Newsletters Are Like An Orchard...

Nothing for ages, then an abundance of juicy fruitiness all at once (but with hopefully less wasps on your plums)!

From the beautiful, rugged beaches of deepest, remotest Cornwall, I was back in the Buzz and headed straight for The Crow for my birthday celebrations. Okay, I may have subsequently replaced my newly found, serene sense of being with the hangover of the gods, but damn, was it worth it!!! 3 epic bands: Audionasties, Kings Division and V8 played last weekend and they absolutely blew the roof off! It's not easy being a drunk teenager, when you are turning 45, but I like to think that I did the side proud, dancing like a drunk Aunt at a wedding, in a sea of music loving pissheads!!!

We were pretty rammed all weekend, which was a relief, as the bank holiday weekend can often fall foul to people off at festivals and holidays etc. I apologise to all that saw me on Sunday morning. I was deeply unpleasant, my head was thumping, my body ached, one of my eyeballs had turned red and kept weeping, so I spent my actual birthday looking like an old, dishevelled, particularly porky wildebeest with myxomatosis! Glad to report it was all nothing that some reggae, rum, a nap and a curry couldn't cure though!!!

We have a ridiculous amount of live music lined up for September... 18 bands in total!!!

We have touring bands, local bands, covers bands and original music... And every genre from a 7 piece soul band, indie britpop, classic rock, folk punk, rock n roll, US garage, pop punk to pirate metal!!!

PLUS Castle Comedy Night returns the last Wednesday of the month, Classic Album Sunday (Northern Soul) is 10th September, Ska From The Bar is the last Sunday of the month, LB Film festival will be here Thursday 28th September, Blockbuster Film Club - Cool Runnings is Wednesday 6th Sept, retro gaming session this Sunday, BYO vinyl every Saturday and more still TBA!!!

There is sadly no Big Fat Quiz of The Crow this September, BUT, we do have a Big Fat Film Quiz this Wednesday (30th Aug) instead! So if you're a fan of the big screen and think you know your Peter Pan from your Lieutenant Dan, your In Bruges from your Moulin Rouge, this is your night to shine!!!

This Thursday is our last Bar Night for a while, with great tunes, great beer and Crow Cocktails, Summer Berry Pimms, pool table, darts, board games. So pop down and show us some love. It will be great to see you all and catch you up with what's been going on and what we have in the pipeline!
