Alligator vs Crocodile (AVC) is a musical collective based in Portland Oregon. AVC consists of a rotating cast of musicians capable of producing an array of sounds and styles from original trio blues rock to genuine NOLA second lines. The flexible lineup allows us the opportunity to perform together at a wide variety of venues in addition to continuing our existing endeavors under the umbrella of AVC.
