So pretty much the only miserable thing about Christmas is that when it ends you have to wait a whole year for the next one. The clever people of Camden’s Flowerpot have thought long and hard about this and come up with a frankly miraculous way to welcome in 2010 and take the sting out of chucking out the advent calendar.
They’re throwing a New Year’s Eve Party at the HMV Forum that will feature live performances from the mesmorising Mumford and Sons, Johnny Flynn, Pete Roe and Andrew Davie (recently solo-ised driving force behind Cherbourg) among others.
There’s also a variety of DJs to see you through the night, and a second room of yet-to-be-announced musical brilliance from the Blissfields massive. Blissfields 2009 featured Laura Marling, Mumford and Sons and Gideon Conn among other delights, so you can safely expect a lot from these guys.
Tickets are £25, available here. Not for long though, in all likelihood.
