Seattle Weekly's Description

After re-opening last spring, the Crocodile (the "Cafe" part of the name is dead, to signify that this is, in fact, a different venue than the one we knew) is now one of the few venues in the city that boasts a truly eclectic show schedule: performers who've graced the Croc's stage in the near-year it's been open run the gamut from the Blue Scholars to Steve Earle. In the Belltown desert of nasty meat market clubs populated by bros and trashy girls who think ugly Coach bags, fake tans and over-waxed eyebrows are classy, the Crocodile is a welcome music lovers' oasis. While music feeds the soul, you better not count on filling your belly when you hit this legendary venue. There are some decent restaurants just down the block. Go across the street and grab some tapas at Pintox.

    I would like to come down there, but, I found out that the Seattle Weekly is a promoter of this. Seattle Weekly is the #1 Promoter of prostitution and sexual slavery on America. Will Seattle Weekly be there selling and recruiting new prostitutes and pimps? Or will this be a safe location where Seattle Weekly's people cannot continue to promote rape.

    Legendary nightclub that has featured then-unknowns such as Nirvana and Soundgarden. Long list of who's-whos has played here, including Beastie Boys, R.E.M., Death Cab for Cutie and Modest Mouse.

    Use the bathroom and remember what it was like at the old Croc.
