The Cribs to Headline Free Show at Chicago's Cubby Bear Saturday August 7, Lollapalooza Weekend

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2010) - Wakefield + Portland + Manchester = melodic punk rock four piece The Cribs, who finally return to the US and will supplement their Sunday August 8 main stage Lollapalooza performance with a free show at the legendary Cubby Bear, Saturday night August 7 for the American fans who have been waiting to see the band. The 21+ show will occur after the festival is over for the night so that fans can make it back uptown for this special, intimate club show. 2010 has been a banner year for The Cribs, who have won glowing accolades in support of their best-selling album yet, IGNORE THE IGNORANT. Other achievements include undertaking their biggest North American headlining shows to date and their career high-watermark, largest show anywhere last month at the 40th Glastonbury Festival in England.

On our side of the world, IGNORE THE IGNORANT also garnered critical love and major US radio airplay behind the track, "We Share The Same Skies."

"... An even more awesome Brit-popdream... They've also expanded their Strokes-Libertines sounds to include thornier alt-rock moods, somewhere between New Order and Nirvana, and perfect for singer Gary Jarman's come-ons. The Cribs are following a forked path to a great catharsis." -- Rolling Stone

"Mostly brilliant... they are able to paint outside the lines with the added shadings, nodding to Sonic Youth and The Smiths." -- Spin Magazine

Triumphant late night TV appearances included "The Late Show with David Letterman" and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" only fueled further passion from the band's ever-growing loyal stateside fanbase. At press time, these are the only confirmed US live dates for 2010 so don't miss The Cribs this summer.
