The Cribs play their biggest ever SXSW show

The Jarman brothers play second gig of the day in Texas

The Cribs played their biggest ever SXSW show tonight (March 15) at Stubb’s BBQ in Austin, Texas, taking the stage at 11pm (CMT).

The Wakefield brothers have come to Austin[/] for the third time, graduating to the celebrated Stubb�s 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 Stubb�s 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 Cribs� singer/guitarist Ryan Jarman�s girlfriend, Kate Nash, who plays her own show tomorrow.

During the gig, bassist Gary Jarman mysteriously commented: �The 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:

�Don’t You Wanna Be Relevant�

�Our Bovine Public�


�Hey Scenesters!�

�Girls Like Mystery�

�Women�s Needs�

�Moving Pictures�

�Men’s Needs�

�Mirror Kissers�

�Another Number�

�I’m A Realist�

�Ancient History�
