Let's be honest: You've been hearing for ages about how New Cross is the super hip new neighbourhood, that's all sorts of amazing arts related activities are going on down there, and you're absolutely going to chceck it out. But you haven't.
If ever there was an excuse to go exloring, than Saturday's Nail the Cross is it. Stretching across six venues and many many hours, Nail The Cross is featuring dozens of bands and DJs as well as artists, deisgners, and photographers. Domino Records are continuing their birthday celebrations by hosting a room at Goldsmiths, featuring sets by Archie Bronson Outfit, newcomers Ipso Facto, and the indominable Clinic. Elsewhere, you can catch These New Puritans, Polly Scattergood (whom we may have mentioned we like), Ox.Eagle.Lion.Man and loads others. Full line-up and details below.
