Very welcome news here. British indie outfit The Cribs have released news that they’re coming to Hong Kong next month. The trio will be playing This Town Needs (formerly Hidden Agenda) in Yau Tong on May 15.
Why is this awesome? The Cribs successfully distinguished themselves from the outrageous number of other indie acts that were all over the place throughout the noughties by maintaining a more alternative, garage-tinged rawness to their sound. It was that and that one particularly memorable, largely spoken word track with Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth (sorry, we had to mention it, it’s great).
Advance tickets are available now for $320 from Ticketflap.
