So, for those who like the bands that go to Croc Rock (read: metal/rap/GWAR?) it’s fine and dandy. Dirty, but dandy.
Now it’s alcoholless due to a 2009 shooting and that doesn’t seem like something they would be able to weather.
Crocodile Rock Cafe patrons accustomed to accompanying music with a beer are in for some sobering news.
State records indicate the Allentown venue’s liquor license is inactive, meaning the four-room club cannot serve alcohol to concertgoers and other patrons. Attempts to reach owner Joe Clark and club representatives were unsuccessful. Clark has owned the cafe since 1999, according to the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board. SOURCE: The Express-Times
I kinda almost miss the days I would go to Croc Rock to see bands like Nonpoint and Sevendust. Sure, it smelled like a bicycle seat, but it was what it was: a place locally that would get marginally popular acts that yound adults and teens were into.
But, like anything, Croc Rock eventually turns into a place you used to go to and a place you’ll make fun of because it’s kinda gross. It’s basically your past. People are still there, but you don’t want to see them.
