Press release as follows:
FRIDAY 27TH FEBRUARY,
222 Kensal Road
Nearest Tube: Ladbroke Grove
Following the huge success of the grand launch night, Criminal Records are back again with another monthly dose of HARAJUKU!! As their newest club residency, it's all for the love of Japan, and themed on the infamous HARAJUKU! Harajuku is known for its' bright colours and flamboyant dressers!! Many goers are dressed up as characters from Anime, Movie or Manga, others are dressed in Gothica or as Lolita. It is really a crazily fun place. This will be a great chance for everyone in London to escape to Japan!! Featuring music from Fuzz Valentine, No Cars, GinKinta, DJ Daztronik, DJ Rophone & More Acts TBA.
So, while Japan is really big for its live music, we are just planning to take it all one step further. We will be having a hot selection of bands on from 7.30 until 11pm, & then DJs until 3am!! It's not a school night either, so there's even more reason to make it a large one!! Not to mention a big Japan theme!! Anything goes in terms of style, just make it crazy!!
Expect Bright Colours, Geishas, Anime, Japanese Art, Indie, JPOP & Excellent Live Bands!
Featuring performances from
Fuzz Valentine are a three piece indie band from London. They combine boyish wonder with skittish pop music and they rock, already having received airplay with the track Far from both Claire Sturgess and Alex Zane on London station Xfm.
Japanese Pop trio No Cars add a genuine Japanese touch to our Harajuku night. Playing indie pop and contagious songs - these girls (oh and one guy) are not to be missed!
These pomp rock stomp box troubadours have already been making waves on the London circuit. Expect well crafted rock & strong musicianship from this all female trio.
Plus DJ Daztronik, DJ Rophone & special guest playing the best Jpop, Indie & Beats til 3am!!
£8 / £6 Advance or Facebook RSVP Guestlist
At the last event - we were loving the Japan theme!! Criminal Records did unfortunately allow the club to have their own DJ on for an hour though, so please note - No random RNB this time!! Full Harajuku!! all the way!! So, gear up for a full on night of indie / jpop & beats!
