Crocodiles, Eternal Summers 

When: Mon., July 16, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $10-12

For June's Endless Flowers, their third album, San Diego's Crocodiles expanded to a full quintet. With the increased membership, the band's sound surprisingly softened. As a duo, Brandon Welchez and Charles Rowell cast their hazy Jesus and Mary Chain jangle over throbbing drum machines, cutting pop hooks with a Suicide throb. Endless Flowers drops the robotics in favor of a looser, warmer psychedelia, bringing Crocodiles in closer sonic proximity to tour mates Eternal Summers. The Virginia trio drinks from a similar well of noise-glazed pop; its big hooks are propelled by snappy post-punk and draped in dreamy feedback. Pay $10–$12 for this 9 p.m. doubleheader. —Bryan C. Reed
