Is Brixton best place for great free nights out in London?
I’ve lived all around London and can’t think of anywhere where you’d get this assortment of free, ‘scene’-free entertainment.
Here’s the roll call from Thursday night – four bars, all free:
9PM – JAMM, Brixton Road for IanW’s four-band free indie night
10PM – Rest Is Noise, Brixton Road for some indie band who manfully battled against their dreadful PA system
11PM – Albert, Coldharbour Lane for a very noisy Iggy Pop-esque rock band
12.30AM – Dogstar, Coldharbour Lane for vast amounts of drinking and dancing
.. and apparently there was a free night at the Windmill too and a live jazz band at the Effra!
Rest Is Noise. I really like the venue, but the sound has got progressively worse for live music.
Prince Albert – home of our Offline nights and one of the finest live music boozers in SW9.
Prince Albert crew.
The Dog with a lampshade for a hat, Dogstar.
There can’t be many places in London that offer this much great free entertainment on a Thursday night, no?
