We arrived halfway through this stacked four-band bill, in time for Ten Miles Wide, who played under their new moniker having recently laid to rest their former name “The Mothership” after some legal issues. The aggression displayed by all three members (especially the drummer Will Andrews) was visceral, with sweat and grimaces complimenting their heavy guitars.
Electro-punkers Ever So Android upped their visual game with a stage art instillation, replacing their previous standard of featuring live painters. For a show of this magnitude – the band was celebrating the release of their debut full-length album Disconnect – it fit perfectly. There were no extra bodies on stage to distract the eye from the charismatic group.
The crowd went from anticipation to abandoned dance orgy in a matter of four songs. Once vocalist Hope Simpson cascaded her body across the sea of raised hands the sweat and heat became almost debilitating to the nearly 400 people crammed into the Crocodile.
