The Gaymers Camden Crawl 2011 Tips series is back on Thursday January 27th with a line up bursting with electro-pop goodness. There’s no distinct holiday theme this time round – just a welcome evening off from the dreariness of January, with some great live music at The Bull & Gate.
Moving towards a more up-tempo feel from the December line-up, January’s bill will feature blissed out French multi-instrumentalist Anoraak and Worcester maverick Mat Motte (formerly of Mower), plus special guests yet to be announced.

CC: “French chillwave maestro Frédéric Rivière deals in piercing synths, nostalgic pop and a hefty dose of funk. Reminiscent of every summer you’ve ever spent in the sun, Anoraak is a breath of fresh air blown across the Channel to show you the light and get you dancing at the same time.”
CC: “Former frontman of the indie-pop band Mower, Mat Motte has re-invented himself with a unique mix of old- skool hip-hop, punk rap and psychedelic funk. Born of a hundred nights in dark basements and a smattering of summertime – it needs to be heard to be believed but it is well worth a listen.”
The 2011 Gaymers Camden Crawl is scheduled for Saturday 30th April and Sunday 1st May. The forthcoming May Bank Holiday event will mark the tenth edition of the Crawl since its inception in 1995.The organisers are currently amidst plans to top this year’s star studded line up which included such luminaries as Pendulum, The Drums, Plan B, Teenage Fanclub, We Are Scientists, Lostprophets, Roots Manuva, Lightspeed Champion and Gang of Four alongside more than 200 of the brightest new hopes from the UK and abroad across its 50 official Camden area venues.
