The 2011 Gaymers Camden Crawl is almost upon us and to preview the festival, I made a little mixtape for Mud Hut Digital, which you can listen to below. The podcast features my suggestions for "bands to watch" at the Crawl. We've also got their set times and details of stages below.
You might be remember that I had a bit of a chat with Nathan on a previous Mud Hut podcast. That was about my tips for 2011. We couldn't quite match our schedules to fit time in for a chat on this occasion though, instead I set him a set of tracks and some words which he has masterfully fashioned into a splendid podcast.
Have a listen to the podcast in the embed and try to check out some of the bands on offer over the weekend: PVT, Let's Buy Happiness, DELS, The Good Natured, MNDR, Johnny Foreigner, Danananaykroyd, Banjo Or Freakout, King Charles, and Little Comets. I have details of some of their appearances below, as well as a host of other acts possibly worth checking out.
If you want to know full details of the 2011 Camden Crawl schedule before the event then I'm afraid you have to buy the official app. It does have vouchers but obviously this isn't useful to people like myself without smart phones. Unfortunately, my fellow luddites will have to wait until the day itself to pick up a full programme of events.

If you want to know when some of the bigger bands are onstage and where - it's basically a case of the headliners being on at 10pm at either Koko, the Electric Ballroom or The Forum. Maybe that helps, maybe not.
