WE LIKE IT - Crash Encore

We stopped by Wasted Space in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino to catch an up-and-coming 5 piece out of San Diego known as Crash Encore.
Think Modest Mouse, if MM vocalist Isaac Brock/Curt Cobain (the Heart Shaped Box version)/Bob Dylan's (the Vaudeville-ian corpse edition) threeway love child were the lead singer and all the band members had more hair/stage presence.
Someone almost lost an eye to the headstock of a guitar, pinky-out on the water bottle drinkage was the attitude and even the old folks in dockers and leather bomber jackets bopped along to CE's short set.
Word is they're back Vegas side in March for the Neon Reverb Downtown music festival but our L.A. readers can check them out at the Silverlake Lounge next week: Wednesday, February 18th.
Visit their MySpace: and band website: for more info on their 52 songs in 2009 free MP3 email list promo and to check for performance dates, watch videos and listen to some tunes!
