Crooked Teeth at the Raccoon Motel -- June 15.

Thursday, June 15, 7 p.m.

Raccoon Motel, 315 East Second Street, Davenport IA

With Already Heard calling them "energetic and intriguing" and Spinning Thoughts praising the band's 2018 EP Honey for the way the musicians "infuse electronic elements and catchy choruses," the California-based Crooked Teeth headlines a June 15 concert at Davenport's Raccoon Motel, with Gig Goer adding that the band members "have clearly got a knack for creating some very catchy and enticing music."

As stated on the Rude Records Web site, "Crooked Teeth offer a unique blend of eclectic yet gratifying mixture of pop punk, emo, and alternative sounds to engage the listener with thought-provoking lyrics. The band, formed in 2016, is comprised of Tyson Evans, Adam Miranda, and Adam Galindo. Upon forming, the band set out to record Out Here, a Lone with producer/engineer/mixer Matt Lang with additional percussion by Andy Rodesney and mastering with Mike Kalijian. The EP is a culmination of emotions for front-man Tyson Evans after his previous band, Second To Last, were wrapping up a tour. Tyson and his fellow bandmates, went on to record the EP in three days and is a raw emotional take on life, love, stress, doubt, fear, and social instability. With much success, the band went on to open for As It Is at the iconic Chain Reaction, which led to shows with This Wild Life and a performance at Emo Nite LA.

"In spring 2017, the band hit the road with Such a Mess before re-entering the studio to record their follow-up EP Pastel. The three track EP was produced and mixed by Matt Lang with mastering by Kris Crummett at Interlace Audio. Idobi Radio stated that the EP 'will have you so hooked all you’ll wanna do is play these songs for everyone you know.' Tyson Evans expanded on this musical direction by stating that the 'EP felt like a formal introduction to the world.' Immediately following the EP launch, the band hit the road for a regional tour with Stickup Kick and Glacier Veins before making another appearance at Emo Nite LA. To celebrate, the band went on a headlining tour spanning the entire U.S. with spot dates opening for Welcome Home, Aaron West & the Roaring Twenties, Shortly, Anarbor, Sundressed, and Chase Huglin."
