New Fire In The Old Camp is an exciting new concert series which features the best of T&T’s non-mainstream and independent bands and musicians. 

On the first Thursday of every month, the stage at the De Nu Pub (formerly Mas Camp Pub) is set alight with live music. Orange Sky, Gillian Moor, West Indian Rhythm Konnection and Jointpop have already brought their brand of fire to the stage. 

A release from the organisers said New Fire At The Old Camp will present Hard Local, No Imports August 7, featuring Trinbagonian hip-hop artistes—Young Rudd, Da Face and Enginear, Mark Hardy, Frost Blaze, Mecasmiastic and St Ans. 

According to the release, there will be “No imported accents here, this is Trinbagonian hip hop and rap. Our stories, our rhythm, our flow—the continuation of our oral tradition.”

New Fire In The Old Camp is a series started by Gerry Anthony. His experience as a sound engineer and as a musician and his belief in the need for forums for artistes to have a space to communicate with a wider audience are some of the driving forces behind the series. 

The live interaction between audience and performer is a profound exchange and goes beyond simply experiencing the variety and depth of musical talent we have in Trinidad and Tobago. It is definite action to make our society better.

The New Fire series takes place on the first Thursday of the month at De Nu Pub, corner French Street and Ariapita Avenue, Port-of-Spain.

New Fire presents Hard Local on August 7

Show starts at 8 pm
