Camden Crawl presents VARIETY: Fearless Vampire Killers (live), Comedian Ross Lee, Sniff The Glove (DJs) and Pet Supplies & Pop Quiz
Building up to what is set to be one of their most exciting years ever, London’s biggest multi-venue city festival The Camden Crawl are hosting a series of fortnightly ‘Variety’ club warm up gigs FOR FREE! Putting a modern twist on a traditional Variety performance and described by organisers as “four great nights out in one”, Variety, held at the Star of Kings in Kings Cross features cutting edge comedy, label hosted pub quizzes, guest DJs and a fantastic line-up of new music talent performing live.
Variety’s third outing sees The Camden Crawl team rocking the sign of the horns and turning it up to eleven with the renowned Pet Supplies & Pop Quiz, Leeds’ finest Ross Lee and epic death pop purveyors Fearless Vampire Killers plus there will be air-punching hair-metal highlights courtesy of Sniff The Glove DJs.
Wednesday 23rd November 2011
The Star of Kings, 126 York Way, Kings Cross, N1 0AX
Happy Hour drink specials and table service 6-9pm during the quiz & comedy
PET SUPPLIES & POP QUIZ (7pm) The regular quiz night at The Florist in Bethnal Green can only be described as the quirkiest in town. Run by a cabaret quiz master, you'll be laughing so much you'll forget to write down an answer it may also include a test of your plasticine modelling abilities. www.facebook.com/quiznightattheflorist
ROSS LEE (8pm) It is the infantile, oddly macabre quality of Lee’s stage shows that makes them terribly watchable. A striking figure: skinny and slight and akin to a camp Yorkshire Johnny Rotten in both manner and dress sense. He performs his shows with equal amounts of amiability and gusto and with a healthy dollop of the unearthly thrown in. Incredibly funny, odd and beguiling to watch. www.myspace.com/rossdavidlee
FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS (9pm) This powerful Suffolk five-piece blends “goth theatrics with anthemic melodies and curious rock twists”. A neo-classical, goth tinted, pop/punk/metal band that doesn’t fall short of conviction and vicious bite. Expect some special surprises from them tonight. www.fearlessvampirekillers.co.uk/
SNIFF THE GLOVE DJS (9.45pm) Prepare to dance to the ultimate rock classics courtesy of Sniff The Glove DJs. Expect spandex, headbands, patches, frilly shirts, studs, gloves and big hair (or wigs): “A pounding, pulsating celebration of 80's rock Wayne's World style” www.snifftheglove.com
