Tribes: Home-coming headline show

It seems that everywhere they go Tribes attract an expectant crowd humming with the sense that they are on the edge of a moment, about to be part of something special. In the year that promised the guitar band revival, Tribes have come out to show us exactly what this should be all about, creating moments of Camden magic at every opportunity.

They set the scene here back in the spring with their roof top video recording of the anthemic ‘We Were Children’, and a packed-out gig at Dingwalls. A summer of energetic festival appearances around the country followed, and last week they returned as part of an extensive tour, ready to be crowned the kings of Camden with a headline show at the Electric Ballroom.

The home crowd was treated to much loved ready-made classics such as ‘Sappho’ and ‘Coming of Age’, interspersed with lesser known songs such as ‘Himalaya’, due to be included in their debut album Baby in January. This new material reaffirmed the sense that the band have their sights set on yet bigger and better things – they’ve put in the hard graft and 2012 will be the year that they should comfortably be able to establish themselves as one of the UK’s most refreshing new live acts.

If you haven’t seen Tribes do their thing yet then you need to get on it – they always look like they’re having a ball and will make a proper effort to make sure you do too. The band are due back next for the Wheelbarrow’s shindig on December 31 at the HMV Forum – definitely the best NYE party on offer in Camden so far.

  1. A rut and a grave are the same its only the depth that varies.I see you at times fall into the rut of depisar, and then I see how time and again you heave , claw yourself out.In discovering true self this seems to be a requirement. one, needs to visit the dark to truly relish the light.My personal journey has not been different. as the budda says Aneecha….all is aneecha impermanence. Well done on showing the world what can be achieved by believing in self.

  2. Articles like this really grease the shafts of knowledge.

  3. I found just what I was needed, and it was entertaining!

  4. Hi Rena, what a fabulous card and so cveler. I love your thinking behind this so very original. Beautiful warm summer colours and beautifully crafted. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Get Creative and good luck.Marie

  5. Interesting debate beewten Dogwood and Garou; both are roughly correct from their individual perspectives. The major point neglected is that the chores/activity/”payment” aspects of doing chores (housework) simply do not create female libido. They may- if she has decided to be receptive for whatever reasons she has for being receptive- remove the barriers to intimacy. They don’t create sex drive.The only thing that generally makes a woman want to make love is the decision, that is, she chooses to. Women, with a few hypertestosteronal exceptions, are simply are not like men, period. If you are lucky enough that your wife chooses to meet that part of the deal that you thought you were making when marrying, great. But all this nonsense about housework, being sweet, massages, etc., are only about improving receptive willingness, not creating a drive to Do It.

  6. Je serai en France dans pas très longtemps donc je tente ma chance pour une fois (et pas des moindres!).Je vote (presque) tous les jours pour ton Blog pour le concours Elle et je n’oublie pas de le rappeler à mes amis facebook fans de LVB… alors bonne chance Mathilde!!! Tu mérites vraiment de gagner.Et encore merci pour tes super conseils, même si Marcos apprécie un tout petit peu moins mes nouvelles dépenses « Clinique & Co. » pour notre wallet depuis mes lectures attentives de tes articles, mais pour le résultat sur ma peau il est conquis! Et moi donc…Bises de nous 2

  7. This is fantastic. I like the bold names for the big top-chompers. Can we please have a naming contest or poll for the next one? It takes a village to name a tooth, you know. Or, in the alternative, can I buy naming rights for the next one? Perhaps corporate sponsorship could earn you some extra cash – the Barnes and Noble Bicuspid or the McDonalds Molar? Toothpaste companys would probably be most interested, but I couldn’t think of any alliteration for Crest or AquaFresh, but I bet you can.Hannah

  8. That’s an ingenious way of thinking about it.

  9. C’est formidableQuel chef d’état peut se vanter de faire une annonce historique… en latin?Franchement, quelle institution peut appliquer une « procédure » prévue dans son droit et qui n’a pas été utilisée depuis le XIII ou le XIV siècle (pour le pape Grégoire, je ne me souviens plus de la date).Quel panache!!!!Qui meditabitur in lege Domini die ac nocte, dabit fructum suum in tempore suo.

  10. This shows real expertise. Thanks for the answer.

  11. Just the type of insight we need to fire up the debate.

  12. Carol,I know you don’t know me, but I am a friend of your mom’s. I am also a Reiki Master and have been sending you healing energy since Sherrie told us about the cancer. There isn’t a day that I don’t think of you, even though we have never met. I am pulling for you and hope that you can beat all the odds and come through with flying colors. Healing hugs Sandy

  13. Was totally stuck until I read this, now back up and running.
