When: Fri., May 25, 9 p.m. 2018
This show is an alternative rock fan’s local dream. For starters, we’ll get a chance to check out the live chops of the hard-rock/alt-rock outfit Crowns X Coffins, which formed in 2017 and features members of the bands FIN, Lokey and Slowlikefire. Also on the bill, Villains is an alternative rock band but with a decidedly bluesier sound, steeped in a garage rock vibe, with a bit of a post-punk thing going on, too. You can dig Villains’ music at villains210.bandcamp.com. As you can probably tell from the tracks there, the band’s music is pretty killer in the live-setting. Lastly, the bill will feature the mighty Stegosaur, a locally-beloved, emotive indie punk band that doesn’t play too often these days. A chance to catch these dudes in action, as anyone who followed local music in the mid-aughts can tell you, is not to be missed. Full disclosure: Jaime Monzon of Crowns X Coffins is digital operations coordinator for the Current’s parent company Euclid Media Group.
