Past attempts to summarize the sound of every single band participating in the Crawl in one sentence proved a dismal failure. Some bands inevitably felt slighted, others were pissed that our descriptions didn't match their own delusions of adequacy. So what follows are short, highly subjective profiles of performers we consider to be just a few of the many highlights of this year's Alibi
Fall Crawl. The reality, though, is that there are something like 100 different artists playing, and we encourage you to discover new favorite bands using your own intuition. If you or your band are profiled herein and are still unhappy with the description, buy an ad, you malcontent, and tell us all what you think you sound like. Call John Hankinson at 346-0660 ext. 265 to reserve your ad space today!
Tween bands generally sound their age. Not this particular group of tweens. ATG (a.k.a. Against the Grain) won both the New Mexico Showcase and 103.3 The Zone's battle of the bands in 2003 and released their first proper album just a few months ago. Call them metal prodigies if you must, but ATG perform more like veterans. One of the best metal bands in the city. (MH)
