Econoline Crush brings crowd back to the ’90s

But local rock band Sleeping With Tuesday were up first with a spirited set of originals off their two CDs as well as some creative covers of ’80s hits like “Ghostbusters.”

 I caught half of Econoline Crush‘s ’90s style industrial tinged, detuned post grunge music.

 Most of the well-ordered audience was standing on the dance floor, careful not to cross the taped line stating “Do Not Cross”  which acted as a barrier between them and the band.

They seemed to be enjoying themselves listening to a variety of newer, upbeat Econoline Crush songs and hits including “Wicked,” which drew rousing cheers as well as their big one “You Don’t Know What It’s Like.”

I liked one called “I Don’t Care.”

There were plenty of big, loud detuned riffs from guitarists Robert Morfitt and Ziggy Sigmund while lead singer Trevor Hurst leaped all over the stage howling with impressively anguished pipes.
