Tonight: Would you please welcome to the stage, Sloan!
There couldn't possibly be a better way to shake off your 3-day-weekend-back-at-work-blues then tonight's show at the Crocodile. There's a kind of showmanship that only comes from multiple decades worth of rocking and being unbelivably famous in your own country but relatively relegated to the indie rock nerds in the country that borders your own. Enter Sloan, a band that has opened for the Rolling Stones in their homeland of Canada and regularly headlines huge venues to thousands of screaming fans, but plays intimate rock clubs in the states.
Despite the smaller venue size on this side of the border, Sloan always brings arena-sized performance to the plate, consistently performing fan favorites from their nearly two decade career of hard hitting power-pop. And, as an added bonus, local alt-country pop favorites the Tripwires are set to open. I swear it's worth the Tuesday night show.
I hope that Sloan plays this song.
