Brooklyn’s The Boggs kicked off the show last night at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia and set the bar very high with a set of highly percussive double drummed indie rock. Amazing. A band I will definitley be looking to see again. White Rabbits were up next and were a bit of a let down, pretty much phoning it in for the first 3/4 of their set. After someone in the house bought the band a round of shots they played the last few songs like they really mattered. Blistering versions of The Plot from their latest record, and a cover of Bob Dylan’s Maggie’s Farm were amazing. Obviously they can pull it off if they want too, maybe next time.
Last up was The Cribs who I had extremely high expectations for after listening to ther great new record Men’s Needs,Women Need’s,Whatever. They blew threw my expectations ten fold and played with an onstage fury I haven’t seen in a long time. The same type of energy level The Ramones used to put out, absolutely amazing, go see them if you can, they won’t be playing small venues for long.
Here’s a few photos from the show.
