The Cribs are incredible. I really enjoyed their "sound check party" where they took requests from a few fans and played some tracks from their first album. Their were unfortunately less than 200 people at the show, but the Jarman bros tore it up and even played a Replacements cover.   Next time they better have an encore!  I also forgot to ask Ryan(the lead guitarist) who's opening for Kate Nash on her American tour since the two have been dating. Damn. Anyways, The Cribs will be writing this summer and hopefully will have their forth album coming sometime early in 2009.  Their drummer Ross said, "we already have 4 songs recorded with Johnny Marr, were just looking to find time to record more."  I smell a full length album with new member Johnny Marr!  Screw Modest Mouse, The Cribs are better.

When catching a band as big as the cribs, I'm usually don't care for any of the openers, but these young group from NYC caught my attention.  I had seen Ra Ra Riot open for the Editors last year, and forgot how talented these musicians were.  They will be back on May 5th with the Little Ones at the entry.
