Introducing - Just A Crush

I was very happy to hear that more Dance Magic Dance alumni are starting up new projects, to ensure there's absolutely no excuse to stay home on a Friday night. With Mireia and Belle skipping the light fantastic to the world beats of Pap-Il-Lon, Laura's new venture Just a Crush is a new club night and record label based in London, co-run by Claudia with a mission to "capture the same excitement felt listening to a favourite song for the first time, buying a first much-coveted record and sneaking into a first gig and feeling as though the band was playing just for you."

The girls met through a common musical friend and it only took one beer and two gin-tonics to start this new project. Just A Crush will be taking over several London (and later, Spanish) venues on an ad hoc basis, to showcase their favourite British and Spanish music. They will also be releasing their first cassette very soon, so keep an ear out.

And as we all love any excuse to drink beer and party hard, Just A Crush are having a launch party to celebrate their birth into the world! Details below...

Event: Link

Friday May 11th 2012
The Waiting Room (Underneath The Three Crowns)
175 Stoke Newington High Street, N16 0LH London
£4 Advanced (We Got Tickets), £5 On the door

Over to L&C to give the low-down on this rad line-up...

Nothing we could say about this London trio would do them justice. You have to see them. You have to be there. To know them is to love them. This will be their first proper London gig of 2012 and no matter what the weather’s like that day, they will make the sun shine in The Waiting Room!

One of the best London bands at the moment and responsible for our favourite 2012 7” so far: Drip Haze (out on their own amazing label Marshall Teller Colours have been going on for some time now and they keep getting better and better. We just can’t get enough of them!

We’re super stoked that Barcelona garage rockers Mujeres are jumping on a train to pay London a little visit during their The Great Escape adventure. The band, who just got back from SXSW and are currently playing in Spain with Jacuzzi Boys, will be presenting their new album ‘Soft Gems’ before returning to Spain to play Primavera Sound.

Virginia Wing is our favourite new band in the world. They’re a made out of people from other bands (Let’s Wrestle, The Proper Ornaments, La La Vasquez) and sound like nothing you’ve ever heard before. They have just released a tape on SexBeat and great things are bound to happen to them!


Rory Attwell - London’s number 1 producer will take over the decks between the bands
Diverge - The one and only Johny Chhetri promises to play a punk-rock special that will sure get everyone dancing!
