The pulverizing Band of Skulls nearly took out part of the Crocodile on Thursday night. Towards the end of the British band’s set one of the photos on the wall fell to the ground under Band of Skulls’ sonic weight. They’ve just put out their debut CD, 2009’s Baby Darling Doll Face Honey, but the happily rabid reaction they received from fans proved them to be a major player. You will hear much more from these Brits. My favorite songs of the night, songs you could feel pounding in the air? Fires, Death By Diamonds And Pearls and I Know What I Am.

La Roux played the Showbox Market on Monday evening to an adoring and dancing crowd. La Roux deserves this respect – they’re purveyors of synth dance music of the best kind. With the vocals of Ellie Jackson, they recall and reinvent the genre of the Human League, Heaven 17 and Eurythmics. Perfection! Local artist DJ Colby B set the mood before La Roux’s show. I always love hearing her play.

I have a long and boring story I could share about why it took me so long to get these photos ready. Basically it involves my camera deciding to shoot only in the RAW and making it very difficult to edit these photos. Anyway, I love Electric Six and want them to return when my camera decides to behave itself again -and it will. Anytime. Anytime. My photos of one of the best bands, ever:
Last week I was thrilled to introduce Graham Lee on here with his photos of Angels and Airwaves and Say Anything. I am thrilled this week to introduce and debut another photographer, David Conger, with his pix of AVA and Say Anything. I won’t complain again about how disappointed I am that I had to miss the show but instead focus on additional superb photos of these bands. And AVA, I love you and will see you next time.
