THE GREAT CRUSADES
2/2/19 Saturday; 9 pm to midnight / $5
Rolling Stone’s David Fricke:
“The Great Crusades look at life through a shot-glass lens . . . mixing anger, muscle, and minor-key remorse like a roughneck Tindersticks with the bonus of a singer (Krumm) who’s got the tubercular pipes of Tom Waits and Axl Rose’s love child.”
The Great Crusades have released 9 full length records over the past two decades, have toured Europe more than 20 times, have appeared on Rockpalast in Germany, and have shared stages with a diverse list of artists including Gary Moore, The Scorpions, 16 Horsepower, Broken Social Scene, Bottle Rockets, Steve Wynn, and Leningrad Cowboys.
In October 2011, two of the band’s songs appeared in the season 4 finale of the HBO vampire series “True Blood.”
