    Yeah, I seen them with the Kaiser Chiefs nearly two years ago and they were pretty intense. The music isnt life changing but they will for sure put on a great show.l

    saw them with death cab and franz ferdinand and uh... were fun live but their music doesn't hold up for me. who ever the heck their singer is repeatedly bashed his face on the microphone and began bleeding every where... he was almost trying too hard. BUT i must admit... mirror kisses = good tune.

    Im gonna see them for sure, but only because of Johnny Marr. I've seen Morrissey, seen Andy Rourke (DJ set) at the Dome 07, and will see Marr soon. I'm still missing Mike Joyce. If I can't see the Smiths together, I can see them one at a time.

    I've seen Marr with Modest Mouse. You didn't catch that? I've seen The Cribs a couple times, but never with Marr, it should be interesting. I'm contemplating going to the Show in S.F. next week. The Cribs are one of the best live bands I've ever seen.

    Not only are they a phenomenal live act but their new album is gold, for two reasons primarily: More mature sound than their somewhat "punkish" first two albums AND Marr's trademark jangle of course.

    They were on Letterman. It's not very impressive music, but Johnny Marr rules.

    Saw them live at some fest a year or two ago. The kid loved 'em and got autographs... I thought they sounded like every other poorly-sung skinny-jeaned band out there... with maybe a little more catchiness. Like, with better vocals, there might be something.

    Anyhow, she's excited to see them again, and I like this comic thing, so power to The Cribs.

    Love the Cribs. Saw them at Popscene SF and going to their show at Bimbo's. Not sure if Johnny Marr will play with them at either the SF date or at Coachella.

    I was at the Popscene show. I also saw them at Slims a while ago. I'm going to try to make the Bimbo's show.

    Johnny will be at Bimbo's and at Coachella. He is a full fledged member of The Cribs now.

    the chorus for "Man's Needs" was in my head all yesterday. Sneaks up on you. Like an unexpected telemarketer call.

    I missed that Slim's show but my buddy said it was great. Esp looking forward to seeing them at Bimbo's, as they might conflict at Coachella. Last year right before the fest, I saw White Lies/Friendly Fires at Slims, which was great because White Lies conflicted with the Ting Tings.
