Once again, this year’s Crossfire Halloween Massacre in association with Vans did not disappoint.
This boat party was held on the Thames at the Battersea Barge who we have to apologise to after Nottingham’s incendiary device Baby Godzilla incited a full scale riot on board the good ship. People hanging from the rafters and bodies flying everywhere destroyed cables that led to a surge of electricity and shorted the boat’s power supply. Sparks flew as a result and thankfully nobody was hurt but the party was shut down for a while whilst everyone gained consciousness and clarity.
“It was the most ridiculous gig we’ve ever played, possibly ever been to,” said Baby Godzilla frontman Matt Reynolds. “The crowd literally ripped the place apart and they pulled the plug on us after 4 songs due to concerns about how much boat would remain at the end. Utterly insane and a thing of absolute fucking beauty.”
Before Baby Godzilla’s electrifying four song set, Lags from Gallows and Matt Stocks brought the dance floor alive with ghoulish rock sets to a packed house.
Bex and Kylie (ex Sweet Dreams) upped the pace once we were allowed to switch the music on after a 45 minute shut down with a plethora of slamming hip hop and party classics leaving Rout and SGT Rolfy from the Shikari Sound System to smash the dried blood stains off the crowd with a blend of upbeat electronica until time was called. What a night of it.
“Crossfire’s Massacre was a raucous night of debauchery as always,” confirmed Enter Shikari’s Rob Rolfe. “Baby Godzilla tore the place apart, literally! There were fantastic outfits, big tunes and sore heads all round the next morning; it was a truly splendid occasion!”
Thanks to everyone who came out for this party, it was a riot! Big up to Vans for their support and everyone involved in making it another successful night out. Until next year, enjoy and share the gallery courtesy of our good friend Beth Crockatt.
