Photos and Review: The Cribs at the Roundhouse London 10/28/15

At the time of writing this post, it’s now almost a week since my wife and I were in London pretending like we lived there. It was on the evening of October 28th that we found ourselves at Roundhouse watching West Yorkshire’s The Cribs in front a fairly riled up crowd.

Now I’d be lying if I said I was fully versed in the music of The Cribs. Prior to arriving at the gig I had only heard snippets here and there that my wife had played me, but I liked what I heard and needles to say I was excited to be able to take in a live performance in the UK.

The Cribs set did not let me down and I had a fantastic time! It was quite the adrenaline rush being in the crowded photo pit dodging beers being tossed in tandem with punk riffs and Weezerish vocals. The fans on the other side of the barricade were clearly enveloped by their tunes and I was too.

They actually have quite a lot material, going all the way back to their 2004 self-titled up until their 6th and most current album, For All My Sisters. Their entire set never really let up and they surely made a new fan that night, as I left Roundhouse on my way to the tube with an autographed vinyl and a shirt in hand.

Seeing The Cribs live was undoubtedly one of the highlights of our trip to London and I look forward to catching them stateside, as you should t0o.
