Wed Oct 3 2012
Bringing Camden the delights of guitar music since 1973, this venue in the middle of Camden Lock might largely put on bands that tend towards the lesser known, but they still manage to pull off the odd coup.

Hot like the tears of a thousand supermodels, Skaters are NYC's latest export. The city's musical history echoes through their sound, but if The Strokes aren't going to make good time rock 'n' roll anymore then, dammit, someone's gotta step up.
