While the closure of this local institution was a blow to the spirit of the community at large, no one took a harder hit than loyal employees like longtime general manager/Jedi Knight of Security Kevin Watson, beloved engineer Jim Anderson, and workaholic booking agent Eli Anderson. Tonight, former Croc booking agent Pete Greenberg has coordinated a benefit to raise funds for these and other Croc refugees at his new post over at Chop Suey. Its a damn fine line-up that also includes two of the artists that inadvertently played the Crocodiles final show, Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes and J. Tillman, along with Damien Jurado, Peter Parker, Pale Pacific, Siberian, and the Pleasureboaters. HANNAH LEVIN
