Eyes rolling to the back of heads, body shakes and even backbends were just a few elements that created Starcrawler’s surreal performance at SLO Brew Rock on Thursday.
Los Angeles-born Starcrawler is an American rock band composed of lead singer Arrow de Wilde, guitarist Henri Cash, bassist Tim Franco, drummer Seth Carolina and pedal steel Bill Cash.
The band played a mix of their older music along with some of their more recent songs such as Roadkill and Stranded, which are both a part of their latest album She Said.
Everything served as a prop for dancing — whether it was the instruments, the microphone stand or the stage floor. Their sound followed a loud-quiet-loud-again style while Wilde jerked her body to the beat. At the end of every song, she would often collapse to the floor, then proceed to rise slowly. The movement appeared as a sort of organized chaos.
Wilde and company created an interactive performance for all those who attended. At one point, she even hopped the fence to hug members of the crowd, while Henri Cash followed behind her with his guitar to shred in the audience.
The band is currently on tour with Sad girl, who opened for the show. They will be performing next in Sacramento, delivering supernatural performances throughout California.
Starcrawler has released three albums, “Starcrawler,” “Devour You,” and their latest, “She Said.” Their music is available through all listening platforms, including Spotify and Apple Music.
