Camden Rocks 2018 – Camden, London

Bands seen: British Sea Power, Maximo Park, Man The Lifeboats, Fierce Ideas, Blood Red Shoes, Rews, Echobelly, Pop Will Eat Itself

I love Camden. It’s touristy and a bit “unauthentic” but I used to go up here as a teenager and marvel at how different it was to the Romford Shopping Centre.

I’ve put this down as one gig, even though it was really multiple gig in multiple venues. I still haven’t decided if I’m going to change that in the future. I still want to do 1,000 gigs in my lifetime so maybe if I get close I might revisit this!

There are way too many bands I could see here, so the ones I saw were bands I specifically wanted to catch live – Pop Will Eat Itself, Echobelly, Rews, Maximo Park and British Sea Power, even though I’ve seen all except Rews before – plus a few bands I might wander in in by accident. And that’s what I did.

It was weird wandering into the Underworld to catch Pop Will Eat Itself at 3.20pm, and even weirder to wander out again an hour later in bright sunshine.

I can’t quite remember who were in what venue. Echobelly and Rews were in the same venue, somewhere called FEST I haven’t been to before. Maximo Park were in Koko, and we were 100 feet up in the sky again as usual. Blood Red Shoes were in the Electric Ballroom I think – I was stuck at the back, it was rammed to the rafters and the sound wasn’t great at the back. British Sea Power were in Dingwalls and I was exhausted by this point, I remember going round looking for a chair to sit on!

A thoroughly great idea and hope to make it there another year.
