FREE ENTRY ALL NIGHT.
Brixtonites have always been good at drinking and dancing their way out of any crisis, and with the political map of the UK turning a desperate, soul-destroying sickly blue in the General Election, we had to party harder than usual.
But every cloud has a silver lining, and with our minds warmed by the memory of Nigel Farage failing to win a seat, Kool and the Gang's 'Celebration' was played with relish.
Offline regular DJs Ben 'Port, Editor and Ms Jizzy Rascal were on the decks all night serving up a feast of floorfilling tunes, spinning anything from ska, punk, drum'n'bass, funk, indie, 50s, big band, and - of course, Dolly and Cyndi.
PHOTOS FROM THE DANCEFLOOR:
DJ JIZZY RASCAL
The gin powerhouse served up a wonderful mix of retro, punk, hip-hop, dance and even a bit of Bowie. Hell yes!
An ale-fuelled onslaught of ska, punk, rock'n'roll, big band, rockabilly, Mrs Mills and Liberace in a floor stomping package.
Offline return for the fast pouring Dogstar legend from The 'Port.
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.
