to their hometown, so don’t be surprised if they have something special in store.
