We're all in our best recovery positions following the Camden Crawl, and writing up the evening reviews in fits and starts. In truth, and I don't know about the others, but more sleep would have been good. And lots of detoxinating juices. And a foot massage. Can we have masseurs next year please?
Some of the queues on Saturday night seemed to exceed Friday. The Earl of Camden in particular seemed to be queued up all night, and the Barfly's downstairs had spirals of queues. NW1 and the Dublin Castle also seemed, at various times, to have as many people outside them as inside.
Pull Tiger Tail were last-minute additions to the Dublin Castle bill for a slot that had been mooted as being everyone from Madness to The Enemy. They attracted a big crowd.
As ever with these things, set clashes were inevitable and there were several bands we wanted to see but didn't. Between us all we did see a lot of bands and artists though, many for the first time, and almost everything seemed to go like clockwork. The Camden Crawl's status amongst the year's music events burgeons every year, and this year was the biggest and best yet.
This is the last Camden Crawl live blog update. Head over to the festivals section from Monday for the full reports.
