Those Dancing Days – Saturday, Annies, 10pm

This is going to be such a very good festival, my friends …

Further thought on who to see at this year’s Crawl: daytime-wise, incidentally, I’m already set on settling down with Magpie’s Nest on the Sunday; Saturday is up for grabs, but the Spread Eagle is always good value. Given how I’m packing out my evening schedules, I might just let the rest of my group decide what to do with Saturday afternoon. That’d be big of me, right? They’ll be grateful, I know it.

In terms of more evening acts, I’m pretty firm in still fancying Dananananakroyd (with whom the Crawl have an interview here), Piney Gir (with whom they had an interview here), and Treetop Flyers (get with the programme, Camden Crawl!); Villagers, Cate Le Bon and Frankie and the Heartstrings still seem like no-brainers, too. But how about any more for any more? The very wise Sheena over at the Ruckus has suggested a few mighty fine additions: Marques Tolliver, Dry The River, and Slow Club will all be making the right sort of sounds for my ears, too.

I’ve seen British Sea Power live a couple of times now, and they’re great – but do you check out a band you’ve seen before at a festival full of acts you haven’t? Maybe not. I love Miles Kane’s work with Last Shadow Puppets, but will he clash with Villagers? Those Dancing Days, Tom Williams and the Boat, and Let’s Buy Happiness will all be worth seeing; but what about leaving room for the surprises you’ve never heard of?

Roll on the programme, people …
