The Cribs at O2 Kentish Forum

The Cribs played in O2 Forum in Kentish town yesterday night and I think it was the best gig of my life. A bold statement, I’m aware. My 5 year old self would probably be questioning that and asking about how great it was to meet Charlie Simpson from Busted as a young ‘un. But this was wild. Sweaty, loud and messy. Everything that a truly good concert should be.

The moment they came on stage, the energy was wild. As they immediately started singing ‘Our Bovine Public’, the crowd was roaring.¬†Everyone¬†knew the lyrics to every song, with hands up in the air and moshing from every direction. Not a phone in sight, just pure pleasure from the thousands of sweaty people all enjoying a night of music together.

The band played their ‘Mens Needs, Womens Needs, Whatever’ album back to back with a few extra classics at the end, such as ‘Mirror Kisses’ and ‘Fairer Sex’. Every single song had the crowd wanting more and screaming their lungs out – I’m genuinely surprised my voice is still working today.

This was definitely a night to remember forever. It’s a true gem to find a band that still performs with passion and love with a crowd that is still just as excited as they were 10 years ago.
