Band play debut album and rare demo songs in Leeds
The gig was the first of three consecutive live shows the band are playing at the venue, during which they will play one of their three albums in their entirety.
Last night the band played their debut, self-titled album.
Before the band took the stage, Franz Ferdinand played a short live set including ‘Matinee’, ‘Michael’ and ‘Take Me Out’, plus four brand new songs, including ‘Can’t Stop This Feeling’.
Before playing their debut album, The Cribs performed five tracks which originally comprised the band’s first demo, including ‘I’m Gonna Go To LA’ – the song being debuted live six years after it was written.
The Cribs will perform their second album, ‘The New Fellas’, tonight (20) at the same venue.
Another surprise support band is rumoured, so check back on NME.COM later today to find out who.
