The Crocodile, Freakout Records, & KEXP Present:
Freakout Weekender featuring Viagra Boys & FIDLAR

  • Viagra Boys

    Viagra Boys

    Punk

    Some say Viagra Boys is something akin to a looking glass pointed at the absurdum of existence and misconceptions of modern society - a depraved and ferociously bass-driven judgement on western civilization, a distorted 24/7 party on the acid highway whilst the world slowly rots away.
     
    Others claim they´re more like a gross joke on masculinity, gleefully serving up escapist narratives lacking any form of self-preservation; like an obfuscated back alley door into the backwaters of the human psyche.
     
    Metaphors aside, Viagra Boys is an unapologetically raw sextet comprised of classically trained jazz musicians, karaoke loving tattoo artists and seasoned hardcore scene veterans, churning out spastic, pulsating sounds from the sub levels of contemporary rock music - a bellowing, unstoppable force majeure of latter-day punk, PTSD disco and synthetically enhanced kraut.
     
    And as equal parts Iggy Pop and Hank Williams, singer and frontman Sebastian Murphy embodies all that which Viagra Boys are ultimately about; a fractured, perhaps disillusioned act, taped up and held together by inextinguishable bravado, explosive appearances and resourceful songwriting.
     
    With over 180 feverish live shows to support their latest release “Street Worms” under their belt, several Swedish Grammy nominations, an Impala Award for “European Independent Album Of the Year” and a spot at Coachella Festival 2020 in the bag, V**gra Boys are ready to unveil their new EP “Common Sense”.
  • FIDLAR

    FIDLAR

    Surf Rock

    Sure, life's a risk. But FIDLAR have proven that risks are worth taking. Starting out as a group of drunken punks playing gnarly house shows around Los Angeles, their fanbase exploded and congealed into "FIDIOTS." Fan's who show their dedication to both the band and their mantra of "fuck it" by etching "FIDLAR" onto their bodies by way of homemade stick-and-poke prison style tattoos.

    With songs like "Cheap Beer" and "Wake Bake Skate," the light speed rocket that was 2012's eponymous album blasted them into the stratosphere where they had the room to expand the idea of the band. Being thrust into the loneliness of space, they were confronted by the void and slog of touring. They responded to that introspection with 2015's "TOO," where songs like "40oz On Repeat" "Why Generation" and "Sober" grapple with how to age gracefully as hard partying punks headed towards their 30s.

    "Too" pushed the band further to the edges of their comfort zone where these four SoCal weirdos found themselves playing gigantic festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds. Propelling them to refine and expand their sound with 2019's "ALMOST FREE" where you can start to hear more than just their "punk and indie" influences. The Beastie Boys tinged "Get off My Rock." The asphalt-groovy take on L.A. hipster culture "Can't You See." And the alterna-pop, radio friendly, heartbreak duet of "Called You Twice" featuring grammy nominated artist K. Flay.

    But that was in "the before times..." During the pandemic, unable to tour as a band, the guys all separately dove into their own pet projects and they all experimented with different styles of music (sometimes with the aid of psychedelics). Unintentionally, this caused them to shake off the impulse to layer "bells and whistles" (not literally, but kinda) to their songs. Like they had been doing progressively over the years. Now, after duck-diving the choppy waves that is the modern music industry, FIDLAR are ready for the next gnarly set.

    Armed with 3 Chords, the truth, and some jazz cabbage, FIDLAR has a new found appreciation of not only where they came from, but where they are now. And when asked what the new sound is, the response is simply "FUCKBOI ANTHEMS."

    Well then... fuck it, dawg. Let's get weird.
  • White Denim

    White Denim

    Garage Rock

    In his 1942 essay The Myth of Sisyphus, Camus wrote that “All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant's revolving door.” 15 years later Richard Wayne Penniman wrote “Wop bop a loo bop a wop bam boom”, an undeniably powerful vocalization that on any given Wednesday in any given situation, civilized or otherwise, is still fully capable of setting somebody’s stuff aflame. Over ten years and seven long players into their career, White Denim are still in the relentless pursuit of a thread - in other words, a wick. 

    The Austin,Texas band have carefully and continuously studied the greatest records ever made, but they write songs just dumb enough to drink, dance, and fight to. Theirs is a music that aims for the whole body, while equally satisfying the mind. While it has morphed, expanded, and even burst apart, White Denim’s sincere and human drive and ability to spark true rock & roll exhilaration have been unerring constants of the band’s 10-year existence.  

    “White Denim are one of the best live bands you will ever see if you live to be a million. That’s not excitable hyperbole, merely a bald statement of undeniable fact...” — Time Out

    “The last great rock & roll band!” — The Guardian

  • Kristine Leschper

    Kristine Leschper

    Music

    Kristine Leschper is an interdisciplinary artist working in sound, text, image, and performance. Her work positions itself around the spectacle of the human condition, deeply interested in questions of meaning-making, womanhood, socio-ecological systems, and the wielding of power. Her personal philosophies around music-making approach the sonic landscape as an object with shape, dimension and weight. She has presented over 250 live performances across the US, UK, and Europe.

    Leschper’s The Opening, Or Closing Of A Door, due March 4 via ANTI/Epitaph, is a paean to the sensory world. It’s the first Leschper has released under her given name, having retired the moniker Mothers after eight years of performing and releasing music under it. Though both projects are guided by Leschper’s idiosyncratic approach to songwriting, they couldn’t sound more different. While Mothers drew inspiration from the stark, skeletal sounds of post-punk and contemporary folk, Leschper’s new work is practically baroque, integrating an array of synthesizers, strings, woodwinds, and over a dozen percussive instruments.
