FREE ALL NIGHT!
Roy de Roy's blend of polka-punk beats and gypsy ska backed by legendary high octane performances has already made them a big name on the European touring circuit, and we were well chuffed to welcome them back to the Albert. And they didn't disappoint!
Well also had DJs playing party-sized earfuls of ska, electro, punk, rock'n'roll, Motown, dancehall, big band, Mrs Mills, Beyonce and rockabilly till 2.30am - and it was free all night!

IVE ON STAGE:
ROY DE ROY
A red hot gypsy-punk quintet from Vienna, this band serves up an experimental cocktail of balkan, ska, klezmer and gypsy-punk. Already huge in Austria and picking up awards galore all over Europe, the band mix Balkan pola-punk with accordion, trumpet and danceable rhythms!
An ale-fuelled onslaught of ska, punk, rock'n'roll, big band, rockabilly, Mrs Mills and Liberace in a floor stomping package.
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.
DANSETTE 45 (Modtown Rockers)
Expect a record bag full of razor sharp 60s rockers, two-tone shakers, northern soul and Motown shoe shufflers!
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.
