Let’s say you’re just minding you own business down Camden Lock, wanting to do a bit of shopping or get a piercing. All of a sudden, your relative tranquility is shaken by an impromptu gig put on by a rock band. Well, that’s exactly what happened on Saturday, when Gnarwolves floated down the canal in a barge, surprising fans and curious onlookers with a five-song set. Says the band of their guerrilla gig:

WE STAND FOR SCRAPING BY. SKATE OR DIE. Playing on a barge was awesome, surreal in fact! We’ve played in some weird countries, small, tight, little venues, cafés and shops but we’ve never played on a boat, outside, in the freezing cold to hundreds of kids in Camden. We’ve played in three or four venues in and around Camden before but this was a whole new experience. This is one of the best gigs we’ve ever done. It was great to show everyone some real punk songs and that the punk scene is alive and kicking.

The surprise show was sponsored by the Dr. Martens brand, long synonymous with Camden, and their ongoing #STANDFORSOMETHING tour. Watch the mayhem – well, controlled mayhem, you know what I mean – below.
