    In the past year at fibbers in york, I have been to see quite a few bands who are just on the cusp of becoming big like the ordinary boys, the cribs, jet plane landing, the blueskins, the future kings of spain, my red cell, the ludes, the futureheads and some bigger bands like badly drawn boy and gomez. Not to mention seeing the cribs playing in a kitchen in a halifax college kitchen. Upcoming gigs at fibbers, in august, include the blueskins, the 5,6,7,8's (i.e kill bill), radio 4 and hell is for heroes. So, if you come to york and you are into your music, you can see a lot of good new bands, that will give you a chance to say, 'I was there when there were only twenty other people watching them' i.e the libertines in 2002. While, Leeds and Manchester are not that far away and cost £5 and £10 return on the train, respectively.

    Ooh Fibbers is great! The Killers were there not so long ago and they had some great support acts too. I'd always thought York had quite a good indie scene (as a city) they produced shed seven who, since splitting, have formed a couple of other bands I believe. x
