Crash Kings: Almost Royalty

Pianist/vocalist Antonio and bassist Mike Beliveau are brothers from Boston who formed Crash Kings in Los Angeles in 2006. Their deconstructed and guitar-free approach to music is as much punkish garage rock as it is light, piano-driven pop. Lack of funding forced them to turn to their fans for help, but after a highly successful Kickstarter campaign, they were able to release their second full-length, Dark Of The Daylight, on June 18. The doors of the Bowery Ballroom open at 8 p.m. for their July 31 18+ show. Tickets are $15 in advance and $17 on the day of.
