Photos & Show Review: Seaweed & the Whore Moans @the Crocodile

The headliner Seaweed had a friendly, mostly male and energetic fan base. That’s cool and it was even cooler to watch these fans mosh while I was at a safe distance from the action. This meant that I was able to take a small video of the moshing just with my little camera so while it’s not great quality I still find it entertaining. Perhaps you will see yourself in the footage. I hate talking about music holding up well because it’s a cliché but then there’s a reason for these cliché sayings and it’s true when talking about this band. I will admit to being no expert when it comes to them but what I heard sounded great, especially Squint.

The Whore Moans move around so fast when performing that taking pictures of them must be what it’s like trying to take pictures of lightning. When I saw that they were opening for Seaweed at the Crocodile I had to see what they’d make of the new stage. Not only did I see what they’d make of the stage – I also got to see what they would make of the walls and the balcony. Sometimes I can’t decide whether hey look like they are being attacked by their instruments or are attacking them. Generally I think it’s the latter scenario. Some of my favorite songs of the set included Disappear, Wall of a Song, Nerve Tonic and Rise and Shine. This is a must see band, wherever they play but their next show is at Bumbershoot, where they’ll play the EMP Skychurch. I have two requests for them. One is that they use a lot of blue light – it’s great for photos. Two is that they do Fingers and Martyrs. Please.
