Vic Lambrusco lays down the festive angry verse.
Iiiiit's SLEIGHED, ready to unleash a feast of festive big hits.
The deeply moving rendition of E17's 'Stay Another Day,' complete with the all-important white snow jackets. T'was a thing of great beauty.
The kazoo singalong for Jona Lewie's 'Stop The Cavalry'!
The legendary Bono-o-Meter is hauled out for the return of the Brixton's Best Bono competition.
This involves contestants coming onstage to belt out the 'Thank God it's them instead of you' line from 'Feed The World,' with points earned for earnestness, butt-clenching smugness and general Bono-ness.
The first would-be Brixton Bono. Many more were to follow!
Last year's champion takes the stage - but it wasn't to be his year thanks to a formidable effort by N (below).
» Offline Xmas gig part one: Mrs Mills Experience on stage!
Rolling out a barrel of irony-untroubled, hipster-free, good time entertainment, the Mrs Mills Experience is made up of an unlikely combination of Brixton-based dance DJs and punk musicians united by their improbable love of piano-thumper extraordinaire, Mrs Gladys Mills.
Delivering a variety pack of authentic, working class singalong tunes, the Mrs Mills Experience aims to make the audience the star, unleashing a salvo of good time music for these austerity stricken times. Expect a full on party atmosphere, with party hats, streamers and singalongs!
This new band have already been making huge waves, appearing on a BBC documentary as well as being filmed by Channel 4 launching an East End street market with Mary Portas - as well as being seen playing along to the Nocturne Penny Farthing races. Don't miss them!
Once seen, never ever, ever forgotten, Sleighed! play tribute to the greatest Christmas songs ever recorded, and deliver them in their own inimitable style. Singalong to the massive hits from East 17, Wham and join them in their quest to find Brixton's greatest Bono.
An interactive, scientifically-proven interactive Bono-o-Meter will record their appreciation for each wannabe Bono, as audience members are invited to come up and sing Bono's buttock-clenchingly earnest line from 'Feed The World.' And yes, THERE WILL BE PRIZES!
The band will also lead a mass kazoo screechalong to Joan Lewie's 'Stop The Cavalry' making this a Christmas party that will be burned on your retina and on your eardrums for a long, long time afterwards.
TO ENTER: Just turn up on the night and wait to be invited onstage!
An ale-fuelled onslaught of ska, punk, rock'n'roll, big band, rockabilly, Mrs Mills and Liberace in a floor stomping package.
NIPSLA (Falling over studios)
Packing more pop than a Rice Krispies factory, Nipsla's DJ bag is a veritable jumble sale of joy, overflowing with indie, dance, electro and party tunes.
DJ TWENTY QUID (Real Ale Heartland)
Funkier than James Brown on a spring, expect a floorboard-troubling mix of massive party tunes, spiced up with some soul, punk and new wave.
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.
