Three Daily Choice Favorites at The Crocodile Tonight!

Tonight is a rare triple Daily Choice approved bill at The Crocodile. Each and every band on the stacked bill: Chain and the Gang, Turbo Fruits and Golden Triangle should be familiar favorites for regular Daily Choice readers.

Here’s what Noah had to say about each of the bands, with a link back to the original post, where you can either download a track by the artist or watch a video.

Golden Triangle (Daily Choice: February 18, 2010)

“This is sexy, throbbing garage. This is music you lay your lover down on a weather-beaten leather couch you found on the streets of Baltimore with, your hand all up on the torn holes of their leather jacket, the holes in their torn jeans providing just the right space. This is romance with spit dripping from its chin. ”

Turbo Fruits (Daily Choice: October 7, 2009)

“Be My Own Pet was like being at your high school prom on speed – all torn cuffs and frayed party dresses. Turbo Fruits is like the after party at your friends house – all keg beer, concrete slabs and cheerleaders horfing in the rhododendrons.”

Chain and the Gang (Daily Choice: May 28, 2009)

“Ian Svenonius and his new band Chain and the Gang stepped on stage, literally tearing through a set of revamped, tweaked, toyed with homages to gospel and chain gang songs that had my foot tapping and my worries dispelled. … I will forsake freedom any day for this good of music.”

Tonight’s Daily Choice approved show is $8 … and we guarantee you, it’s worth every hard-earned penny. And, this should serve as a reminder, pay attention to the Daily Choice. Noah has a knack of knowing about great bands before everyone else does and sharing them with you right here.

The Daily Choice: Golden Triangle – Neon Noose

by

I love Hardly Art.  Have loved ‘em since they just crushed 2008 with Moondoggies, Le Loup, Pica Beats and The Dutchess and The Duke.  And though I can’t say I’ve been as enraptured with some of their recent sophomore releases, the good folk over at that label are continuing to make choices that surprise and intrigue me.

Such as they’re recent decision to pretty much stock their 2010 calender with heavy experiment noise bands like Talbot Tagora (I’m still trying to find some of my hearing from their basement Greenhouse show) and big, brash thrash punk like Unnatural Helpers.  So far, I’m happy. Shit-eating, green in the face from giggling happy about these choices.

Throw Golden Triangle in the mix, a band I’ve heard of so many times and have just, just for the first time given myself the pleasure of listening to, and I might just keel on over.  This is sexy, throbbing garage.  This is music you lay your lover down on a weather-beaten leather couch you found on the streets of Baltimore with, your hand all up on the torn holes of their leather jacket, the holes in their torn jeans providing just the right space.  This is romance with spit dripping from its chin.  Lust and love wrapped in the pulsing strobe of a coke trip gone wrong.

The video above, by talented filmmaker Micki Pellarano and featuring lead singer Alix Brown bolsters my strangely dirty thoughts.  I believe this video has masturbation in it.
