Hot Blooded Reptiles: Crocodiles @ The Rickshaw, 8/19/09

The Rickshaw is an out of sight, out of mind venue for me. I’ve seen some phenomenal shows here: M.I.A., Goblin Cock….but it’s generally the epicenter for the hip young crowd where scene is first and music is second. Which means HRC only goes there for must see shows. I walk in to the venue […]
