Rough Trade Records hosted Welsh rockers Those Damn Crows this week. The Quintet of musicians from Bridgend are currently touring the UK and stopped off in Nottingham’s bohemian district with its collection of independent bars and cafes. The queue of eager fans waiting to greet the band stretched down the street into the distance.
As the crowd made their way into the top floor venue, they headed to the small stage at the rear. It was only a short wait until Those Damn Crows took to the stage. Shane Greenall joked that the mass of people in front of him in the Rough Trade record shop was bigger than the attendance at their gig in Bradford the night before. Those Damn Crows went on to provide an excellent acoustic performance of ‘See You Again’ and ‘This Time I’m Ready’ with Shane really highlighting his vocal talents.
After the short performance Those Damn Crows met their fans signed copies of Inhale/Exhale which they had purchased in its first week of release and posed for countless selfies with the 150 or so fans in the venue. I’m sure the Welsh musicians will be looking forward to the reception they will receive from their Nottingham fan base when they return later in the year to Rock City on June 19th. See you there guys!
Due to phenomenal demand, THOSE DAMN CROWS have also added some new dates to their series of instores around the UK next month, which kick off on album release day!
