Tonight’s Best Bet: Bowerbirds at the Croc

Every time we listen to the Bowerbirds, we’re reminded why we became fans in the first place. Somewhat akin to Andrew Bird with less whistling and fewer string-based flourishes, the Bowerbirds play thoughtfully-crafted, understated folk music that moves beyond sonic preconceptions that often accompany folk, or really any label of a certain genre.

Whether you’re a longtime fan or just intrigued by the sound of them, we recommend spending time with the bands recorded material. Once you’re on board, head over to The Croc to take in the live experience for yourself.

4/3 – Bowerbirds, Dry the River @ The Crocodile, Doors at 8 pm, $14.50 incl. fees

FREE Live Music from Your Friends at SEA Live Music: Heartless Bastards

We’re thrilled to be able to offer you a chance to see the Heartless Bastards when they’re in town next Monday for free. For a chance to win a pair of tickets to their 4/9 show, just send an email to SEAliveMUSIC [at] with the subject line “Got to Have Rock and Roll” by noon this Friday.

Aren’t familiar with Heartless Bastards? They’re a down-home American rock band from Austin (via Ohio). Lead singer Erika Wennerstrom has a strong, soulful voice that commands the attention of the room. Erika’s vocals, paired with the raw energy of the backing band, Heartless Bastards offers the type of hard-driving, earthy rock you can’t help but feel in your bones.

4/9 (Monday) – Heartless Bastards with David Vandervelde and Brian Lopez @ The Crocodile, 8 pm, 21+, Ticket price: $19 incl. fees
