Tonight in Seattle: Brothers From Another, Lana, Emery and more!Posted by James Reeves
Sometimes it not just a band performing at a show, but rather an experience where the audience is drawn into the performance so much that they experience something extraordinary. Lana is one of those bands that can do that to an audience. The three-piece indie/prog rock group features the melancholic, effects-laden vocals of bassist Richard Noir over what can only be described as a wall of sound that is much larger than a three-piece. The effect is the appearance of one massive song throughout their set, never relenting for even a second. Check out Lana with guests The Sidecars, The Pilot Lights, Spaceman, Fly!, and Born of Ghosts at Chop Suey!
When discussing certain rock bands, it’s appropriate to draw certain parallels between acts, and while mostly avoiding the stigma of a “Christian rock band,” Emery manages to take elements from Underoath and arrange them into a post-hardcore setting. The five-piece combines the verse screaming of guitarist Toby Morrell over a tight rhythm section with the harmonizing sung chorus lyrics of multiple band members, creating a nice contrast between the pieces of the song. If you’re a fan of post-hardcore/metal/hard rock, check out Emery, supported by Monsters Scare You!, Citizens, Ghost Ship and Reach for the Sky.

Tonight is the headlining debut for local rappers Brother From Another. The group is made up of primarily two emcees, Tiglo Goonstar and Cole, with the humorous and energetic DJ Beeba as well. Their fun and youthful verses thrive in a live setting as they have demonstrated by opening for many local favorites in the area like The Physics and Blue Scholars. Tonight is their chance to shine as they headline at The Crocodile with Shelton Harris and Dave B opening. With them they will be bringing copies of their latest EP Taco Tuesday.
