Camden Crawl Update

Our capricious British weather is proving true to form so today we’re looking forward to a soggy Camden Crawl.

Southern Records is hosting bands at the Blues Kitchen (map: 111-113 Camden High Street).

Unfortunately, Emperor Machine has had to pull out due to an injury, so Action Beat have taken one for the team and will be playing two different sets, opening and closing the live entertainment that evening.

So the final lineup is:

  • Action Beat: 6:30 PM
  • That Fucking Tank: 7:45 PM
  • Drum Eyes: 9 PM
  • Veronica Falls: 10:15 PM
  • Action Beat: 12:30 AM

The DJ’s are on at 1 AM

We’ll be passing out these flyers all evening. Come visit us at the merchandise stand!

Southern Records hosting a venue for Camden Crawl

Southern Records is very pleased to be invited to host a venue at this year’s Camden Crawl.  If you don’t know the Crawl, it’s an “urban festival” in London, spanning two days, 40 venues, and 200 bands, with a focus on new, cutting-edge music.  And they have some “heritage acts” too (that means folks who are old enough to be your parents but still know how to rock out).

We’ll be hosting the Blues Kitchen on Sunday 2nd May.  We don’t know what bands will be playing yet.  The way it works is all of the venue hosts (fancy pants label folks and journalists mostly – but only the cool ones) get to nominate all their favourite bands.  A HUGE LIST (like 400 pages long)(ok maybe only 6 pages long) is then compiled and all the hosts vote for the bands they want to go through.  The bands with the most votes go to the top of the list and the Crawl starts phoning em!   Eventually they end up with a list of bands that have been nominated, voted in, and who are available to play.  Once that list is finalised, they lock all us hosts in a room with no food and water and we fight to the death for the bands we want to play our venue.

We’ll keep you posted on the progress, but for now you can mosey on over to the Crawl site where you can see the confirmed daytime schedule.
