UK indie rockers, The Cribs are set to hit our shores for a brief tour starting with an appearance at next week's annual Tomorrow Never Knows series in Chicago. Already a fantastic band, the former trio made news last year for adding a guitarist to the mix. That is not normally a big deal, but when the axe-man in question is ex-Smiths' legend Johnny Marr, you tend to take note. Hot on the heels of the newly released, Marr-fuelled, Ignore The Ignorant, the band is set to unleash their brilliance here at the following dates, through January:
13 Chicago, IL - Lincoln Hall !
14 Ferndale, MI - The Magic Bag !
15 Toronta, ONT - Phoenix Theatre !
16 New York, NY - Irving Plaza !
17 Boston, MA - Paradise Rock Club !
19 Washington, DC - 9.30 Club !
20 Atlanta, GA - The Earl !
22 Dallas, TX - Granada Theatre !
23 Austin, TX - The Parish !
26 Pomona, CA - The Glass House *
27 San Francisco, CA - Bimbo 365 *
29 Portland, OR - Wonder Ballroom *
30 Seattle, WA - Showbox Theatre *
31 Vancouver, BC - The Venue *

Be sure to catch them while they're here, and head on over to Filter (here) to register to win a Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special Guitar - the same kind Marr plays.
