Stellar reviews from both Mike Prevatt, Las Vegas Weekly and Jason Bracelin, Review Journal
Opener “Youngest Blood” deviates from ACOSA’s usual four-on-the-floor anchor, only to return to it with gusto during its climax—Megan Wingerter simultaneously matching Tony Sermeno’s drum gallop with her violin—before reprising the breakbeat. ~Mike Prevatt, Las Vegas Weekly

The music of A Crowd of Small Adventures is posited on texture and story with stirring harmonies and violin flourishes. They have been described as having Arcade Fire-like fervor, producing doom-laden Joy Division pop and Postal Service-meets-Queen rock.
Their first full-length was released in 2010 to overwhelmingly positive reviews. “There was no better example of musical perfection and pleasure in 2010 than A Crowd of Small Adventures’ A Decade in X-Rays, their second CD release. The quartet smartly fine-tuned these nine alt-pop songs…… and the result is a flawless album. “….the album is fantastic and so are they." Mike Prevatt, Las Vegas City Life
“Wilcox sings as if he were trying to dislodge his heart from his throat, his words setting the tone for an immediate yet nuanced record that’s one of the best releases to come from Las Vegas this year.” Jason Bracelin, Las Vegas Review Journal.
A Crowd of Small Adventures was voted the Best Local Rock Band in 2011 by both readers and editors alike in the Las Vegas Review Journal’s Best of Las Vegas issue.
The band is currently recording their next release, a five song EP ranging from sweeping string-filled chamber rock to upbeat punk-inspired indie.
