THE CRIMEA

Get out your calendar and start requesting time off from work…new Crimea shows and events are being announced.

Rob Da BankDavey will be doing – and I quote – “an acoustic type thing” on BBC Radio 1′s Rob da Bank & Friends show on 26 May. Sorry to all of you who live in the GMT zone because I just noticed that Davey’s time slot is somewhere between 2 am and 4 am. Meanwhile, those of us on this side of the Atlantic will be enjoying his acoustic handiwork at far more reasonable hour (9pm Eastern/ 8pm CST / 7pm Mtn / 6pm Pacific) Listen to it online here. This is part of Rob’s “Campfire Special” and will also include some live tunes by Adem, Johnny Flynn, Jose Vanders, and Noah (from Noah & the Whale).

Keeping on the acoustic note: Davey will be heading back to his old stomping grounds of Aberstwyth to perform at the ‘castle rock‘ on the seaside. This is a free show…what an incredible setting…if no one gets photos or audio of this event then there will be trouble. Hear me? Trouble! Show starts at 8pm.

Summer festivals are just around the corner – The Crimea will be performing a full band set on 27 July at The Square Festival in Borth. (I believe Borth is slightly north of Aberstwyth.) If rumors be true, you get a discount to something called an Animalarium when you buy festival tickets. Let your imagination run wild with trying to figure out exactly what an Animalarium is. It sounds like an evil zoo [ED: surprisingly accurate description]…like lions and birds and kangaroos are held in a giant tank together to let Darwin and the food chain work their magic. Sounds like a lovely day out! Take your kids!

Reminder reminder reminder – Enterprise residency shows continue..tix are only £6, come on, what can you get for that pittance these days? Mark your calendars if you haven’t already done so – remaining dates are 14 May, 28 May, 09 Jun…all shows start at 8pm. Buy your tickets at thecrimea.net. And for more info on all future shows and festival appearances just check out the gigs page above (yes, it works again) or the Last.fm events page from which the listings are taken.

Lastly – quick thank you to Christopher for letting me guest blog at this site. If you haven’t checked out the Archives section of this website then you should reserve an evening and treat yourself. I did such a thing last Friday evening and it made for a crackin’ bit of reading as I enjoyed several glasses of rum & diet coke.. Christopher, hopefully this post came out better than the last one, but the paragraph formating codes are not playing nice so I apologize if you need to come in and tidy up again.

We get to see them live, after all ;-)

    For those of you based in the UK not willing to stay up all night to listen to the radio show, it can be accessed via the BBC iPlayer for 7 days after broadcast.
