CONTEST – The Cribs @ Lee’s Palace – April 11, 2012
Steve GullickWho: The Cribs
What: Band of brothers who for a while included in their ranks a brother from another mother – Johnny Marr of The Smiths – but are now back down to being an all-Jarman affair.
Why: Having taken a short hiatus following 2009’s Ignore The Ignorant, the band returns In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull, out May 8. Which is a good while after this show takes place, but what can you do.
When: Wednesday, April 11, 2012
Where: Lee’s Palace in Toronto (19+)
Who else: The Hounds Below – whose bandleader you may recall from The Von Bondies – will support.
How: Tickets for the show are $17.50 in advance but courtesy of +1, I’ve got one pair of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want The Cribs” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and have that in to me before midnight, April 8.
What else: The Oregonian has an interview with Gary Jarman of the band and there’s a career-spanning 5-track sampler of the band available to download for free. Follow the band on Twitter, like them on Facebook and catch them on this North American tour:
