Crossfire confirmed to curate at Camden Crawl 2012!

We are very proud to announce today that CROSSFIRE have been invited back to the Camden Crawl in 2012! This will be our third year of being involved as one of the curators of the festival, so we are stoked that in May, we will be rolling out a superb line up of new bands once again to grace this get together.

Over the last 2 years we hosted The Barfly Club, so you never know, we could end up with a different venue this year and at this stage of the organisation and right now, we have no idea what bands will be on the bill. Planning will begin behind the scenes and In the next 2 months we will subject a list of over 100 new bands to the Crawl comittee, so if you have any recommendations for our line up this year, please get in touch.

The Crawl will take place on the 4th-6th May on Bank Holiday weekend in Camden, London, NW1. Earlybird tickets are on sale now at the cheapest price for those who are smart. See you there.

Cerebral Ballzy to headline Crossfire at Camden Crawl

thecamdencrawl2011This Sunday we will be at the Barfly for our evening of party goodness at the Gaymers Camden Crawl and will be expecting a night full of tunes and live bands from 6pm.

Live Schedule upstairs at the Barfly:

8.20pmHOLY STATE – visit www.myspace.com/holystate – Traveling from Leeds and signed to Dance to the Radio, this angular, post punk 4-piece should please fans of Hot Snakes and Jesus Lizard. Don’t miss them as they give a great live show and will be a band you will hear much more about this year.

9.25pmDELS – visit www.myspace.com/imdels Signed to Big Dada Records (offshoot of Ninja Tune) DELS is an MC who pushes what he can say with words as hard as he can and combines it with a really adventurous attitude towards music. His debut album ‘GOB’ is released on Monday so this should be quite a party!

10.30pmCEREBRAL BALLZY – visit www.myspace.com/cerebralballzy Our headliners are set to take the roof off the Barfly in true hardcore style. The Brooklyn based punk 5-piece play fast, skate punk that Bad Brains and first album Suicidal Tendencies fans will be proud to hear so expect total mayhem!

DJ Schedule, downstairs at the Barfly

6pm-9pm: CROSSFIRE SOUND SYSTEM with Zac Slack and James Sherry. Expect a mixed bag of punk rock, psych-garage, stoner and classic alternative and indie tracks.

9pm-11.15pm: SWEET DREAMS DJs. Returning for more since last year’s Camden Crawl these 2 ladies who know their dirty hip hop and also love a party classic!

11.15pm-12.30pm: The CROSSFIRE SOUND SYSTEM will be charging on all fronts with mash up, rock and punk classics once Cerebral Ballzy take your ears off. Expect a sing-a-long.

12.30-2am: RITA MAIA. West London’s electronic slayer will be dropping Hip Hop, Drum n Bass and dubstep hammers until close at 2am.

The Camden Crawl 2011 preview

So it’s that time of the year again as you will probably know, Crossfire have been invited back to this year’s Gaymers Camden Crawl as one of the 20 curators. This year’s Crawl taking place on the Bank Holiday weekend of April 30th-May 1st is set to be one of the best ever with some great artists playing in North London’s most creative spot for music. Watch the video of the good times at last year’s Camden Crawl here and reminisce on last year’s carnage before being introduced to what’s coming up.

We are back at The Barfly on Sunday May 1st and will kick the night off from 6pm downstairs with the CROSSFIRE SOUND SYSTEM packed with a mix of punk rock, hip hop, psych-garage, classic indie and rock tracks. We will also see guest DJ sets from our female guests this year kicking off with SWEET DREAMS (pic below) who will bring a bag full of filthy hip hop and for the grand finale we welcome West London’s Dub Step slayer RITA MAIA.

Rita (pictured below) is a founder of Badmood, a collective championing new bass-driven music in Portugal. Based in London she hosts the Saturday night electronic music show, ‘Sine of the Times’, on the critically-renowned Resonance FM, playing bass-heavy music from all around. So expect hammers until close at 2am.

We will be announcing our venue line up in the next week so look out for the news of who has been picked to play this year from the list of acts confirmed below. You will not be disappointed though as our headline act will be exploding in your faces at 10.30pm as you would expect. For those who know us well, you will be aware that we love skateboarding and hardcore so there’s only band on this list that actually fits the bill. Work it out from this list below and look out for the announcement in our news section. There will also be an amazing post-punk band, a well known hip hop set from a Ninjatune act and an indie band playing on the night. All to be revealed next week.
