Crocodile Tears, Moving Panoramas, Sweet Spirit @ Barracuda

Spacetime is a tangled web of a four dimensional continuum. I can’t seem to keep track at what speed anything is traveling. I suppose it is all an illusion and I am mesmerized by its grandeur and can’t keep my eyes off of it.

But then again I could just be making excuses for my procrastination!

Okay, so let’s get on with it!

The Cosmic Clash has some cool videos featuring Crocodile Tears, Moving Panoramas, and Sweet Spirit.

Thank you David Olivenbaum for being the second set of eyes!

Crocodile Tears

I met Rudy back in El Paso when there were no borders and the drugs were plentiful! That is the extent of my humor. But for real, Rudy has always been an awesome songwriter and plays with some pretty amazing guys. Crocodile Tears reminds me of that late 60’s, 70’s, Thin Lizzy sound. Crocodile Tears is bad ass on stage and their Rock n Roll won’t let you down.

Moving Panoramas

Once in awhile I get into a listening frenzy and will listen to album after album. My morning routine usually involves the stereo before coffee and at work the first thing I do is put on my headphones.

There are times when an album catches my ear and I put it on repeat for like a week. It could be the lyrics that I find poetic or it could be that sound that interacts with my soul.

Moving Panorama’s album One, is one of those albums. From open to close it is an awesome piece of art and most definitely needs to be in your collection.

Aside from the album, Leslie Sisson is totally one of my favorite rock stars! She hangs with the best like Stevie Nicks, Joan Jett, Karen O, or Siouxsie Sioux.  Leslie’s stage antics and interactions with the crowd are superb. Her performance at Barracuda was awesome! I loved how she let the sound of her guitar fill up the room while she interacted with her band during the song Harmony. She put on a rock star experience by banging her guitar to keep the sound going!

Start the video at 8:49 and you will see what I mean.

I also caught The Moving Panoramas at a show at Cheer-up Charlies where she played a couple of new songs! Yay! She even let me keep the playlist!

Sweet Spirit

Sweet Spirit is one of those bands that leaves you in a daze wondering what the hell just happened. Lead singer Sabrina Ellis kills it everytime, it is like watching an explosion slowly unraveling then engulfing the entire scene. She is a staple in the Austin scene and I dare say one of the best in the country. With an eight member band you can imagine the manifestation of energy that was in the room. Sweet Spirit had the crowd cheering, jumping around and singing along.  I recommend to catch them at a live show, but you have to be in the midst of the crowd to get a sense of the craziness.

Check out their performance at Barracuda.
