Azealia Banks

Pop and rock, House music, Hip hop

  • Critics' choice

At the tender age of 22 and with only one officially released EP to her name, Azealia Amanda Banks has become a festival-headlining rap sensation. That's down to three things: her knack for publicity (she's had prominent Twitter feuds with everyone from...

Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine

Alternative rock, Indie rock

Steve Lamacq must be weeping his eyes out: heavy ’80s indie rockers Jim Bob and Fruitbat have said that this show will be the laster Carter USM set ever. We're disinclined to believe them, but if you're a big fan it might not be worth taking the risk...

Janelle Monáe

Categories, Pop and rock

  • Critics' choice

Striking, diminutive, vertical-haired and Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Janelle Monáe hails from Kansas City. She was mentored by Big Boi and guests on OutKast's 'Idlewild' album, but she's also made a splash on her own with her freaky blend of sci-fi,...

Now based Stateside, and with a second season of his own US series 'Legit' having just aired in the US, this Brixton date is likely to be one of Jim Jefferies's only UK shows of 2014. So if you're a fan of this brash, confrontational and dangerously funny...

John Newman

Pop, Chart pop, Northern soul

Thanks to his guest appearances on two chart hits by Rudimental, John Newman became a household voice (if not quite a household name) last year. His solo material marries retro blue-eyed soul – strings, saxes, dry backbeats and Newman's crooning wail...

Jurassic 5

Hip hop

  • Critics' choice

The laid back, daisy age-style hip hop crew reunite for a headline tour. They only broke up in 2007, so we hadn't really even noticed they were gone, but it's nice to have them back nonetheless.

Formed at Nottingham University in 2011, London Grammar burst onto the blogs and the radio in early 2013 on the back of their 'Metal & Dust' EP. They're led by Hannah Reid's mannered, Florence-ish vocals, and have picked up plenty of comparisons to The...

  • Critics' choice

The Doggfather's spent the last year or so going through his own unique version of a midlife crisis. He's changed his stage name four times: to Snoop Lion for a patchy dancehall album, to DJ Snoopadelic for a decent instrumental chill-out album, and then...

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.

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.
