FREE ALL NIGHT!
Now one of Brixton's longest running clubs, our Offline Club grew from the urban75 web community and we've been putting on free parties around town since 2004.
This birthday party saw the return of local musicians, the Brixton Dub Collective, who created a hugely danceable landscape of experimental dancehall and dub, and a guest appearance from hip-hop/rap legend Rosko John, who performed tracks from his new EP, The Tactical Light.
As ever, there was a gang of DJs playing party-sized earfuls of ska, electro, punk, rock'n'roll, Motown, dancehall, big band, Mrs Mills, Beyonce and rockabilly till 2.30am. It was a blast!

We had free cake as it was our birthday!
BDC represent a solid amalgamation of Brixtonian musicians taking inspiration from all the sound systems worldwide on a mission to induce a bogle epidemic. BDC blissfully incorporate nostalgic, if not peculiar, live vocal samples amid a landscape of original Dancehall and Dub. Did you ever think you could dutty wine to Nirvana or Dolly Parton? Well, get to know.
Rosko John is a Brixton artist and musician who has been making some serious noise overseas. As vocalist with Archive he has had a number one album in Europe and is a gifted and formidable solo artist, remixer and producer in his own right.

BARON BOBBY BAUHAUS (charcoal soul)
More mysterious than Robert Smith's eyeliner bag, Bobby gets dancefloors rocking with quirky, darkside indie-pop and kohl-smudging breakbeats.
Videos and photo slideshows of street photography, random amusements and weird shizzle from the internet.
The Albert is less than two minutes walk from Brixton station and a few minutes from the Brixton Academy.
Turn left out of the tube station, take the second left down Coldharbour Lane (by the KFC), go past the Prince of Wales and it's the next pub on your left.
