Catch Up!!!


Record Store Day madness ran wild on the blog last week (click here to read the various interviews, articles etc.) so a couple of announcements nearly fell the cracks so here is a bit of a round-up on some of the music gossip from the past seven days.

Camden Crawl Dublin

A number of acts have been added to the ever expanding inaugural Camden Crawl which is set to take over our capital city come May 11th and 12th. Young Wonder, Yeh Deadlies, Hush War Cry, Dublin Gospel Choir and more will join the likes of Clock Opera, Fionn Regan, And So I Watch You From Afar across 15 venues. The organisers of the urban festival are currently looking for volunteers to help out as stewards for the weekend, receiving free day passes in return.
