The Wakefield brothers have come to Austin[/] for the third time, graduating to the celebrated Stubbï¿½s barbeque venue following two years of playing smaller shows.
Earlier in the day, The Cribs played a SXSW show at La Zona Rosa, delighting the crowd with a set of rollocking indie rock.
This year’s SXSW visit, particularly the Stubbï¿½s show, was beefier than in the past. After only arriving in Austin yesterday (March 13), where they watched MGMT at the Playboy party, The Cribs played their second of two shows before driving to New Orleans for a another gig.
Among the crowd today were Nathan Followill of Kings Of Leon, Jason Stollsteimer of The Von Bondies and The Cribsï¿½ singer/guitarist Ryan Jarmanï¿½s girlfriend, Kate Nash, who plays her own show tomorrow.
During the gig, bassist Gary Jarman mysteriously commented: ï¿½The DGC hardcore came out and did it Cow Palace style.’ He promised that a select group of people around the world will understand what this means.
The Cribs played:
ï¿½Don’t You Wanna Be Relevantï¿½
ï¿½Our Bovine Publicï¿½
ï¿½Girls Like Mysteryï¿½
ï¿½I’m A Realistï¿½
