Crash Kings were supposed to play a Seattle show back in September but they had to cancel, disappointing fans who had waited three years for them to return to the 206. The extra wait proved worthwhile as the Los Angeles power trio laid waste to the Crocodile with a raucous set to close out the holiday weekend.

In some respects rescheduling to a sleepy Sunday night was kind of a bum deal for the band but plenty of people showed up regardless and the Crash Kings did their best to rock away any remaining tryptophan hangover.

The band — brothers Antonio and Michael Beliveau and drummer Tommy Roslak — used the screaming “Dressed To The 9′s” from this year’s “Dark of the Daylight” to announce themselves and immediately got the crowd moving. Lead singer Tony looked like a shaggy version of Nick Miller from Fox’s “New Girl,” sounded like a cross between Adam Levine and Brian Johnson and exuded the swagger of “Iron Man” Tony Stark. There are far worse fates.
