Caribou

Alternative rock, Electronica

  • Critics' choice

It’s fair to say that musicians aren’t always reliable. Dan Snaith, however, has well and truly bucked that trend with his Caribou project, consistently producing lush, psychedelic rock and electronic alt pop that always sounds inviting and fresh. On...

Die Antwoord

Hip hop

The South African hip hop trio, whose name translates from Afrikaans as The Answer, combine a mixture of trashy electro beats with some gloriously bizarre lyrics. Despite dressing as raving '90s hillbillies, they're a serious troupe who attracted the...

Fatboy Slim

Clubs, House music, Electro, Breaks

Having conquered the world and its radio airwaves with his big beat antics (and by making Christopher Walken dance maniacally in one of his videos), ol' Norman Cook has quite a track record. Considering the fact he also doesn't play out much any more,...

i moved here from aus mid 98 and my first gig was the beastie boys here. 16 years later it's still my favourite venue. every band should play here (and invite me) imo. 

shaktibhakti

Ive seen many bands here over the years! A friend of mine also hired the foyer/front for her club house parties in the early 90s! Always find/see people i know here too. Probably the best largest venue before it gets less intimate! I first came here when it was the stockwell odeon for Trex in 70s..good views due to floor slopes down toward stage/front.

Vlad Cool

Nice atmosphere, good size venue and incredible views from the sloped floor, never missed a second! looks cool from outside, where I had a nice chat with a homeless guy and then gave him some spare change to help him out with his various addictions.
