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.
This 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. The venue will be open all day of course if you are planning to get amongst the daytime entertainment but our evening line up is looking pretty tasty and can now be released so here’s what we have planned for you.
Live Schedule upstairs at the Barfly:
8.20pm – HOLY 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.
9.25pm – DELS – 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!
10.30pm – CEREBRAL 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.
