Gig Guide: No Messin’

Make your way to Camden for some early May musical mayhem ....

What’s No Messin’ then?

No Messin’ is a season of live gigs in the heart of Camden Town, showcasing the best new live musical talent currently burgeoning from the UK’s music scene. 

The line-up has been curated by independent record label and ear-to-the-ground new music aficionados and tastemakers Killing Moon along with a little bit of help from new music talent house Disaster Artists.  The pair joined forces after running successful nights back to back with each other at January’s Spotlight series which took place at Camden Assembly. 

The night’s ethos is a very simple one.  Great acts, on a great stage, in front of a great audience.  The shows aren’t tied specifically to one genre, and No Messin’ has so far included acoustic performances and electronica as well as alternative rock.  It’s an anything-goes approach, with a commitment only that the musicians and audiences have an incredible night of entertainment and discover their new favourite artists.

“Putting on live shows is one of our favourite things to do, and we’re super excited to team up with Disaster Artists and Camden Assembly on this new series! We’ve found loads of cool new artists for 2018.” – Olivia Tambini at Killing Moon.

Where’s it happening?

Upstairs at Camden Assembly, an intimate 200 capacity gig space with some of the best on stage lighting the world has ever seen!

“The venue is such an iconic gig space, while Camden Town is a neighbourhood that’s been synonymous with launching new talent for decades.  It’s the ideal venue and the acts on are some of the most exciting around at the moment” – John Talbot at Disaster Artists.


Who’s playing?

Previous No Messin’ lineups have included Paris Youth Foundation, Safe to Swim, Austel, Barbudo and Slowlines. 

Wednesday 2nd May will be the third and final instalment in the monthly season with performances from Bath’s indie darlings Farebrother, Blackpool soul singer and songwriter Karima Francis, modern acoustic troubadour Swan Levitt and London’s gravelly voiced Joe Taylor. A fabulous closing line up for what’s been a very special series of events.
