Carl Barat played his debut UK solo headline show in the Wakefield Escobar last night (March 6). Barat, formerly of The Libertines and Dirty Pretty Things. played songs by both bands as part of the set. The frontman had played a secret solo show at Glastonbury last summer and had supported Glasvegas in the USA in January, but last night's show was the first time he had topped the bill on his own anywhere. Songs Barat played as part of his set included 'I Get Along', 'What A Waster', 'Deadwood', 'Bucket Shop' and 'Time For Heroes'.
He plays again at the same venue tonight. See Escobarwakefield.co.uk for more information.
