The Cribs are an excellent three piece indie band of twin brothers Gary and Ryan Jarman and their little brother Ross Jarman.
I have to also add that 7th Street Entry is quite tiny (250 capacity), a bit of a downgrade from their previous show in Minneapolis. Still, everyone out last night, they all wanted to be there.
As for The Cribs, we've been following them since we started. Surprisingly, they did a good mixup of old favorite hits like 2005's "Hey Scenesters!" to 2007's "Men's Needs" to 2008's "I'm a Realist" to current "Chi-Town" (this song will probably go over well in Chicago).
Highlight of the show was "Men's Needs", the song spawned a massive singalong. Shortly after they started their final song, "City of Bugs", the youthful crowd, went apesh***, and started to slamdance. While on stage, the band did their trash-destruction-thing, you know, it's all just rock 'n roll.
The Cribs' fifth album, In the Belly of the Brazen Bull will be out May 7th, 2012, via Wichita Recordings. Some of those new songs on this tour, they sound fantastic live, in particular "Come On, Be A No One", which we previewed last month.
NOTE: Johnny Marr is not with the band any longer, so those hoping to touch the ex-Smiths are out of luck.
PS: Gary mentioned how much they love Minneapolis. When he was a kid, he said Babes in Toyland was his favorite band. Then when he got older, he said The Replacements were his heroes. What? No Prince? :)
