London Venues Part 2

As promised, random posts about important London venues under the ‘Roots & Culture’ section are bound to continue… ‘Brixton Academy’ is one of the most important live music venues in London & can’t be missed: Info– it’s been around as a music venue since 1983 & has accommodated a huge amount of artists (ranging from Bob Dylan to Debbie Harry, The Clash, New Order & Leftfield- just to mention a few) & it’s still going strong under the name O2 Academy, Brixton: Home Page…but most people still call it ‘Brixton Academy’.
It’s an amazing Art Deco auditorium & worth checking out if your favourite band happens to be playing there live when visiting London.
Here’s a video which is going to help put you in the picture- apart from enjoying J5, you’ll be able to see what the venue looks like from the street as well as the inside:
