Housed in the basement of the World's End pub, the aptly named Underworld has seen a serious amount of alternative rock action in its time, including gigs by the likes of Pulp, Hole and Mercury Rev. It's a dark and somewhat gloomy, wooden-floored space with a rather awkward layout that makes getting in early to bag a good viewing spot from the balcony rails a smart move on busy nights. Air-conditioning and a late (until 3am) licence are bonuses. The music programme is heavy on the mutant punk/screamo, emo, noise and metal hybrid fronts, but not exclusive. Saturday night indie- rock club Silver, launched in 1993, is still running.
