Ladies and Gentlemen, this is PopArt: Year Zer0

Friday 4 June 11pm-3am
Upstairs at The Camden Head, 100 Camden High Street, NW1 0LU

Well, the first outing of PopArt:Year Zer0 could hardly have gone better, and was a lot of fun as far as anyone can remember. Massive thanks to everyone who came down and made the night. It was exactly the ‘back to our roots’ thing we wanted – a no nonsense night of playing the music we love to the people we love and concentrating on what really makes a fantastic night out – life’s simplest and yet biggest and most enduring pleasures: drinking, dancing and all the best tunes that make your hips shake and your heart sing.

So we’re doing it all over again.

We’ll be playing all our and your favourite dance floor classics you’ve loved form down the years at PopArt. You’ll be drinking, dancing, meeting eyes across the dance floor, talking, laughing, crying, putting the world to rights.

We play all sorts of indie-pop, alt rock, stadium fillers, lost classics, glam stompers, sweet soul music, hip hop, punk, theme tunes and stuff we’ve found down the back of the sofa. We’d love it if you’d like to post your requests here.

Like last time there will be a comedy night on in the upstairs room until 11pm, then it’s straight on the dance floor. So grab a drink or two downstairs then climb the stairway to heaven and shake it like you wanna to break it. We’re not sure what’s happening yet in future months.

Among others we like to play songs by The Cure, The Clash, Dinosaur Jr,, Pulp, Wu Tang Clan, The Smiths, Belle & Sebastian, Tamla Motown, Bangles, Prince, Super Furry Animals, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, David Bowie , Suede, The Pixies, Kenickie, Ramones, Lemonheads, MGMT, Roots Manuva, Outkast, Queen, Violent Femmes, Blur, Madonna, The Replacements, Ash, The Cribs, The New Pornographers, Kiss.
