The Bowery Presents Live Features Tribes

May 29th, 2012


Johnny Lloyd (vocals and guitar), Jim Cratchley (bass and vocals), Miguel Demelo (drums) and Dan White (guitar and vocals) began playing together as Tribes in 2010. The London quartet put out a four-song, swagger-filled EP, We Were Children, the following year before the release of their debut LP, the riff-and-hook-heavy Baby, this past winter. As the featured band today on The Bowery Presents Live, Lloyd and Cratchley do a stripped-down acoustic take on the anthemic “We Were Children,” above, at Ludlow Guitars on the Lower East Side. And make sure you subscribe to The Bowery Presents Live for live-streamed shows, acoustic performances and interviews—like the guys in Tribes talking about listening to Led Zeppelin and trying to sound like Jimmy Page.
