Rock N Roll Cabaret
Genre : Cabaret/Burlesque
Rock N Roll Cabaret- Welcome to the Spring 2020 edition of The RNR Cabaret Freaking Friday Bump and Grind Sessions starring RACHAEL DARQ and her MADAME CRUMPETS crew as you'd expect, expertly and alluringly providing the razzle dazzle routines with a whole plethora of fine bands in the mix from 7.30p til 2am (free after 11.30pm)
SPeW Self proclaimed 'wonk funkers' the band have gleaned comparisons to NYC 'no wave' groups such as Bush Tetras and ESG, featuring members of Rude Mechanicals and the A Band (a favourite of Thurston Moore), much fun and fitfully freaky.
Midnight Men Sex Gang Children fans take note!!
Personality Crisis Superb punk covers band who zip thru a set of punk rock beauties with speed (oh yeah) and stylesome of the tunes you might expect (Pistols, Clash, Damned, Ramones, Dolls) , plenty you might not (Saints, Dead Boys etc) but are certainly very welcome. Magic.
Oliver Shaw Experience Oliver Shaw, bohemian rock baroque songwriter extraordinaire, who unveils his new album round about now, Of Darker Plains, a fantastic record produced by Mr Paul Tipler and featuring Ollie's trademark Radiohead meets The Beatles meets his very own Camden Town birthed gypsy garage rock sound. Ace.
Sexy Nirvana naughty naughty covers performed by Rachel Darq and The Wizard Of Bliss!
The Dublin Castle is a legendary pub and music venue located 2 minutes away from Camden Town tube station. It has been run by the same family for over 28 years and features 4 live bands every night as well as a great selection of beers, ciders and wines.
There are DJs after the bands on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and a fabulous jukebox in the front bar if you’re after a more relaxed atmosphere.
But what is it that makes the Dublin Castle the long-standing centre of the indie rock universe? Is it because it’s Madness’ birthplace? Because its stage has been graced by everyone from Blur, through Coldplay, Supergrass, The Killers, The Arctic Monkeys, Billy Bragg, etc? Is it because it was no surprise to see Amy Winehouse behind the bar serving costumers? Or Suggs? (who, mind you, tended to ignore costumers and serve himself) Or is it because far from being just another Camden venue it has established itself as an indie rock institution? The answer is that it’s not only because of its musical heritage that people come to the Dublin Castle, it’s because whilst you enjoy a pint, play some tunes on the jukebox, check out the live bands, get your dancing shoes on for our DJs, chat to our friendly staff or even stage-invade a little, you’re inadvertently being part of this movement the Dublin Castle leads, this cultural legacy. Expect no castle battlements. Just pure rock and roll royalty.
