Forget pub crawls, music crawls could be the way forward.
A Goldsmiths student is planning to turn New Cross into a free walking concert as part of her final year project.
Lucia Davenport’s MA Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship project will see four bands playing at four venues on August 28 in order to bring the community together and celebrate fresh new talent.
Artists including Edit/Select, The British Class and Felipe Duarte from Soundacity will perform across Birdie NumNums, the New Cross Inn, Amersham Arms and Goldsmiths Library between 6.30pm and 9.30pm.
Student radio hosts from Goldsmiths’ station Wired will lead the audience and present the acts and an after party will be held at the Amersham Arms.
Lucia said: “Living and studying in New Cross has made me very aware of my surroundings and how the different locations interact with one another.
“The University is known for its creativity, and has brought forth many extraordinary artists such as Blur or James Blake.
“The New Cross Music Crawl is a unique opportunity to see some of these young and talented musicians and witness the future of South East London’s contribution to music.”
